When it comes to hyping a title fight for UFC, there’s clearly no better place than CNBC. That’s why anchor Jane Wells welcomed Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz to talk a bit about their fight on Saturday night, but only from a financial perspective. This is something that clearly didn’t sit well with Diaz from the start of the interview, but Wells soldiered on and traversed the odd chat with the fighters.
McGregor seemed to be a natural during the interview, trash talking Diaz, discussing how much money the fight will earn, and dropping idle “threats” when Wells inquires how much McGregor is actually worth:
“There’s people buried in the desert for less than that. You must think I trust you with these kind of things. How much are you worth?”
