Nate Diaz openly smokes cannabis at UFC 263 press conference and Israel Adesanya can’t believe it

Nate Diaz has always walked to the beat of his own drum, and at UFC 263 he’s certainly making an impact again – this time smoking cannabis at the press conference.

The event takes place in Glendale, Arizona, where marijuana is legal for recreational use, and Diaz made the most of it.

UFC Vice President of Athlete Health and Performance Jeff Novitzky has confirmed that the Arizona State Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts Commission will adapt the rules for marijuana used in the UFC anti-doping program.

“Great job with the AZ Commission, which is adopting our testing schedule / rules for this weekend,” Novitzky tweeted ahead of UFC 263 in Arizona.

“The only problem with marijuana (THC) for Saturday fights is not showing up under the influence or under the influence. How it should be!

As you can imagine, Diaz was over the moon with these developments.

Meanwhile, middleweight champion Israel Adesanya couldn’t believe his nose once he smelled what Diaz was doing.

Stockton legend, who beat Conor McGregor, faces Briton Leon Edwards this weekend in a five-round contest.

Diaz lit a joint on stage at the fighters press conference and he couldn’t seem to be enjoying himself anymore.

Representatives for Diaz told MMA Fighting on Thursday that Kill_4209 is his own strain of marijuana, for those wondering.

“I think just like GSP (Georges St-Pierre) was doing his thing back then, I think he’s doing the same and has no love for it,” Diaz said about from Edwards.

“So I’m motivated to fight a worthy opponent and that’s what I’m here for. I come to win.
