UFC fighter Nick Diaz has been making headlines this month for all sorts of wild sh-t. Last week, the welterweight almost-champion was all over the news for refusing a drug test from a USADA agent before inviting her to smoke weed with him.
He later resurfaced after getting involved in a wild UFC 202 press conference that ended with his brother and crew chucking bottles, cans, and a bunch of other things at Conor McGregor.
Now, he reportedly got into a huge brawl at a Las Vegas nightclub early Wednesday morning.
According to TMZ Sports, at around 2:30 a.m. Diaz was walking inside Hyde nightclub and accidentally bumped into a man, who with his three other friends, starting arguing with Nick before reportedly jumping him.
“I didn’t start it,” Nick told TMZ Sports. “They didn’t know who I was.”
A video of the fight has yet to surface, but TMZ Sports is reporting that the fight escalated into a huge brawl pretty quickly. It began in the bathroom—where Diaz was walking to before brushing shoulders with the man—and not before long, grew out into the Bellagio casino.
A representative for the club told TMZ Sports that the men who assaulted Nick also fought with workers at the club and casino. Eventually, security guards were able to put an end to the brawl.
“The melee was insane — the club’s rep says the attackers were swinging chairs and brawling with club and casino staffers. They were eventually removed by security,” TMZ reports, adding that he “was hittin’ them, putting them in different chokes. ”
Nick told the publication he doesn’t plan to press charges against the men. “They got the worst of it,” he said.
This is just wild. Nick Diaz needs to relax at home and smoke his vape pen before getting himself involved in any other crazy sh-t. Seriously.
