Problem solved. Fight fans were scrathing their heads on Monday when it was revealed that UFC lightweight Nate Diaz made a measly $30,000 ($15k/$15k) for beating up Gray Maynard at TUF 18 Finale last weekend in Las Vegas (video), which is a significant drop from past "Sin City" payouts like this one. So what the heck happened? Did Diaz take a pay cut after this public faux pas? Nope, turns out his new manager, Mike Kogan, "sucks" and likely took a bath at the negotiating table, according to Cage Potato. Slavery FTW! Photo by Esther Lin for MMA Fighting.
