Nate Diaz has been in the MMA scene long enough to know that he should get what he deserves. And right now, he knows he deserves a huge pay if he agrees to fight Conor McGregor again.
This is why he blasted Donald Cowboy Cerron for claiming in public that he would fight for free.
“If you guys keep saying, ‘I’ll fight anybody,’ of course you will. That’s why you started, right? That’s why I started. Like, I’ll fight any-motherf***ing-body. I’m in this s**t to be the best, motherf***er. If you’re not in it to be the best motherf***er, I don’t even know what the f*** you’re doing it for.
If I don’t think I could beat everybody, what the hell am I fighting for? I think I’ll beat everybody still, in every weight class too. I’m not talking about three five-minute rounds. I’m talking about to the realness. I’ll beat everybody. I’ll find a way.”
“Treat yourself like a business and quit f***ing (saying), ‘I’ll fight for free’. “That don’t help nobody. That’s bad karma for you for even f***ing (saying that).
Stupid ass Cowboy Cerrone says that s**t. That’s bad karma for everybody. You’ll fight for free, now everybody else has got to? Why wouldn’t they pay us? Because they got dumbs**ts like you fighting for free.”
“Start acting like a businessman and start treating yourself like a business and get your ass paid for being in an Octagon. The whole world watches you fight.
Entertainers are there in the front row. I’m sitting there with Lil Jon and f***ing Mike Tyson and who else? Everybody. Anyone you could think of that’s famous is sitting front row. Baseball players. These guys are getting paid millions of dollars, and we’re entertaining the entertainers.”
“So doesn’t that make us the crème de la crème? Shouldn’t we be paid the f*** out? Why are you fighting for free, you dumbs**t motherf***er. That s**t gets on my last nerve.”
Diaz certainly feels strongly about the issue, especially since he thinks he is worth much more than what UFC has given him.
“I’m not going to sit back and say I’ll fight anybody. Nah, I’ve been there. I’ve done that. I don’t have to say that. Now I’m like, ‘f*** you, pay me, motherf***er’.
