Nate Diaz runs into John Travolta, unconfirmed reports his name was mangled soon after

Leave it to UFC bad boy Nate Diaz to just randomly run into actor John Travolta, but that's exactly what happened just days after the greatest name slaughtering in Oscar history took place.

Nate Diaz is famously known for his mean mug and gruff exterior when staring down an opponent, but there's no way he could resist the charm of John Travolta when the UFC lightweight recently ran into the actor after a training session.

The picture posted on Instagram by Layzie the Savage shows that Diaz and his crew ran into Travolta when leaving the gym, and the former Ultimate Fighter winner cracked a big smile standing next to Vincent Vega himself.

This picture was snapped just a day after Travolta's name flub up on the 2014 Oscars when he somehow turned award winning singer Idina Menzel's name into "Adele Dazeem".  Travolta says he was embarrassed about the mistake, but that hasn't stopped a name generator from popping up where you too can get 'Travoltified'.

Following the encounter, there were unconfirmed reports that after meeting Diaz, Travolta was heard saying he was really happy to take a picture with UCF fighter Neve Draw.
