    I hope the UFC, this time pays Nate Diaz what he’s really worth . Shame on you UFC, and Dana White! Do the right thing and pay him what is right!

      It’s obvious you sir have know idea how the pay system works in the UFC. If you Don’t know then shut your mouth :)

      • Pat Garret

        He was payed ,16k by ufc last time he fought. You seem to be a expert please tell everyone here. What u think he was compensated? I know he gets , sponsors. But 16k for a veteran like Nate. Who has fought and sacrifice ,his body for years, for us fans…

          Contract information is usually kept under wraps so we usually don’t get the details but I also found that odd. I believe there’s more to it than that as Nate was making 37k to show/37k to win for a while and then was bumped up to 50k to show/50k to win for two fights. Even if it was time for contract a negotiation after the loss to Benson and he was going to take a pay cut, it shouldn’t have gone from 50k all the way down to 15k which is significantly lower than he’s made in over 5 years. So I suspect there’s more to it than what’s on paper as 15k is absurd for Nate, maybe Dana is giving him a larger under the table cut for tax purposes.

            People are also forgetting out PPV cuts… that makes a huge diff. Here is a link to an article that everyone should take a look at.. http://www.forbes.com/sites/kurtbadenhausen/2013/11/16/how-georges-st-pierre-makes-12-million-a-year/

            You do realize that most guys don’t receive PPV points and I don’t believe Nate ever got a single PPV cut. Most of his fights have been on free events or free prelims and if there was ever a fight where he may have been set to get a PPV cut it would’ve been his title fight but that was on free TV. Only the very top of the food chain in the UFC receives PPV points. Also GSP is the most well paid fighter in the UFC and holds all records for PPV sales so it wouldn’t be right to use him as your baseline when discussing a guy who barely gets on PPV cards.

            You think Dana White, the president of the huge organization that is the UFC, is paying fighters under the table? There isn’t an insult that is substantial enough to encompass how ridiculous that notion is.

          • Jay Mcgarrity

            It’s not technically considered fighter pay but yes I know for a fact that Dana pays them money on the side. The well known “locker room bonuses” or whatever you want to call it. Dana has referred to it several times as well as other fighters. You keep calling me out with no idea what you’re talking about, that’s how trouble starts.

            That interview goes into it a little. I’ve been following the sport for quite some time now and several fighters have talked about being handed envelopes full of cash after events. This is money that is not part of their contract. By no means does he say here you go, this money is for you so you don’t have to pay taxes on it, but at the same time do you think everyone is reporting that money as income? The money on the hush hush, locker room bonuses, discretionary money, whatever you want to call it, it exists.

            I guess comments with links in them require mod approval so just google UFC locker room bonuses or UFC discretionary pay to educate yourself. It’s not everyday that you learn something but today will be one of those days where you can say you’ve had your little head turned upside down after learning what you considered to be a “ridiculous notion” deserving an insult so grand that none powerful enough exists, is in fact true.

            Feel free to be bigger than the rest of these scumbags and admit it when you are wrong. While you’re at it, you may as well throw in an apology. On a side note, are you that guy that told me nobody has ever used an Omoplata to sweep? That prick disappeared after insulting me several times only to be proven wrong by several examples of Omoplata sweeps in UFC fights as well as instructional videos on how to use an Omoplata to sweep.

            I enjoy intelligent debates but sometimes it feels like all I do here is shoot fish in barrels.

          He gets an amount for accepting the fight before it even takes place. Dana has said on many occasions that he does not give that info out unlike other sports.

          • Pat Garret

            Appreciate your knowledgable answer.

      • Jay Mcgarrity

        It’s not much of a secret that the Diaz brothers have both gotten their fair share of the “locker room” bonuses as well as OTN bonuses with their exciting fighting style but that still doesn’t mean Nate isn’t underpaid. There are a lot of guys that Nate has to pay after each fight as well.

        I believe he was making a fair amount for where he was at until his last fight though. He was making 37k to show with a 37k win bonus for a while and then got bumped up to 50k to show with a 50k to win bonus. His last fight he only made 15k which is significantly lower so I’m not sure if he’s receiving a larger portion under the table now or if the contract was renegotiated to have a lower to show with a much higher to win bonus but 15k is really low for him and there’s no two ways about it.
