Nick Diaz launches verbal attack on Jason “Mayhem” Miller, targets GSP and Pacquaio money

Strikeforce welterweight champion, Nick Diaz has launched another verbal attack on bitter rival, Jason “Mayhem” Miller, saying he’d be happy to step up to 185 pounds to face him, as soon as he gets paid what he’s worth compared to the other top fighters in the mixed martial arts world.

Diaz, speaking via a conference call tonight, said:

“I’d be happy to move up, I’d like to get paid for it you know? I don’t like how people try to say that I didn’t accept the fight with (Jason) Miller because I was too small. I never said anything about that. I said if I’m going to go off track and screw with my whole season, it’s going to screw with my whole year, it’s going to screw with my capabilities of fighting at 170lbs. If I’m going to do that I’d like to get paid in full. I would like to have a reason for doing that. Not just do it at everybody else’s convenience.”

“I’d like to get paid something extra. Double, triple, something crazy for me to do something extra that would screw up my weight to fight at that weight. I’m not just doing it for free when I’d make the same money to fight at 170lbs. It’s twice as much work.”

“I never didn’t want to sign for that fight with Miller. They were talking about making me move weights. I said tell his ass to get in (expletive) shape and make weight like I do. It’s (expletive) hard enough for me to make 170lbs. He acts like he wouldn’t be able to do it, he doesn’t want to work hard like me, that’s the problem,” Diaz shouted.

“He can work his ass off and make 170lbs or 175lbs or somebody can pay me a (expletive) couple million dollars and I’ll move up to 185lbs and fight him. Or he can quit getting (expletive) slapped in public, I know somebody’s got that (expletive) on video tape. That mother (expletive) doesn’t want to fight me. Talking about he wants to fight me every chance he gets, he (expletive) told the media.”

“(Manny) Pacquaio’s making 40 (expletive) million dollars, GSP’s making a couple million dollars. I’m over here (expletive) driving a Honda and my (expletive) breaking down? (Expletive) all you mother (expletive). I’ll fight at 185lbs, I’d like to get paid.”
