The product of Stockton, California is coming off the biggest win of his career along with his biggest payday spoke with Chael Sonnen on his “You’re Welcome” podcast and talked about his recent appearance on UFC Tonight. At a point during Diaz’s appearance, he asked where former insider for UFC Tonight, Ariel Helwani was at the time.

Sonnen asked Diaz if he knew that Ariel had been fired the day before his appearance.
“Ha ha,” Diaz said as both he and Sonnen cracked up laughing. “Hey, check it out. Those f*ckers tried to team up on me, all three of them.”
Diaz went on to imply that the hosts of the show had their intentions of promoting guest host Michael Bisping and stirring up a potential fight against his older brother Nick.
“They’re like a little funny ass team in there at UFC Tonight and I ain’t going back to that sh*t unless the real motherf*ckers are there because they tried to pull their little tricks. That’s cheating because if I had UFC Tonight to promote my own fights then I would be the most popular motherf*cker in the game because I’d be stirring up shit with everybody.”
Sonnen went on to say that if he was a host on the show, he would have addressed Nate’s question of where Ariel Helwani was.
“I’m like, speak the f*ck up you f*cking p*ssies,” Diaz said as he put the hosts on the hot seat. “I’m not here to knock UFC Tonight, but it turned into that in this conversation.”
One thing is for sure, Nate Diaz will definitely speak up when his time comes.
