UFC Commentator Jon Anik Gets 209 Tattoo After Diaz Defeated McGregor
Jon Anik kept his word and has the tattoo to prove it!
Commentator Jon Anik promised to get a tattoo if Nate Diaz defeated Conor McGregor, and as promised he did just that!
UFC commentator Jon Anik was so confident that Conor McGregor would beat Nate Diaz that he put a tattoo on the line. While hosting the Anik-Florian podcast Anik bet co-host and retired UFC fighter Kenny Florian that he would get a '209' tattoo if Diaz defeated the 'Notorious' McGregor.
It's safe to assume then that Anik had more concern than most when Diaz scored a second round victory over the Irishman via rear-naked choke, but true to his word he got the tattoo!
For those wondering '209' is the area code of Stockton, California, Diaz's hometown and has become a symbol of Diaz's image. Going into the fight Diaz was well aware of Anik's bet and made his feelings on the matter pretty clear over Twitter after McGregor brought up Anik in a pre-fight conference; "F*ck you and f*ck Jon Anik,".

Even after the fight had finished and Diaz was crowned the victor Anik wasn't far from his thoughts, closing a post-fight press conference with a message for the commentator; "Jon Anik better get a mother*cking 209 tattoo or I'm gonna whoop his little ass."
Thankfully for Anik by going through with his word he's avoided the wrath of Diaz with the fighter re-tweeting Anik's tattoo post accompanied with the words "Jon Anik reppin the town now". Ass-whooping avoided and new tattoo to show for it - it's been a big week for Anik!
