    The Diaz brothers have been long known in MMA circles for being advocates of marijuana, with the younger sibling being a catalyst for USADA implementing the “the Nate Diaz rule” and removing CBD from their prohibited list. Nate “made bank” based on what was initially deemed a somewhat controversial action, and now the UFC is also earning from a recently announced lucrative CBD sponsorship.

    “Did you see that CBD deal I got for the UFC? They got a huge deal,” Diaz told ESPN. “You’re welcome motherf—ers!”

    As much as I like Nate I can’t help but think that if he had a better attitude and played the game more strategically then he could have really reaped the rewards of ushering this in, instead of being on the outside looking in.

    then again if he wasn't who he is he wouldn't have gotten those Conor fights...we can't look at what ifs when the facts are he is set financially and never wavered on his beliefs or broke character and that alone is priceless..I get exactly what you're saying but you have to.look at from a different perspective and I respect nate more than if he played the good boy and did what the ufc wanted..

    He said in the interview with Ariel (who helped him promote his product proactively and gave him the platform to get it out there) that he has some cbd products which his company sells and Ariel asked him “do you want to promote your website nate?”
    Nate:
    “Yes”
    Ariel:
    “Go ahead, let us know what it is”
    Nate:
    “Yeah, umm, you know what? I don’t know the website address but.....”

    I see your point as well, but take RDA's foot injury out of the equation and where would that have left Nate? I respect how he sticks to his principles, but if Conor wanted to fight Uriah or Frankie instead of Nate at that time, Nate would still have his principles, but not the dolla-dolla-bills ya'll.
