    Why does a guy coming in from a local circuit promotion for his first ever fight for the UFC, on the first prelim fight of the night before 90% of the crowd has even shown up deserve $20k?

    OP dont put Nick Diaz and Jon Jones in the same sentence ever again.

    Nick Diaz sells nearly 1,000,000 PPVs. Jon Jones sells only 300k PPVs.

    Nick Diaz slaps his opponents in the face. Jon Jones pokes his opponents eye.

    Nick Diaz is a BJJ black belt. Jon Jones is a Gaidojutsu black belt.

    Nick Diaz is a true martial artist. Jon Jones is not.

    Nick Diaz is loved. Jon Jones is hated.

    So please give Nick Diaz the respect he deserves and do not associate his name with Jones.

    One more thing, Nick Diaz has never lost a rematch. Jon Jones is about to lose his rematch against Gus.

    Ok, don't be stupid. I love Nick Diaz and am not a fan of the Jones personality. But you can't tell me Jon Jones has ever lost a rematch either. He hasn't even lost a fight...

    Jones' resume is one of the best on the planet right now. Nick Diaz is more exciting sure, but Jones is a much better mma fighter.

    That's why you'd never make it as a fighter.

    Wow. That's bloody sharp!



    Either way, Nick is far from 'alpha'. Pretty sure alpha's don't whine about having to drive a Honda Civic...

    Or you could be like GSP and be proud and hardworking AND rich. And not always feeling like the world is against you.

    Petty sure there are more than just the two options you put forth.

    I'm convinced that people who walk around using words like "alpha" to describe themselves or other guys are overgrown adolescents who haven't been properly conditioned to exist in an adult society.

    0 win against a top 10 WW , 9 losses & wants to fight Anderson Silva for 7 trillion dollars . Am i the only one who thinks it would be crazy to pay him a shitload of money to fight someone he has a 2% chance of beating ?

    I know I'm gonna regret this but what would you say the solution is for a fighter apparently lacking in self respect to get paid more than 5k? And do you think they have the same negotiating power, financial independence, and draw as Jones and Diaz so that is why it must be they don't respect themselves fighting for 5k? Or might it be its that or nothing are their choices and misplaced pride doesn't pay the rent?

    Thank you for such a well thought out and insightful response. I'm sure your parents are very proud of you.
