Since becoming the UFC heavyweight champion, Francis Ngannou has spoken louder about getting paid more. On Sunday, The Predator posted a tweet to express its displeasure after YouTuber Logan Paul reportedly received a $ 20 million payday for a show boxing match with Floyd Mayweather Jr.
It’s crazy to think that Logan Paul (0-1) just made $ 20 million from a boxing show.
WHAT ARE WE DOING WRONG?

On the flip side, you have Nate Diaz, a UFC veteran who is finally getting his payday due and recognition. And based on how things worked out in his favor, the younger Diaz brother feels like he’s created a blueprint that his peers have yet to follow.
“What is he doing wrong? What is Francis Ngannou doing wrong? ”Diaz told Yahoo! Sports’s Kevin Iole in a recent interview. “I’ve done more right than any of these mothers for years. You should have spit out all that “I need money” shit a long time ago like I was.
“I’ve never been a champion and I said, ‘Fk you, drop me, let me crack some money.’ And what happened? My stock just went up anyway and no one jumped on it. Now they say, ‘What are we doing wrong?’ I say, ‘You should have listened to your daddy years ago, mother.’ All of you. The whole list.
“However, all are beginners. So this is what you set in motion. You probably won’t get a bag because you’ve loosened it so much. ”
After a year and a half on the sidelines, Diaz will make his UFC return this weekend at UFC 263 against the resounding Leon Edwards. It will be the UFC’s first five-round match without a headliner.
