April 20 is gonna be lit in the Diaz household this year.
Now that Nate Diaz is about $1 million richer following his victory against Conor McGregor at UFC 196, there isn’t much in life he can’t buy. But money isn’t the only thing he got for winning. A trio of weed-centric companies have teamed up to make personalized bongs for Diaz and his brother, Nick (currently serving an 18-month suspension for allegedly testing positive for marijuana). Keep your flame-throwing Lambo, Mac – this is way better.
As you can probably expect, Diaz is pretty excited about it, too. He quickly posted a photo of the piece on Instagram once it was in his possession, along with a quick note: “Thanks to @joingreenrush @illadelphglass @thecavesmokeshop for the personalized bong.”
If you’re wondering why Diaz isn’t keeping his new present on the down low (or hey, maybe it’s just decorative!) it may have something to do with him smoking up with Cypress Hill’s B-Real backstage at the California Roots Festival last year. Or maybe it’s the Diaz brothers posting a meme of Nate choking out McGregor with the caption “Weed Beats Speed‘” on their Facebook page in the aftermath of UFC 196.
Either way, let’s just hope this doesn’t get him fined and suspended like his brother, because he can almost guarantee a visit from the Nevada Athletic Commission before UFC 200. The world needs a McGregor/Diaz rematch, Nate. Don’t screw this up.
