Nick Diaz Says Hes Retired Unless The UFC Regenogiates His Contract

Former Strikeforce middleweight champion, Nick Diaz spoke this week about how if the UFC wants him to return to the octagon they are going to have to pay him $500,000 a fight.

Diaz, speaking via sources said:

“I never considered anything other than to renegotiate my contract or fight (champion) Johny Hendricks. All I said was, What am I getting paid? And he said, Let me check your contract. And the last text I got from him was what I would be fighting for. I didn’t consider fighting for that kind of money. I didn’t say anything back to him, right, but usually that means something. I’m not considering even for a second fighting any of those guys for less than $500,000. There’s no way.

“I’m retired. Completely retired. Unless the UFC wants to renegotiate for something I’m happy with or I’m going to be fighting for the world title, which is obviously going to be for something I’m happy with because I’ll make a ton of money. The UFC wants me to fight. The people want me to fight. I don’t want me to fight. So if we’re going to need me to fight, we’re going to have to work out the right deal.”
