Nick Diaz fan tattoo honors PRIDE submission win over Takanori Gomi

This man likes Nick Diaz. A lot.

You call yourself a Nick Diaz fan?

Step aside, Jack, as this dedicated soul has gone and one-upped you -- and every other Diaz fan this side of the western hemisphere -- thanks to his new tattoo that honors the former Strikeforce Welterweight Champion's 2007 submission win over Takanori Gomi under the PRIDE banner.

The victory was eventually overturned and ruled a "no contest" when Diaz tested positive for marijuana.

That's because PRIDE 33: "Second Coming" was held at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, and left its fighters under the scrutiny of the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).

Sound familiar?

That means his sensational second round gogoplata over "The Fireball Kid" went up in smoke, but can still be relived through the power of YouTube.

And this young man's zeal.

Confession time Maniacs ... who has ugly ink and why?
