I think he's making a joke about the way the whole Melendez situation played out. Nate wants some of that Gil Money.

UFC doesn't want the public to know all the details are in contracts and what not. So Nate isn't going to go behind closed doors. Nate is putting them on blast for everyone to see/get involved in.

Diaz bros are much smarter than people realize. He is using social media to its full potential. Of course Dana isn't cutting Nate away. Nate probably doesn't even really want out. He is stirring the pot and seeing if he can score some of the meat that has gathered on the bottom.
I thought about that but that does not make all that much sense. He can first call Dana and talk about wanting to leave and then if wants he can still put out on twitter whatever he wants or even better do an interview. To start out on twitter asking out of his contract is simply just wanting attention and remain in the headlines. It does not make his hand any stronger. If anything Dana would probably just get annoyed and tell him to ******* leave if Nate was trying to threaten by letting him know "i can put everything out there". Dana dont give a ****. We already know fighters get paid shit. This aint no secret.

I don't see how this is smart at all. Gil's contract ended, hence the negotiation part. Diaz says he wants to get cut, not sign a better deal. Do we really think the UFC cuts him only to sign him back for more money?

Part of me wants the UFC to cut his ass, leaving him to sign with Bellator for whatever they offer him.

Something about Nate's demeanor makes me wonder if he's after the kind of money Melendez is getting
