Nate Diaz and Brandon Moreno stole the show for all the right reasons at the UFC 263: Adesanya vs Vettori pre-fight press conference (watch it here).
Tensions were flaring at Thursday’s presser — which promoted the UFC 263 pay-per-view (PPV) at Gila River Arena in Glendale, Ariz., this weekend (Sat., June 12, 2021) — between Israel Adesanya vs. Marvin Vettori and Deiveson Figueiredo vs. Brandon Moreno. Even Leon Edwards had some confident words for his opponent (Diaz); however, Moreno and Diaz were more concerned with hanging out like bros.
Moreno could hardly contain his excitement, expressing that it was his first time meeting Diaz. The two bumped fists and fans loved every moment of it:

Apparently elsewhere during the presser, Diaz offered Moreno the joint he was smoking:
I believe Nate Diaz just offered Brandon Moreno some of what he is smoking. #UFC263— Marc Raimondi (@marc_raimondi) June 10, 2021
