Nate Diaz walks out on interview with CNBC


"Who gives a f*ck? What the f*ck is this the money channel?"

In another colorful and profane interview with Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz, the two UFC fighters promoted their upcoming fight at UFC 196 on CNBC on Friday.

After some early small talk, McGregor said he'll get paid Saturday night, revealing he'll "breeze past" the $10 million mark for the fight. Diaz wouldn't disclose his salary.

"The main thing to succeed in the game is to either be me or fight me. Everything else is peanuts," McGregor said.

Diaz looked annoyed throughout much of the questioning, but it was a question about how the UFC can compete with the NBA and the NHL that pushed the Stockton native past the breaking point.

Diaz responded, "next question," then took his mic off during the next question and walked off the set. Watch the exchange below.
