UFC star Nate Diaz appeared like he was about to smoke a joint during UFC Austin over the weekend in Texas.
Diaz was shown by the cameras watching the fights, and appeared to throw a blunt in his mouth as he grabbed a lighter.

What is pretty wild here is that he just openly pulled out the joint, with an unconfirmed substance in it, like it was no big deal. There were kids behind and people everywhere. He seemed like he could not have cared less.
It takes some serious balls to do that knowing that UFC fighters get drug tested all the time. It’s almost like he’s daring somebody to say something. You kind of have to love the middle finger mentality of Diaz. Now we’ll see if he gets hit with a “random” drug test.
