There is no question that Dana White is the big dog in the UFC, making huge decisions about both the future of the company and the future of its fighters. 

This is why a UFC fighter should never, ever hit or attack him, because it will not end well for you. 

Well, unless you are Nate Diaz that is, in which case Dana will willfully get slapped straight in the face for the sake of it. That is exactly what Nate did last week, and he uploaded it onto his Instagram account for everyone to see. Scroll down to view the video.

Stockton Slap

Diaz's social media game is very strong and he proved to be one of the UFC's best in that regard with his latest video. 

The controversial welterweight posted the video on his Instagram page last week, showing him hitting White, the UFC's President, with a 'Stockton Slap'. And Diaz did not hold back.

Getting Deals Done

"Getting deals done today #immagetmymoney #stocktonslapped #ufc @representltd #100," the status going along with the video read.

Amazingly, the short clip is set to 'Hit Em Up' by West Coast rap legend Tupac Shakur, featuring the Outlawz. Fitting for Diaz, who is a proud California native. 

The relationship between White and Diaz had been strained lately, as a previous meeting between the two had apparently ended very badly.

The two sides have been trying to work on a rematch between Diaz and Conor McGregor, the UFC's biggest star who was beaten by Nate at UFC 196 earlier this year, making the Irishman tap in the middle of the octagon for his first loss in the promotion.

Fight Negotiations

That fight between McGregor and Diaz was one of the biggest selling in UFC history, making so much money, and its rematch at UFC 202 later this year is expected to break the record currently held by UFC 100: Lesnar vs Mir.

Because of the amount of interest in the fight, Diaz - rightly or wrongly - felt that he now deserved to be treated like a bigger star than he was before the first bout, asking for more money in the negotiations for the rematch.

It would honestly surprise no one if him getting to record himself slapping Dana was one of his requests as part of the deal to make the fight. If he isn't going to get paid as much as Conor, which would never happen, then at least he can come away from the table with something else, something that could humiliate Dana.
