A few weeks ago, I wrote about the so-called "Stockton Slap," a technique (of sorts) made famous by the Diaz brothers.

With Nate Diaz back in the spotlight again after a huge win over Featherweight champ Conor McGregor, the 209's Stockton Slap is all the rage right now. It's caught on with fans so much that EA Sports has even decided to add it to their UFC video game.

Take a look at real game footage of the slap in action:

You've got to love it... Northern California, stand up!

In addition to the slap, the latest UFC 2 update also included:
