Speaking to TMZ Sports, Bruce Buffer claimed that Nate Diaz should be “bowing” to UFC President Dana White.
“I love Nate, but he’s always got a bad taste in his mouth. Nate, I heard you made $7 (million) or more dollars on your last fight. I don’t want to hear you complaining about being underpromoted by the UFC.
“You should be thanking the UFC and bowing to Dana White every time you see him, (and) Ari Emmanuel, Patrick Whitesell. You’ve got $7 (million) or more dollars gross, before taxes, maybe much more – which I love knowing that you have, Nate. Please – I don’t want to hear any more.”
Nate Diaz quickly followed up with a heated response of his own over social media.
“Bruce Buffer wtf get off the Ufc nuts your bowing down right now tellling me to bow down? fuck that u keep bowing down.
I Bow down to no one ever for alll the money n the world…”
“With all do respect @brucebuffer”

“With all respect Nate that is not what I meant by saying the word ‘bow’, I meant it as a sign of respect as in when greeting someone, not a sign of submission as I’d never expect you to do that for anyone @NateDiaz209”
