Diaz wins, McGregor rakes in cash

Nate Diaz's reaction to Conor McGregor's hefty betting win was as understated as expected. When told about McGregor's $1.1 million profit, Diaz simply said, “That’s cool.” This response came after Diaz notched a victory over Jorge Masvidal in their much-anticipated boxing rematch.

The fight itself was a display of stamina and skill, finally putting their previous UFC 244 encounter's controversial doctor stoppage to rest. McGregor had confidently placed a $500,000 bet on Diaz, showcasing not only his belief in Diaz's boxing prowess but also his flair for high stakes.


The match unfolded with both fighters delivering intense performances, reflecting their well-matched skills and determination. As the rounds progressed, Diaz’s ability to maintain pressure and volume began to tip the scales in his favor, leading to a majority decision that awarded him the win.

Meanwhile, Jorge Masvidal, who felt the decision was unfair, voiced his disagreement in a fiery post-fight interview. “I thought I won, I thought I hit the harder shots. He had more volume, but I thought I landed the harder shots,” Masvidal said. He’s ready for another showdown, adding, “All glory to Jesus Christ, I thought I won, I’m definitely down to do it again.”

The rivalry between these fighters is far from over, and fans can expect more fireworks in the future. What do you think about McGregor’s confidence in Diaz? Do you believe Diaz can take on Jake Paul and reclaim UFC gold?
