UFC 200: Conor McGregor wants UFC 'bums' to thank him for pay raise

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Longtime Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) veteran Nate Diaz made more money in one fight against Conor McGregor than he did in all of his previous fights combined. And to think he didn't even have the nerve to say "thanks" to his "Notorious" counterpart.

That makes him a "bum" according to the reigning featherweight kingpin.

I guess we should lump Jose Aldo in there, as well (because of this).

Diaz will have a chance to show his gratitude at the UFC 200 pay-per-view (PPV) on July 9 in Las Vegas, Nevada, though I can't help but wonder if it's McGregor who should be saying "thanks" for getting the chance to redeem himself after coming up lame at UFC 196.

Ahem ... Bobby, if you would please.

Not sure I would be waiting by the mailbox for a thank you card from these guys. Just saying.
