Strikeforce middleweight champion Nick Diaz told press during today’s media conference call,
“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 170-pounds. 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 f*cking shape and make weight like I do. It’s f*cking hard enough for me to make 170-pounds. He acts like he wouldn’t be able to do it, he doesn’t want to work hard like me, that’s the problem. He can work his ass off and make 170-pounds or 175-pounds or somebody can pay me a f*cking couple million dollars and I’ll move up to 185-pounds and fight him. Or he can quit getting f*cking slapped in public, I know somebody’s got that sh*t on video tape. That motherf*cker doesn’t want to fight me.”
You can’t blame Nick for wanting some more cash to jump up in weight. If this fight is going to happen, all three parties are going to have to bend a little to get it done.
