UFC President Dana White is saying that Nate Diaz became a very rich fighter after his bout with Conor McGregor at UFC 196. It is a night and day situation to what the Diaz brothers grew up around as Nate revealed that he used to go to jiu-jitsu classes only because some older guys training at the gym would buy him food after class.
While Diaz’s disclosed pay did not match Conor McGregor’s $1,000,000 disclosed earning, White implies that there was much more to his pay than what was reported.
White said in a recent interview, “Listen. Anyone that knows the Diaz brothers, I will tell you this. Nate Diaz made a lot of money on Saturday night. He made a lot of money, he made millions of dollars so, we’ll see what happens. I might never see Nate Diaz ever again.”
