UFC 266: Watch Nick Diaz walk out to Deftones for first fight in six years

UFC fighter – and Deftones fan – Nick Diaz walked out to Ceremony from the band’s latest album Ohms at UFC 266. Badass.

Nick Diaz returned to the octagon for the first time in six years at UFC 266 this weekend, and made a badass entrance soundtracked by Deftones’ Ceremony.

The Ohms single replaced Nick’s previous walkout song Feiticeira (from 2000’s White Pony), with the internet clearly extremely happy to hear that the fighting legend was repping Chino Moreno and co. – despite him then ultimately losing to Robbie Lawler in a five-round non-title fight on the night.

According to Sherdog, Nick wasn’t the only one showing his Deftones fandom at UFC 266 either, as Nick Maximov opted to walk out to Digital Bath. Nice!

Nick has shown a lot of love for Deftones on his Instagram in the past – including photos with the band:
