Everyone knows Nate Diaz is not exactly a company man, but his latest interview is crazy. The bad boy of the world’s biggest MMA promotion tells everyone exactly how it is…

UFC president Dana White made some interesting statements since Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz’s second fight. Although Diaz had been competing for the promotion for many years before McGregor arrived, White basically said he was ‘worth nothing’ without McGregor.

Apparently, even without McGregor, the younger Diaz brother is worth a title shot at welterweight. Since losing narrowly in the rematch with McGregor at UFC 202, Diaz has been inactive.

Again citing his request for more money, Diaz is playing the UFC at their own game. Ironically, the promotion would ask Diaz to compete at UFC 219 in a 170-pound title fight, one that he quickly turned down.

With their biggest star McGregor out for at least six months, Diaz is needed by the UFC more than ever.

Diaz Turns The Tables

Why the UFC would expect Diaz to budge on his demands after the way White has talked about him is beyond this writer. After making bank for his victory and the subsequent rematch with McGregor, Diaz has all the marbles.

During his most recent interview, Nate Diaz has turned the tables on the promotion that refuses to pay the big bucks. Taking a page out of McGregor’s book, Diaz has urged the UFC to ‘ask nicely.’

He also shreds the rest of the fighters on the roster while talking to Outside the Box:

“I’m a G, N*gga”

“I’m not fighting because I am a fighter. You’re fighting because someone’s telling you to fight. I’ll fight whenever the f**k I wanna fight. That’s because I’m a G, n**ga, I’m a fighter myself. I ain’t trying to do what nobody says, I’ll do what I say. And I will fight when I’m approached respectably.”

“I don’t need to fight nobody,” Diaz continued. “I’ll fight anybody, but I don’t need to fight anybody. And the fighters are like, ‘He’s not a fighter,’ I’m like, it sounds like you’re being manipulated into trying to manipulate me into getting into a fight. Guess what? You work for somebody; I work for me. Who’s the fighter now, motherf**er?”

“Ask Nicely, Motherf*cker”

“Ask nicely, motherf**ers. Ask nicely,” Diaz said. “I’m talking about the organization, the fighters. And make it a big deal, because I’m not trying to just sign a contract just because it’s a good idea for you guys.”

“Time will tell. I don’t know right now,” Diaz said. “There’s talk. They (the UFC) call me, we talk about things, but I think what’s happening is they want me to ask, and beg, and I don’t need nothing from nobody. I don’t need nothing from anybody.”
