Before talking to UFC to make sure both fighters get paid like they should. Pretty gangster if you ask me.

Lol and what makes that gangster? Pettis will probably get paid better but there's no way in hell Diaz gets anywhere close to what he's been holding out for. Diaz finally folded and now he looks like an idiot for taking a completely random fight when he was only going for Conor or a title shot....and millions of dollars lol.

In the Ariel Helwani show Anthony Pettis made it very clear there is beef between him and Nate. 

As other's have asked....SOURCE is highly needed here as your claims seem to insinuate the exact opposite of what Anthony Pettis said himself as recently as yesterday.

I honestly believe Diaz is a bad matchup for Pettis. I see Pettis getting overwhelmed on the feet if nate is anywhere close to his best. Then he sets himself up perfectly for the conor fight.

Random fight? It’s almost free money!

Duke Rufus said this to Luke Thomas in their MMA Hour interview (Monday, May 13). First 1-2 minutes of the interview.

I don’t doubt that. The question is “what they should” means. Either making $500k/fight seems about right to me. They want to stay busy and fight 4 times, they’re bringing in $2m/year from fighting alone. That’s pretty good for where they’re at in their careers

Pettis made $145k to show for Wonderboy, a significantly tougher opponent. I’m sure a guaranteed $500k looks pretty damn good

According to Nate, he'll make 17 figures, but he's worth 19.

Pretty sure it’s five figures. Conor said Nate couldn’t count higher than five.

Nate is happy to be fighting a LW at WW. He's too small for legit welters as history has proven, but I think he'll be bigger, stronger, and in much better shape than ShowTime. 

 

The WonderBoy win was a fluke. That was much more an example of RoufusSport training TWood to fight WonderBoy for 2 separate 5 round fights. I'm sure ShowTime served as a WonderBoy clone as best he could for TWood's sparring prep and thus knew WonderBoy's style and tendencies much more WonderBoy knew ShowTime's. Pettis will get positively throttled the next time he faces a real 170er.

 

Flame away boys.

It wasn’t a wild exchange where both were just throwing hands and one landed. That would be a fluke. Throwing one very well aimed punch and the other guy completely not seeing it is a definition of a perfectly executed knock out. 

Having said that, wonderboy beats pettis 9/10.

This. Wasn’t lucky. Was a cool punch. But wonderboy was clearly better before that.

He is.

 

Long reach will pick Anthony apart until he folds in 3. People forget how good both Diaz brosb take shots. Anthony has nothing for him.

 

It will be get similar to Max fight but against a longer fighter.

The fluke was the fact that it was the 3rd time in about 2 years that Roufus trained a fighter for a 5 round fight Stephen. 

 

That won't happen again.
