Morning Report: Nick Diaz Jumped By Multiple People Outside Las Vegas Club
MMA Fighting – Four days after his brother fought Conor McGregor at UFC 202, Nick Diaz had his own fight in Las Vegas, but his wasn’t against only one man.
According to TMZ Sports, the former UFC welterweight title challenger was jumped by four men outside a nightclub early Wednesday morning. Per reports, Diaz went to the bathroom outside the club Hyde in the Bellagio Casino around 2:30 a.m. and accidentally bumped into another man. Diaz said he apologized and that he didn’t want any trouble but the guy didn’t take it well and he and three others jumped Diaz.
“I didn’t start it,” Diaz told TMZ. “People like to hate.”
A rep spoke to TMZ confirming Diaz’s story, saying that Nick was not the aggressor in the incident and that the attackers were swinging chairs and fighting with club and casino employees.
When asked if the men were trying to fight him because of his notoriety as an MMA fighter, TMZ reported that Diaz did not believe the men knew who he was. Diaz also declined to press charges, noting that “They got the worst of it.”
Do you know how to win a street fight against a Diaz brother? You don’t!!! 209 isn’t just the area code they represent in Stockton, California; it is the number of guys it would take to have a legitimate shot at taking them down. Growing up, I would get into fisticuffs and the only thing I had to worry about was if the person knew karate or boxed at a local gym. Now, millions (that may be an exaggeration, but I am too lazy to get actual data) of people train in mixed martial arts and can end a fight by choking you unconscious with your own arm. You can’t just pick a fight with anybody because they could end up being Nick Diaz hanging out in a Vegas nightclub. I hope these guys learned a valuable lesson though…if the ears look funny, you better runny. I love how Nick Diaz whipped out his anaconda and kicked all those guys d’arce!!! That last sentence is funny if you understand MMA. If you don’t understand MMA, go back to thinking you can paralyze a person by pressing the right pressure point.
