Default Diaz earns "substantially" more than $40K, calling out Jones Jr.

http://mmajunkie.com/news/14593/repo...-jones-jr-.mma

Quote:
Since figures were released by the CSAC on fighters pay from the Strikeforce event, we have received several inquiries and comments on Nick's pay.
We would like to let Nick's fans know that his compensation for the event was actually substantially larger than the amount listed, due to the way his contract was structured.
Nick Diaz and Strikeforce have in place a fair compensation agreement.

Superstar boxer Roy Jones Jr. has expressed interest in facing UFC Middleweight Champion, Anderson Silva,
after Silva had let his intentions be known that he wished to face Jones in a boxing contest.
Promoter Bob Arum was eager to promote such a bout to let the world see that "those MMA guys can't throw a straight punch".

Unfortunately it seems the impedus to set up such a fight is dead in the water, since the UFC is no hurry to see their Champion compete in a venue not being promoted by them.

Enter Nick Diaz. With Strikeforce's more flexible attitudes towards fighting and the Strikeforce-Showtime alliance, the barriers to such a fight could very well be coming down.
Our camp has already contacted Top Rank Boxing to let them know we would be 100% in favor of such a matchup. Now the ball is in their court.
Glad to hear he got paif more... but taking on RJJ in a boxing match? Ehhh
