MMA superstar Nate Diaz seemed to shine at UFC 270 in an awkward segment.
Diaz attended the event at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California to assist Brandon Moreno in his flyweight title defense against Deiveson Figueosystemo.
At some point, the camera focused on celebrities in the stands between fights and shifted to the American, who was sitting with his entourage.
The UFC star is holding a lighter and what looks like a joint in his mouth while the crowd screams at his presence.
The cameraman seemed to have realized how awkward the situation was and quickly cut off Mike Tyson, who was also present.
The 36-year-old openly smoked weed at a UFC event before he lit it during a press conference before his fight at UFC 263 with Leon Edwards, who defeated him.
UFC Vice President of Athlete Health and Performance Jeff Novitzky said the Arizona State Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts Commission will regulate the rules for marijuana used in the UFC’s anti-doping program.
Novitzky recently tweeted: “Great work with the AZ Commission who are adopting our test program/rules for this weekend.

“Only problem with cannabis (THC) for Saturday matches is not impaired or affected. How should it be! ”
Diaz watched Moreno give up his UFC flyweight belt to the Figuentico inside the Octagon.
In the end, the Brazilian tennis player defeated the Mexican with unanimous decisions 48-47, 48-47, 48-47.
