The UFC, however, went another way and decided to book the “BMF” title fight between Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal to headline the annual Madison Square Garden card.

    "I read ‘Art of the Deal’ from Donald Trump. I know how to work a deal and how deals work."

    LOL. Someone tell him he didn't write the book.....
    Funny though, I thought he & Daner were TrumpBuddies.




    That said, I think they're trying the same tactic with Ferguson. "If Tony Ferguson doesn't accept the offer, Conor is next for Khabib" or something similar that Bald Lying Ass Face said. Trying to not pay so he has driveway snow money and side chicks.

    "They come and say ‘take this offer or we’ll just move onto the next person’. That’s not how negotiating works. I read ‘Art of the Deal’ from Donald Trump. I know how to work a deal and how deals work."

    Jorge Masvidal: 'I'm Getting Paid Not Played' At UFC244 - MiddleEasy.com

    If he's a pawn he's a very happy pawn getting paid "in the millions" - headlining with PPV points.
