Bruce Buffer Tells Nate Diaz To Bow Down To Dana White, Diaz Fires Back

Bruce Buffer And Nate Diaz Throwing Cold Water At Each Other

After UFC announced Khabib Nurmagomedov Vs Conor McGregor for the main event of UFC 229, Nate Diaz stormed out of the conference room. He is slated for the co-main event of UFC 230 versus Dustin Poirier. According to Stockton Slugger, that move was very disrespectful.

It is still unknown whether the fight between Diaz and Poirier will be held. Nate attacks UFC, but Dana White ignores him. UFC announcer Bruce Buffer shared his own thoughts. Bruce Buffer says Nate Diaz should be bowing to Dana White. (via

”I love Nate Diaz but he’s always got a bad taste in his mouth,” Buffer told TMZ in a recent video.

”Nate, I heard you made 7 or more million dollars in your last fight,” he continued. “I don’t want to hear you complaining about being under promoted by the UFC. You should be thanking the UFC and bowing to Dana White every time you see him. Ari Emanuel, Patrick Whitesell.”

”You got 7 or more million dollars gross before taxes, maybe much more. Which I love knowing that you have, Nate. Please, I don’t want to hear any more complaints.”

The Stockton Slugger was a real UFC golden goose a few years ago. UFC 202, the second clash between Diaz and McGregor, had the highest number of PPV (pay-per-view) buys – an impressive 1.65 million! UFC 196, Diaz Vs McGregor 1, was the second for a very long period of time with the score of 1.3 million PPVs!

Yet, Nate Diaz replied in his rebellious way! He says Bruce Buffer should “get off the UFC nuts”. Nate doesn’t plan to bow down to anybody. Money can’t change things!

Bruce Buffer said bowing is not the sign of a submission, but respect.

In his last four fights, Diaz had a score of 2-2. Nate Diaz missed weight for the UFC On Fox 13 co-main event on December 13, 2014, where he lost to Rafael dos Anjos. After a superb performance at UFC On Fox 17 on December 19, 2015, he defeated Michael Johnson via unanimous decision. He also won Fight Of The Night bonus. Stockton Slugger submitted Conor McGregor at UFC 196 on March 5, 2016. He earned many rewards for this showdown – Fight Of The Night, Performance Of The Night, and Submission Of The Year. Conor McGregor defeated Diaz at UFC 202 on August 20, 2016, via unanimous decision. Nate hasn’t fought since.

What are your thoughts? Is Bruce Buffer right? We hope Nate Diaz will face Dustin Poirier.
