UFC Lightweight Nate Diaz showed that the pen is mightier than the sword when it comes to self promotion. At the media day for UFC on Fox: Dos Anjos vs. Cerrone 2, the Stockton native took it upon himself to change the official event poster.
Diaz was not happy with his exclusion from the event poster, telling MMAFighting’s Ariel Helwani, “Yeah where the f**k is my picture at?”
In the video above, Nate Diaz shows off his artistic side, drawing a stick figure of himself. He also lists his accolaids alongside the self portrait, proclaiming himself as The Real Champ” and writing “Nate Diaz #1”.
Nate Diaz is currently ranked #15 in the UFC Lightweight division. He takes on the #6 ranked Michael Johnson this week at UFC on Fox in Orlando, Florida.
It will be Diaz’s first fight since losing to Rafael dos Anjos last December at UFC on Fox: dos Santos vs. Miocic. Diaz is 1-3 in his past four fights, with his most recent win being a TKO victory over Gray Maynard in 2013.
