Watch: Nate Diaz tries to light a joint on live UFC TV event

UFC star Nate Diaz was seen enjoying a recent live television event with the help of a good old-fashioned marijuana joint.

The 32-year-old fighter from Stockton was in the audience of a live UFC event held in Austin on Sunday, and began to light an expertly crafted joint right as the camera cut away.

Diaz and his jazz cigarette garnered applause from the crowd, which was televised on a live Fox Sports 1 broadcast.

Diaz is an outspoken advocate of cannabis use, and once used a CBD vape pen during a televised post-match interview after losing to Conor McGregor in 2016.

He hasn’t participated in a fight since then, and explained in a 2017 interview that he’s using the time off to smoke weed and “do whatever he wants.”
