21 Humans Who Make Being Human Look Really, Really Hard

Six Reasons Nick Diaz Needs More Money

(Apparently, California’s hands-free law doesn’t apply to giving both fingers to a videocamera.)

By Jason Moles

For quite some time now Strikeforce Welterweight Champion Nick Diaz has complained at great length about how he wants more money. Apparently earning a cool $175,000 (not including sponsorships) for treating Paul Daley like a punching bag just isn’t enough.  Who could blame him though, what with gas prices topping over $4 a gallon? All kidding aside though (yeah, right!) here are the top six reasons Diaz needs to get some Mayweather money:

#1 – Hire a Personal Interviewer

As we’ve said in the past, Nick Diaz is the best/worst interview in the entire world.  However, after taking Dana’s advice about learning to play the game, Nick is going to have to hire his own private interviewer/translator. With a new found favor in the media’s heart, he’s sure to finally make bank. Warning to anyone who takes this job: Don’t start $%*#, won’t be $%*#!

#2 – Pay Exorbitant Amount of Money to Sponsors 

Although it may seem counter intuitive to ask for more money just so you can pay for someone else to do something, this is not the case.  Diaz will pay the UFC $100,000 just so he can have a logo slapped on his ass and get a lifetime supply of free rolling papers – something this Stockton native couldn’t possibly get enough of.

#3 – Good Lawyers Aren’t Cheap

Step 1: Jump innocent bystander. Step 2: Throw water bottle at same bystander’s head. Step 3: Profit? Yeah, we’re scratching our head too. Mayhem Miller got banned from CBS and Showtime for his part in the infamous Strikeforce Brawl — on national television no less, while Diaz continued his streak of dominance and retained his championship belt. Miller ends up on the bottom of a dog pile while getting curb stomped by the Scrap Pack and Diaz is the center of the most shared picture of the whole shebang. So how did Diaz avoid a more serious punishment? He called in a few favors. Unfortunately for him, if he doesn’t pay up soon, he’ll be making appearances at birthday parties and family reunions until he’s old enough for the Senior discount at Old Country Buffet.

#4 – Munchies 

Smoke, train, eat munchies, smoke, slap b*thches, smoke, train, smoke, eat munchies, practice mean-mug, smoke, and finally eat more munchies. Eventually it adds up.

#5 – Needs to Hire Steven Seagal

First it was Anderson Silva dropping Vitor Belfort like a sack of bricks with an thunderous kick to the face. Bet he didn’t expect that, bro. Then it was Lyoto Machidacrane kicking the dentures out of past his prime, washed up Grandpa Couture. How’s that saying go? “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”? OK, we get it. Grand Master Seagal is a badass that shouldn’t be #$@%&*! with and he’s the equivalent of a rabbit’s foot in your corner. If Nick wants to challenge himself and rake in some serious dough, he’ll need to solve the riddle that is GSP and his Superman punch. Only one man knows the answer.

#6 – A Bigger House

Forget what Scott Coker said, Nick wants a house that’s not in the 209. Who could blame him? Sometimes it’s just nice to not have to worry about getting shot up in a drive by or having your rims jacked while you’re sleeping after a hard training session down at Cesar’s. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to afford to pay someone else to cook your food and wash your laundry? Speaking of washing, we know just the guy to show you the ropes in the real estate market.

    I know this article is just supposed to be funny, but there should be some mention of the "retirement age" Nick is likely to face. Making 300K a year sounds like a lot, but not if your career is a whopping ten years long. I guess he could always open his own gym when he retires or something, but Nick doesn't strike me as the hearty entrepreneurial type.

    The army of Diaz nuthuggers over @ME aren't gonna like this one. I for one enjoyed the article thoroughly. I've always said if Diaz wants more $$ then he has to quit complaining, play the game, and give much better interviews. The big boys giving away the serious paper don't like the Nick Diaz brand. Its no wonder he isn't getting that "GSP money" and his biggest sponsors are Stockton Chev.

    "I guess he could always open his own gym when he retires or something, but Nick doesn’t strike me as the hearty entrepreneurial type." Hulk you are a fucking idiot, nice attempt at being cute and funny but you're still dumb and pathetic....Nick already opened his own cesar gracie gym in Lodi about 3 years ago.....Before you go saying something negative about someone you don't even follow or are a fan of, do a little research next time you fat piece of shit. come and read the website and forums for a little while before you start posting stupid bullshit like this and ruin my sunday morning. sorry cp, that was my rant, but real talk......this is what's wrong with mma fans. nobody knows what the fuck they are talking about and everyone is a critic. i come to cp for the articles, and i think ben is a good writer ( not as good as ben f but wuteva )these forums are tainted and filled with these douche-bags that are bandwagon fans of the sport and have no knowledge of what it takes to get in a fight, much less do it professionally in front of millions watching the fight

    Sun, 05/15/11 - 11:04

    @snicket916 I've been dangling from Diaz's nuts for much longer than you. Don't come in here with your talks of"this is what's wrong". Fuck you faggot. This isn't politics. Anyone can say anything about anyone here. That's why your opinion matters just as much as mine. I know the mma game and the players. Not everyone does. Instead of being a pompous douche-fag, maybe you could support other fans coming into the sport. Not everyone researches online while masturbating just to be the best little Internet debater. So smoke a bowl of some good bud and fucking enjoy this website for it's laid back approach. Otherwise, establish yourself with the others here and let's have a laugh at the little things. WAR DIAZ!! make that money homey!

    @ Perp and snicket - Fuck you both Nick Diaz is a homo!! Just kidding I've been hanging off Nate's nuts who's been hanging off of Nick's nuts way longer than either of you...and bye the bye, funny article but are you guys serious about that ZIGZAG shit? If so, and I don't want to get ahead of myself, but perchance Nick is fucking himself out of even more marketability?

    at anybody saying the short career balances out the amount of money being paid keep in mind that at 175k per fight, he could fight 4 times and make 700k w/out even considering sponsors. If we said that 50k was the salary the average person makes (it's actually less than 50k though) it would take 14 years to make what Diaz could theoretically make in one year. so if he fought 3 times a year for 3 years he could make 1.5 million. it would take the average person 31 years to make that much. Then if you take in to account that 1.5 million now is worth more than 1.5 mil spread out over 30 years (assuming you invested it with a rate of return of 8%) the money more than makes up for the short career for someone like him. But whatever, I've been hanging off his nuts longer than anybody ever so FUCK EVERYONE!

    Diaz = Validation of the cliche (if stupid)*(then better be tough) I don't know how many of your manage any of your own investments, I'm sure there is more than one of you; but if you do, then you know that this cat earns more than enough to live quite comfortably and set money aside for retirement. And that does not include money from his sponsors. He is getting paid what he is valued at in this market. If he wants more, he needs to make himself more valuable. And a dumb ass attitude is common; and therefor not valuable. Too bad because I love watching him fight. But I can't stand hearing him talk.

    Unbeknown to all of you, Nick makes a lot of his money from his company that puts spam ads on MMA web sites. And I know this because I've been hanging off his dad's nuts from before he was born.

    nick Diaz needs to learn that he is nothing but a middle of the pack nothing. Now that there is no more strikefare you wont see Nicky boy win another REAL fight. He needs to make up any excuse in the book not to fight, cause he is gonna get his pot smoking ass whipped by more than half the chumps in his weigh class. Better get use to 12k a fight DICK Diaz.

    @Drano is the most negative bitch on this whole website. If Nick Diaz is middle of the pack then the whole welterweight division is fucked. So drano, your theory is shit. Also I like how you A)have a booty buddy supporting your comments immeadietly or B)you created a name to support yourself. I have no clue which is worse, but I do see you were probably raised by 2 moms.
