Nate Diaz Pays Rent Money For Fan Who Bet It On Him
Massive props to UFC champ Nate Diaz, who has covered the rent of his fan who ended up betting the payment on one of his fights.
The fighter was up against Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244 a couple of weeks back at Madison Square Garden for the BMF title, with Masvidal bagging a controversial win due to two cuts on Diaz's face.
Not only was it a loss for Diaz, but it turned out to be for one fan who bet his rent money on him winning.
Taking to Instagram in reply to a post, user @unknownkillers213 wrote: "Nate I lost my rent money betting on you I'm sleeping in my car till I can come up with my half."
Captain Nate came straight to his rescue, replying to his comment: "don't trip I got your b***h*sss". Charming.
And the athlete stuck to his words, with the fan later posting a message to confirm he did get his money back.
"Update for everyone asking me, Yes Nate actually helped me out Nate is the true OG BMF he sent me more money than what I lost on my bet and I'm using it to buy from his cbd company 'Game Up'," he wrote.
"Nate is a really cool guy when I made that post I didn't think twice about it I didn't even think he would see it and I even let him know that I wasn't really sleeping in my car it was more of a joke but it was awesome the way he responded and the fact that he refunded me and gave me some extra cash just goes to show he is a man of the people !!!"
What an absolute hero. Especially since he originally wasn't even going to fight against Masvidal at UFC 244 due to 'tainted supplements'.
Taking to Twitter, he wrote: "I'm not gonna make it out to NYC for fight next week because they say I tested with elevated levels that they say might be from some tainted supplements.
"I call false on that cause I only take Whole Food or natural food supplements. I don't even eat meat.
"So until UFC, USADA or whoever is F***ING with me fixes it, I won't be competing. I'm not gonna play their game and try and hide it or keep quiet, as they suggested.
"I'm not gonna have my name tainted as a cheater like these other motherf***ers who keep quiet until after the fight just so that they can get paid. F***in cheaters.
"I don't give a f*** about some money over my dignity and my legacy. I'm not playing along with this bulls**t.
"I'm not staying quiet and figuring it out after the fight. That's cheating.
"So fight game I'll see you when I see you. Sincerely, the realest baddest motherf***er in the game."
