Meanwhile, we’ve got Nate suggesting he won’t come back for less than $20 million dollars. But we’re pretty sure he wasn’t offered that much to fight Dustin Poirier at UFC 230, so the truth must be somewhere in between.
“I just think about, I’m not turning down any fight ever,” Diaz told training partner Andre Ward. “They might be turning down the deal. So it’s on them. It’s not in my hands because I’ll fight when you pay.”
You can’t just pay Nate Diaz $20 million dollars without blowing up your entire pay structure. But at the same time, the guy was involved in two of the biggest PPVs in the history of the UFC. His fights with Conor McGregor sold 3 million pay-per-views for the UFC, grossing $180 million for the UFC.
We will keep you updated if further information made available.
