Following a not so shocking loss to Rafael dos Anjos earlier this evening, lightweight fan favorite, Nate Diaz wasted no time in the after fight celebration. In a tweet posted originally from Instagram via the Sqor network, an image is shown of what appears to be a joint being smoked with the following text: P.o.w. and some fist and bicep emojis accompanying it.

Over the last few months, Diaz has voiced his frustration and anger about fighter pay (his own specifically), the Reebok uniform deal and most recently, the unusual signing of pro-wrestling superstar, CM Punk, so it's not out of character for him to make a post like this. However, it might be a tad bit soon to burn down all the bridges that lead back to the UFC. Tito Ortiz, Randy Couture and several other notable names have been through the revolving door to the organization despite heavy differences. It might be wise to err on the side of caution, just in case.
