After the UFC 263 match that happened on Saturday, June 12, Nate Diaz’s face and body were covered with his own blood. Even though Diaz lost the match to Leon Edwards, he won many hearts with his splendid performance. Now his fans want to know what is his net worth.

Diaz slapped Edwards with a right and then came behind it with a straight left hand. It severely hurt Edwards, who stumbled back to the cage as the sellout crowd at Gila River Arena roared its approval and urged Diaz on. By the end of the match, Diaz could barely walk because his leg took a pounding from Edwards’ kicks. Edwards managed to hang on until the finish and pulled out a 49-46 decision on all three cards, remaining unbeaten in his last 10 fights. He’s 9-0 with a no-contest during that streak. But it seemed for everything he did, Diaz came out the winner even though he actually lost the fight.
