Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul finally squared off against each other inside a boxing ring on June 6, with the match being many months in the making and fans were certainly hyped for it.
While Mayweather is slated to earn around $100 million, Logan Paul will earn anywhere between $5 million to $20 million, which is certainly an exorbitant amount of money in its own right.
UFC Heavyweight Champion Francis Ngannou previously reacted to both of them earning so much money and simply wondered just what UFC fighters were doing wrong to not be paid the same level of money.
While speaking to Yahoo’s Kevin Iole, UFC legend Nate Diaz was asked what he thought about Francis Ngannou’s comment. Diaz certainly didn’t mince any words as he put Ngannou and the rest of the UFC fighters on blast for never speaking up about being paid fairly by the promotion.
“What is he doing wrong? What is Francis Ngannou doing wrong? …should have listened to your daddy years ago, motherf******, years ago, all of you…
I’ve been doing more right than all the motherf****** for years and years, and they should have been spitting all that ‘I need money’ s*** a long time ago, like I was. I was never no champion, and I was saying f*** you, drop me, let me get some f****** money cracking, and what happened?
Their stock just raised anyway, and nobody was jumping on it…What are we doing wrong? We should have listened to your daddy years ago, motherf******, years ago, all of you, the whole roster, That’s you guys own problem that you ain’t getting no bag because of how bad you’ve been slacking…
One of the biggest complaints from UFC over the years is regarding the promotion not paying their fighters properly. Jon Jones, in particular, has demanded he get paid a proper amount of money to compete in big fights. Jake Paul has constantly called out Dana White over this fact. It is not known whether the UFC will rectify this and pay their fighters properly in the future.
