The Ultimate Fighter is the UFC’s reality show in which professional mixed martial artists train and compete for a six-figure contract with the company. It gives us an inside view of a fighter’s life; how they behave, communicate, train, etc.

When you have a couple of young and hungry fighters under one roof, things are bound to go south at one point or another. TUF 5 featured two teams: Jens Pulver and BJ Penn. Nate Diaz and Cole Miller were on team Penn.

Cole Miller sends a message

Miller tried to deliver a message to Diaz, asking him to stop messing around while he was sleeping. Nope! He did not hand Diaz the letter. Instead, he ordered piñatas, wrote a message on a piece of paper, and stabbed a piñata—with a knife—along with the paper.

He also covered his bed with silly string and lathered his walls with whipped cream. When Nate arrived, he was shocked! The duo had a friendly scuffle inside and outside the villa. Nate got a hold of Miller and tossed him around, and applied whipped cream all over his face.

Nate Diaz gets his revenge

During the entire situation, Miller was laughing out loud. Nate, on the other hand, wanted an actual brawl. Both men then dumped each other’s beds in the swimming pool.

It seemed like the duo finally settled their beef. But Diaz was not done. He had other plans. At 3 in the morning, Nate dumped a bucket of cold water on Cole. His buddy, Manny Gamburyan joined him and put baby powder on Cole.

“Payback’s a b**ch” – Nate Diaz said.

Eventually, Diaz got the last laugh. He would go on to win the season and become one of the most famous personalities in the UFC. His last fight was against Jorge Masvidal; Diaz lost the fight in a controversial stoppage.
