This has got to be one of the greatest interviews we have seen from UFC veteran Nate Diaz.

The younger Diaz has just come off the biggest win of his career after submitting UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor at UFC 196. Along with the biggest win of his career, Diaz also was awarded the biggest payday of his career. UFC President Dana White said that Diaz earned millions of dollars in his fight against McGregor.

Diaz was asked in a recent interview what he has bought since his big payday.

“Big bag of cookies,” Diaz said while motioning with his hands trying to show the size of the bag. “Big ‘ol bag. But, besides that I haven’t really bought much. The check just went through. I was wondering if they were gonna like, cancel the check.”

Diaz said jokingly, “‘You f*cking beat our guy. Cancel his shit. Make him fight again.’”

Regarding Diaz’s method of payment from the UFC, he said he got a physical check because he was unsure it would go through with direct deposit.

“They tried to do direct deposit, but I’m like nah, I want to see the check. I don’t know if that’s gonna directly deposit into my shit, you know what I’m saying?

“So they gave me a check, I put it in the bank and then, everybody wants to borrow money now. I gotta pay taxes though, so we gotta get that.”

If you think this interview with Nate was a classic, make sure you share it with some friends that you think will enjoy it as much as we did.
