Nate Diaz was a guest on a special edition of the MMA Hour. During the broadcast, Diaz was asked about a potential matchup against Tony Ferguson. A very adamant Diaz informed the host that he was offered to fight Tony Ferguson and agreed to the matchup but gave the UFC some ultimatums. He stated that when his “circumstances” wasn’t met, he changed his mind.
Diaz stated “And then I thought about it. Why am I going to do Conor McGregor’s (expletive) work for him? No, fight each other (expletives), and then you get a shot at the golden child right here (expletive). What are you going to do? You’re going to take time off to make $1million to fight Mayweather, and I’m going to do your dirty work for you?”.
Diaz went on saying that he isn’t looking for a fight but would fight Ferguson for the right amount of money. He refused to state what the money was.
