The 37-year-old could be in line to earn a mega purse should he face off against 'The Problem Child' in the future.

But it will take some beating to surpass his payday at UFC 202 when he fought McGregor for a second time.

According to MMA Salaries, Diaz pocketed a whopping $5,170,000 in his epic war against the Irishman back in August 2016.
