Nick Diaz brother to Nate Diaz who just recently fought Conor McGregor at UFC 202 was involved in a massive brawl whilst partying the night away at Hyde Nightclub in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
The fight took place at around 2:30am in the restroom according to an onlooker at the club that night. The eye witness said: “All hell brook out when Nick accidentally bumped into a guy who was also out drinking, Nick, being the normally calm guy he is outside of the octagon apologized straight away, but this didn’t seem to do any good.”
“The guy became aggressive towards Nick, which everyone was shocked by, considering Nick is a MMA fighter, I’m not sure if this guy knew who Nick was, I don’t think he cared! The guy was then joined by 3 other guys, then out of nowhere, they all jumped Nick.”
“Nick was trying his best to defend himself Vs these 4 guys but he got hit over the head very hard and then the fight carried on out on the Bellagio casino floor.”
“The fight got so insane that chairs were being thrown about. Then the security stepped in to apprehend all of them, it took a while for the hotel’s security to escort everyone off the premises.”
Nick Diaz commented on the situation later on that day: “I didn’t start it. They didn’t know who I was.” Nick also said that he has no intention on pressing charges. Saying, “They got the worst of it.”
We will take Nick’s word for it, after hearing how Nick had his attackers in all different types of holds it sounds like Nick Diaz had control of the situation.
It was only about a year ago when Nick was involved in his last brawl outside of the octagon. Him and his brother were involved in a fight at a World Series of Fighting event. After seeing his brother Nate in a altercation with fellow UFC lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov, Nick jumped in. A massive fight broke out that ended up again on the casino floor the on the streets of Las Vegas.
Nick and his brother Nate were both subsequently banned from future World Series of Fighting events with the chairman saying, “They exchanged words and Nate threw a punch. I saw Nate throw a punch… I can’t have Nick and Nate come to a World Series of Fighting event again.”
This really hasn’t been Nick’s week, what with the pre-fight press conference ‘bottle throwing’ battle with Conor McGregor before UFC 202 Nick was banned from being in the arena along with all the members of the entourage. Only the cornermen were aloud to attend the fight.
But anyway, Nick wasn’t aloud to corner his brother Nate during the main event at UFC 202 because Nick is still serving suspension by the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) that will expire when he pays the remainder of the $100,000 fine ($75,000) for when he was suspended for 18 months for testing positive for marijuana back in 2015.
