Jon Anik keeps promise, gets 209 tattoo after Nate Diaz's win over Conor McGregor

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Jon Anik made good.

The UFC play-by-play man now infamously bet his podcast and broadcast partner Kenny Florian that he would get a 209 tattoo if Nate Diaz managed to defeat Conor McGregor at UFC 196. He did Thursday -- and posted a photo on Instagram.

The number 209 is the area code of Stockton, Calif., the home of the Diaz brothers and has has been kind of a calling card.

The bet became the object of scorn from the Diaz camp. Diaz tweeted about it during fight week and McGregor mentioned Anik during the pre-fight press conference.

"F*ck you and f*ck Jon Anik," Diaz replied.

Of course, Diaz ended up beating McGregor, to the shock of many, via second-round submission. Diaz, in true Diaz fashion, closed the press conference with another shot at Anik.

"Yo, yo!" Diaz said. "Jon Anik better get a mother*cking 209 tattoo or I'm gonna whoop his little ass."
