Nick Diaz may be retired, but "The Stockton Slugger" still makes his presence felt at Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) events.

Johny Hendricks witnessed that first-hand earlier today (March 14, 2014) as he was the victim of Nick's heckling after he came in 1.5 pounds over the required welterweight limit during the pre-fight weigh-ins (video).

In this clip uploaded on UFC's Instagram account, Diaz can be seen clowning "Bigg Rigg" as he steps on the scales for a second time in an attempt to save his title dreams.

Fortunately for Hendricks, he hit the mark in his second go-round and kept his championship fight against "Ruthless" -- which is set to go down tomorrow night (March 15, 2014) at the American Airline Center in Dallas, Texas -- intact.

Diaz, meanwhile, recently hinted at a potential return to the Octagon; but, only if he receives an immediate title shot. While that's unlikely to happen, a potential fight between Diaz and Hendricks just got a bit more interesting.
