Nate Diaz isn’t a fan of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s shoe sponsorship deal with the UFC.
Last week, The Rock announced that his “Project Rock” shoes would be the official shoe of the UFC and will be worn by every UFC fighter during UFC events.

At the UFC 279 weigh-ins Diaz was forced to wear The Rock’s shoes and he wasn’t happy about it.
Diaz trashed the shoes during an interview with Megan Olivi “these shoes f’ing* suck” he blurted out while showing the shoes to the audience.

This will likely be Diaz’s last fight on his contract so he probably won’t have to wear the Project Rock shoes ever again after Saturday night.
