Miesha Tate Understands Why Nate Diaz Exploded At The UFC Press Conference Last Friday, a 25th-anniversary press conference was held by UFC in Los Angeles. The goal was the promotion of the new fights. The return of Nate Diaz should have been breaking news. Yet, Nate Diaz completely gone wild when UFC announced Khabib Nurmagomedov Vs Conor McGregor fight for the main event of UFC 229! He walked out of the conference. Later he even tweeted he won\u2019t fight Dustin Poirier! Miesha Tate stood by his side when she was speaking on Sirius XM Fight Nation this weekend. (via MMAFighting.com) \u201cI would feel the same way as Nate does,\u201d Tate said. \u201cNate has a different personality than I do, he\u2019s expressive in a different way, but of course . I remember when I threatened retirement because I was so pissed off that they had promised that I would fight Ronda and then they ended up switching that out and having Holly but they didn\u2019t tell me. It\u2019s the same thing that happened to Nate, essentially, it\u2019s just that Nate was in front of everybody. I was pissed too, believe me.\u201d Nate Diaz has already had many incidents with the UFC. Remember when he was asking $15 million for the next fight? Miesha Tate believes Nate could only stay away from fighting for a period of time. But she doubts it will make the situation better \u2013 UFC brings the final decision. \u201cI was mad but they don\u2019t care,\u201d Tate said. \u201cThey know that they have a strong arm in a lot of this and it doesn\u2019t really matter. Or if they do care, it\u2019s not enough. Like, \u2018I\u2019m sorry but this is what you have to do for business.\u2019 You can\u2019t really argue with them. They\u2019re the ones who are gonna make the final decision, so what can you do? What can Nate do? \u201cFor me it was a whirlwind of emotions, just trying to decide what I even wanted to do next because I felt like it was so unfair. Then it was just coming to terms with, \u2018Well, life\u2019s not fair. What do you want to do about it? Are you ready to retire now or not?\u2019 And the truth was I wasn\u2019t ready to retire at that time. Obviously I still went on to fight Jessica Eye after that and went on to win the title against Holly later, so I wasn\u2019t ready to retire but it was just the frustration.\u201d Diaz brothers were staying away from fighting in the past. It was their ultimate weapon to get better contracts. But Nate drops in rankings over and over. Miesha Tate has an alarming message for him. After all, he is not Conor McGregor to do whatever he wants. \u201cHaving a talk with Dana White helps but it still stings because he\u2019s not the one to have a filter on,\u201d Tate concluded. \u201cThe conversation was like, \u2018Yeah, but you\u2019re not Ronda Rousey.\u2019 \u201cIt\u2019s part of just recognizing that. I have a different value than Ronda and hers is what it is and mine is what it is so I have to continue to work to build mine even more. What else can I do? Get back to the grind. You just try to leverage yourself as much as you can but there\u2019s a point where you don\u2019t have the leverage. You don\u2019t have the final leverage, the UFC does.\u201d What do you think, is Miesha Tate right? Would you defend Nate Diaz? After all, he didn\u2019t fight for two years.
