“I mean, I wasn’t going to walk out of there with something I wasn’t happy with,” Diaz said on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour. “So I just, you know, I was able to score a deal I can’t refuse. That’s how I look at it.

Pretty much after my first couple pro fights I wound up being the right guy for the job, so that’s why I’m still here, and I’ll fight the right fights if I have the opportunity.”
