UFC Quick Quote: Nate Diaz is going to need a pay raise if you expect him to stay at 155

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

Nate Diaz has a (expletive) message for those (expletive) fans watching his (expletive) rematch on Fox Sports 1.

"When I lose, trust me, I'm as crazy as a (expletive). I'm always trying to win. Everything I do is to win. People say it's all for the fans. That's some (expletive). We're all here to win some fights. I've lost some fights in this UFC, but no one has defeated me. Good luck on beating me again. I lost to Thomson and Anthony Pettis is the champ. They're supposed to be the hot (expletive) right now. Those guys are the guys to beat and on top of it. I was ready to go to 170 pounds. I'm over making weight and all this. I don't feel I get paid good enough to lose weight all year long. I can make the weight no problem, but I wish I was getting compensated a little better for it. At the same time, I wasn't going to leave this division letting those two (expletive) run the show."

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18 Finale headliner Nate Diaz, who almost ditched his Gray Maynard rematch on Nov. 30 for a high school reunion in the 209, has found yet another reason to abandon his post at 155 pounds, as Las Vegas Sun brings word that the Stockton slugger isn't getting paid well enough to be cutting weight a couple of times each year. So why does he bother with the lightweight division? It has nothing to do with his dreadful performances at welterweight (like this one), but rather the fact that two (expletive) like Josh Thomson and Anthony Pettis are at the top of the totem pole. Until then, Diaz is going to bite the bullet, cash his measly 50/50 checks and keep on, keepin' on. Anyone out there sympathetic toward his cause?
