    Truly obsessed with McGregor.

    McGregor has showed him the good life. Nate Diaz can't get any sort of substantial money without Conor because most people just wouldn't give a fuck. He's not a needle mover regardless of how much people may get upset by it. The UFC don't give a fuck - if he could make them lots of money, they'd put him in there.

    Conor KO's him the third time I think. Nate has taken a hell of a beating over the past 8-9 months. Goes down in the second.

    He's playing it smart.

    He's made 10 times more in 2 fights with McG than he did in ALL of his previous fights combined.

    A third fight sets him up financially for life.

    Of course he will pick Colin since its easiest match up for him

    Nate is 2:0 against McGoobz

    It would be hilarious if they gave him the title shot just to see Khabib's reaction.

    When fighters get paid enough that they don't have to fight, this sort of thing becomes more common.

    Makes sense.

    Why fight for maybe 100k when you can fight for 2 million?

    If your boss asked you- "you can make your normal pay or you can make 20x your normal pay for basically doing the same work, you pick..."

    Would that be a tough choice for anyone?

    these diaz bros need to figure out an alternative opponent for 7 figure paychecks. they can't both ride Mcgregor's coat tails for the rest of their professional careers. at least i hope not.

    He was fighting for 20k/20k before Conor blessed his life.

    Money wise and timing, this is the fight to make.

    Just sucks for the real contenders.

    However..

    ND LW champ 2017!

    Nate is the epitome of a democrat. Just rides on someone else's coattails and shows up for the paycheck that someone else earned them.

    At 155 odds go up considerably. Only so many shots you can take after a decade in the UFC. I don't think Conor has even reached his peak yet.

    Guess that explains why red states generally have higher percentages of welfare recipients.

    He went from poor in the streets to having a bit of money. That's better than being born rich (or stupid) like most republicans.

    in generally agree, but can you really blame him? their trilogy fight would make a good amount of money. if nate loses before that trilogy fight, it could hurt his chances of getting it. better to wait it out a bit and not lose, before it becomes an impossibility that he gets that fight.

    Yeah because only smart people want the government to tell them what they can and cannot do

    Let's make it 3-0 baby! If the scumbag commission didn't block nick from cornering Nate in the second fight Nate would have got the finish there too

    Actually he isn't he's 1-1 an that's a FACT. There isn't even a case to be made for Nate winning the 2nd one, a draw was as generous as could possibly be but even that would have been ridiculous.

    If someone checked, would they find that a large percentage of your posts jam your politics into subjects that have nothing to do with them?
