Nate Diaz claims he’s the “money fight” Conor McGregor (pictured) has been waiting for, while McGregor believes it’s the other way around. In fact, McGregor says Diaz should be thanking him for finally making him a millionaire.
McGregor does have a point. Saturday will mark the biggest payday of Diaz’s 12-year professional career, by far. On the flipside, while McGregor should still make bank at UFC 196, it might be his smallest paycheck in his last three outings.
Regardless, that won’t stop the UFC’s golden boy from posting pictures of himself cruising around in countless luxury vehicles and shopping in Las Vegas’ most expensive designer stores. Don’t believe me? Just check out his Twitter and Instagram accounts.
