Nate Diaz Turned #UFCAustin Into #TheDiazShow

The UFC’s visit to Austin, Texas for UFC Fight Night 126 was stuffed with some smoking hot performances, but one the brightest sparks to the evening came when Fox Sports 1 camera panned into the crowd and captured the fighting pride of Stockton, California: Nate Diaz.

Following Derrick Lewis’ third-round knockout of Marcin Tybura in the co-main event, a raunchy post-fight interview by ‘The Black Beast’ forced the production team to scramble for something less blue to share with their audience. By placing Diaz in the viewfinder, there was a move into the green portion of the color wheel, which caused the Internet to glow. Instead of flashing the standard shadow boxing, smile, or thumbs up to the camera, Diaz whipped out a joint, placed it in his mouth, and gestured as though he was going to light it.
