Mike Kogan calls UFC champ n-word, delivers backhanded compliment to Asians

Jason da Silva-USA TODAY Sports

Meet Mike Kogan, equal opportunity offender.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight titleholder Jose Aldo has been complaining about his salary, which he claims does not jive with the effort and risk involved with being a top mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter for the world's most profitable combat sports promotion.

"That n***a needs to make up his mind," according to Mike Kogan.

Kogan is the manager for embattled UFC lightweight Nate Diaz, as of April 2013. Not long after, the wily Stockton slugger was suspended for calling Bryan Caraway "the biggest fag in the world." But hey, that's how they talk over there in the 209 and Kogan is no racist.

Here, he'll prove it to you.

By his own admission, Kogan "sucks as a manager."

Diaz (17-9) hasn't seen action since knocking out Gray Maynard at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18 Finale last November, embroiled in a bitter feud with UFC President Dana White, who will undoubtedly have something to say about this bizarre social media outburst in the coming days.

Stay tuned.
