Dana White Reacts To Nate Diaz Lighting Up During UFC 241 Open Workout
It is formally a Nate Diaz battle week and during open exercises, he illuminated a blunt and smoked it. He then passed it to the audience for them to smoke.
Immediately, it captured the attention of UFC president, Dana White who reacted with a basic facepalm emoji.
This would not be the very first time White and Diaz have actually disagreed on specific things. Previously this week, the UFC manager did state he has an excellent relationship with him.
“It’s funny – I did this interview the other day about Nate,” White stated (by means of MMA Junkie). “Nate’s one of these guys that, he has this personality where it’s like he’s saying ‘(expletive) you’ to The Man, but he never says ‘(expletive) you’ to The Man. Every time I’m around Nate, he’s a good kid, and I’ve always had a good relationship with Nate, a personal relationship with Nate.”
But, that does not indicate he is difficult to handle.
“He’s tough to deal with on the business side, but personally he’s a good guy,” White stated. “And whatever you want to say about the Diaz brothers, when they say they’re gonna fight, they sign the bout agreement, and they show up and they fight. So I don’t see any problems.”
