    Considering who he is, what he does and how he has done it, he could be pulling millions per fight like some others do, but he is fighting in a very weak division, dominating all of his opponents as if they were children. Ultimately you're only as good as the competition you've beaten in a sports environment.

    When's the last time MM fought someone that we weren't sure he'd beat?

    The Vegas odds had him at -1200 for this one. Those aren't competitive odds.

    But I wonder what % the fighter ends up with in the end after paying taxes, agent, and training expenses.

    It will be interesting how he looks against dilleshaw or someone else from the bantamweight division.

    Depends on how good his accountant is. In part, at least.

    He might be a journeyman but Diaz is tough as nails and is not a bad loss and he is a good win.

    Have to say as well fair play to Walt Harris stepping up on 4 hours notice to fight werdum. Yeah he lost quick but hey he took the chance respect for that

    The only reason he got that fight was mcgregor hand picked him as am easy fight after RDA pulled out loads of higher ranked guys wanted to fight him but he picked diaz for an easy win

    We will agree to disagree about McGregor then. I think he is a helluva fighter.

    Why would they let a guy with a visible staph infection fight? That still doesn’t compute.

    Lee hide it, he only disclosed it after the fight because he afraid his fight would be scrapped.
    And thank god it was the last fight, i can't imagine if it was the first fight, and the fighters who used the cage didn't shower properly afterward.

    Hid it? It was clearly visible. Rogan was commenting on it during the fight.

    Well in the fight he couldn't, but in an post fight interview he said he tried to hide it pre fight from ufc doctor.
    With hoping that in fight, the doctor would have had difficulties stopping the fight to inspect, like exactly what happened.
    Also when watching we might only speculate, because it might just a result of past staph infection that had been healed (just look at lawal).
