UFC star Nate Diaz always does whatever he wants and he’s not afraid of the reaction he will receive. A lot of times, that includes being open about his marijuana use.
We’ve previously seen Diaz smoke CBD oil at a post-fight press conference, but nothing was as bold as his little stunt on Sunday night.
While sitting cageside at UFC Fight Night 126, the Stockton, Calif. native received a little cameo.
Once he realized he was on live television and on the jumbotron at Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas, Diaz flexed before the camera before grabbing a joint and lighter out of his pocket.
Diaz looked like he was about to spark up before the cameras quickly cut away.
But because this is the internet, the moment will live on forever and only add to the legacy of the Diaz brothers, who happen to have one of the biggest followings in all of mixed martial arts.

Never change, Nate Diaz.
While the moment was hilarious, perhaps the best part of the video is the reaction from the little kid and mom in the background when they realized Diaz was about to light up a joint.
We just want to know what happened after the cameras cut away.
In the main event of UFC Fight Night 126, fan favorite Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone went on to score a first-round TKO victory over Yancy Medeiros to cap off an action-packed night on a high note.
