Shout out to Josh Neer!
Thanks to his second-round submission win over Conor McGregor at the UFC 196 pay-per-view (PPV) event earlier this year in Las Vegas, Nevada, Nate Diaz has assumed top billing for their welterweight rematch at UFC 202, recently announced for Aug. 20, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada (more on that here).
But that doesn’t mean every interview opportunity has to focus on “Notorious.”
Especially when he can talk about pimping out his ride and the legendary Jean-Claude Van Damme, as well as his disdain for training camps. And like most young folks, finding out that $16,000 does not make you rich can be very, very depressing.
He’ll make a lot more than that for UFC 202.
The duet were originally expected to headline UFC 200; however, McGregor threw a monkey wrench into those plans. Jon Jones took over as event headliner; albeit temporarily, before joining Brock Lesnar in the not-so-distinguished USADA club.
What a crazy month.
