Kvällssvepet: Diaz behöver ”minst 30 miljoner dollar” för en tredje McGregor-match

Tränaren anser att Nate Diaz måste få minst 20-30 miljoner dollar för en tredje match mot Conor McGregor.

Om Nate Diaz ska möta Conor McGregor härnäst, kommer UFC behöva ta fram den stora plånboken. I alla fall om man ska tro Diaz tränare Richard Perez.

Perez anser att Diaz, en före detta titelutmanare i lättvikt, förtjänar mycket mer pengar än tidigare om han ska möta McGregor igen.

Diaz är den enda som besegrat McGregor i UFC efter att Diaz strypte ut irländaren med en rear naked choke i mars förra året. McGregor fick sin revansch ett par månader senare på UFC 202 via delat domslut.

McGregor har redan nämnt Diaz som en potentiell motståndare för hans UFC-återkomst efter boxingsmatchen mot Floyd Mayweather, men matchen kommer att kosta mycket mer pengar för UFC än rivalernas två tidigare matcher.

“At least $20 million, $30 million,” sa Perez till Submission Radio om hur mycket Diaz borde få för en tredje match mot McGregor. ”UFC’s making a whole lot of money, a whole lot of money and they’re pocketing it. They’re giving more to McGregor, so it’s not fair because it takes two in that ring to draw a crowd — I mean, a good two fighters. It’s just like Mayweather when he fought [Andre] Berto. It was not even sold out at all. It was embarrassing. It’s because that guy couldn’t draw a crowd.”

”See, that’s what I’m saying, it’s the fighters that draw the crowd, and Nathan and McGregor, third one would be outstanding. Everyone knows that. So he needs to get paid at least $30 million easy.”

 

Diaz tjänade 2 miljoner dollar (ca 18 miljoner kr) för returmötet med McGregor i augusti förra året.

Richard Perez: ”En frisk Diaz slaktar McGregor”

Perez är fast besluten att hans elev förtjänar minst tio gånger mer pengar för en tredje match mot McGregor, han tror även att Diaz definitivt kommer att gå vinnande ur nästa möte med superstjärnan.

Diaz besegrade McGregor efter bara tio dagars förberedelse när de möttes första gången och skadade sig enligt rapporter innan returmötet. Det är därför Perez tror att en fullt frisk Diaz tar McGregor tämligen enkelt.

”If Nathan goes through training camp with no injuries, McGregor’s not gonna have a chance,” sa Perez. ”I’ll tell you that right now. If you watch some of the fights, like when Nathan fought [Donald] ”Cowboy” Cerrone and some other guys, he was in tip-top shape, he wasn’t injured or anything, he went out there and did it, he boxed them. And when he’s in tip-top shape, he can box. I mean, they think McGregor can box, Nathan can box. Right now in the last two fights he fought him, the first time was 11-day notice, so it wasn’t enough time but it was enough time to get a win. Second time he got injured so he had to lay back, so it put him back as far as being in shape and being accurate in timing. And people were thinking, “oh, he’s gonna come back and be better,” no, they don’t see the outcome of it, the true outcome of what happened. It’s like any fighter.

You know, like Pacquiao. He had a rotator cuff that was messed up. He fought Mayweather, it went the distance, but he lost and that’s what I’m saying. These guys are true warriors, they go out there and still fight. So as far as McGregor coming out in the cage if he fights Nathan and Nathan gets in shape, it should be a good fight, a great fight, because Nathan can move and he’s got great footwork and he can throw a lot of combinations and make McGregor miss, counter off of it, use his reach.”

Om Diaz verkligen vill ha 30 miljoner dollar (ca 230 miljoner kr), känns möjligheten att matchen blir av väldigt liten, men ingenting är omöjligt. McGregor lär också försöka förhandla om ett nytt kontrakt, i och med att han står att tjäna över 100 miljoner dollar (ca 790 miljoner kr) efter matchen mot Mayweather förra helgen.

Conor McGregors uttalande efter förlusten.

Just coming back around after a whirlwind couple of days. Thank you to all the fans for the support of the fight and the event! Without your support we as fighters are nothing so I thank you all! Thank you to my team of coaches and training partners! I had an amazing team and It truly was an amazing and enjoyable camp, and honestly I feel with just a little change in certain areas of the prep, we could have built the engine for 12 full rounds under stress, and got the better result on the night. Getting to 12 rounds alone in practice was always the challenge in this camp. We started slowly getting to the 12 and decreasing the stress in the rounds the closer it got to 12. I think for the time we had, 10 weeks in camp, it had to be done this way. If I began with a loaded 12 rounds under much stress I would have only hit a brick wall and lost progress as a result and potentially not made the fight. A little more time and we could have made the 12 cleanly, while under more stress, and made it thru the later rounds in the actual fight. I feel every decision we made at each given time was the correct decision, and I am proud of everyone of my team for what we done in the short time that we done it. 30 minutes was the longest I have fought in a ring or cage or anywhere. Surpassing my previous time of 25 minutes. I am happy for the experience and happy to take all these great lessons with me and implement them into my camp going forward. Another day another lesson! Congrats to Floyd on a well fought match. Very experienced and methodical in his work. I wish him well in retirement. He is a heck of a boxer. His experience, his patience and his endurance won him this fight hands down. I always told him he was not a fighter but a boxer. But sharing the ring with him he is certainly a solid fighter. Strong in the clinch. Great understanding of frames and head position. He has some very strong tools he could bring into an MMA game for sure. Here is a toast of whiskey to everyone involved in this event and everyone who enjoyed it! Thank you to you all! Onto the next one!

Trött på att höra hans tjat.

2013 var hon nog en av tidernas sämsta TUF-deltagare/UFC-fighters (hon fick en chans i UFC mot Raquel Pennington efter TUF 18). Nu är Roxanne Modafferi högst rankad i TUF 26, klart mycket bättre och segertippad för säsongen. Galet vad som kan hända på ett par år.

Grym match!

The Dragon is back!

Taggad till 100 för detta. Vore så galet kul att se Zebaztian Kadestam bli den första att besegra tråkmånsen.

2 more days until i take this for real 👊🏼
