Nate Diaz recalls the time he tried to buy a Cadillac and a house for $16,000
In 2007, Nate Diaz submitted Gray Maynard to win The Ultimate Fighter 5 and exclaimed "I’m rich" at the end.
The victory netted him roughly $16,000 and as Diaz explains to Andy Nesbitt in a Facebook Live interview, he wanted to use the proceeds to purchase a Cadillac for himself and a house for his mother.
