April 20th is right around the corner, better known to weed aficionados as 4/20. You better believe there’s some serious overlap in the Venn diagram of combat sports fans and pot smokers, and for once it looks like the UFC is doing something fun as a little hat tip to you all.
According to the UFC Fight Pass Twitter account, the 24/7 stream will feature several hours of marijuana friendly programming starting late late Friday night. The somewhat controversial Snoopcast versions of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series will kick things off at 1:53AM and run for the next three and a half hours.
Hey! Hey! Hey! Heeey! We know it's three days away but we're planting the seed now for a sublime Saturday on #UFCFIGHTPASS.— UFC FIGHT PASS (@UFCFightPass) April 18, 2019

After that it’s a suspension double header featuring the best of Cynthia Calvillo and Kelvin Gastelum. Both fighters were punished for still having Carboxy-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in their system during the narrow in-competition window. That runs from 5:30AM to 9AM.
Then it’s on to the heavy hitters of the UFC weedweight division. At 9AM they air The Best of Sean O’Malley and then it’s The Best of Nate and Nick Diaz. We’re not sure exactly when the Diaz Brothers portion ends, but we’re confident you won’t have to wait long until 4:20PM.
