Nate Diaz Says He Doesn’t Get Paid Enough To Stay At 155 Division

TUF winner and former UFC lightweight title challenger Nate Diaz recently expressed his desire to stay at welterweight, but the fight with Rory MacDonald is one that people point to as an example of him being undersized for the division.

“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.”
