"You know what? I've never paid taxes in my life. I'm probably going to go to jail.” – Nick Diaz UFC 158 Post-Fight Pess Conference March 19, 2013
Whoa, that was a bombshell. That was probably not the best thing to announce to a group of reporters. Diaz has long been known for his standoffish and cold demeanor towards the media so there’s a chance he’s just trolling everybody in the wake of the 25 minute beat down he received courtesy of Georges St. Pierre. Still, Diaz made a reported $200k for his fight against the champ in Montreal. You can be damn sure the tax man, both Canadian and American, will be looking for their fair share of his check. Diaz would be wise to square up with the IRS, squirrel away some dough for his post fighting days and quit violating the first rule of Goodfellas; “Always keep your mouth shut.” A word to wise, taxes brought down Al Capone… well that and syphilis.
