In what might be their best trash talking segment yet leading up to tomorrow’s UFC 196, Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz took to CNBC on Friday for an interview with correspondent Jane Wells. As you can probably guess, talking finances with two UFC fighters itching to beat each others asses isn’t exactly the easiest thing in the world. Especially since it seemed like the two were seated in the very same room together.
Several times over, McGregor absolutely dropped the Hammer on Diaz – who was quiet, reserved, and quite honestly awkward through the whole segment – saying things such as “get my coffee,” and touting how much more money he is set to rake in on Saturday night in Vegas.
Just how much, you ask? McGregor stated, “I’m going to breeze past the $10 million mark.” Damn.
The entire interview (below), which ended with Diaz removing his mic and walking off camera, is definitely worth a watch. At one point, McGregor tells Wells, “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?” when the CNBC anchor inquired about the Irishman’s net worth.

Can’t it just be 10:00pm tomorrow already? The anticipation is killer.
