Nate Diaz Career Earnings In UFC

Nate Diaz has racked up impressive career earnings in the UFC.

Diaz, 34, has been fighting in the UFC since 2007.

Over the course of the last 12 years, he has earned countless wins over some of the biggest names in the sport, including Conor McGregor, Anthony Pettis, Gray Maynard, Donald Cerrone, Jim Miller, Takanori Gomi and many more.

Despite some spats with Dana White and UFC brass over pay, Diaz has done very well for himself.

Thanks to his brash attitude and fierce realness, he has turned himself into a must-see attraction among fans.

With his most recent win over Pettis, Diaz cemented himself as one of the sport’s biggest stars – and his next payday will likely reflect that even more than his latest one did.

This is what Diaz’s career earnings look like so far.

Please keep in mind, these totals are only for what he has made in the UFC.

They also fail to account for things like the UFC’s very secretive bonuses that they do not announce to the public.

  1. Impressive for a guy who just took 3 years off. But let’s face it he has earned way more in undisclosed payments. Dude was set for life after the McGregor fights.
