Nate Diaz does whatever he wants. That couldn’t have been more evident at the UFC 241 open workouts earlier today (Wed. August 14, 2019) in California.

Diaz sparked up what looked to be like a joint on stage and smoked it. He then began passing it around to fans. Check out some footage below.

Diaz is undoubtedly a big supporter of CBD and marijuana. He famously smoked a vape pen following his UFC 202 war with Conor McGregor in 2016. That was the last fight he participated in, until this weekend, when he ends a near-three-year layoff. Diaz takes on Anthony “Showtime” Pettis in the co-main event of the UFC 241 pay-per-view (PPV).

It’s one of the most anticipated fights of the year and is arguably getting more hype than the heavyweight title main event. Daniel Cormier takes on the very man he took the heavyweight title from last year, Stipe Miocic. UFC 241 is one of the biggest cards of the year on paper.

But of course, with a name like Diaz taking on a longtime rival in a former champion, Pettis, it’s no surprise that it’s being dubbed as the people’s main event.
