It’s been a pretty wild month for UFC fighter Nick Diaz. A little more than a week ago, he made headlines after he argued with a USADA agent over a drug test she was trying to administer to him and then invited her to smoke weed with him. Then, he made headlines again after he was involved in a crazy UFC 202 press conference that ended with Nick’s brother Nate and members of his entourage throwing bottles, cans, and an assortment of other things at Conor McGregor. And now, he's making headlines again for getting into a wild brawl at a nightclub in Las Vegas early Wednesday morning.
According to TMZ Sports, Nick was walking to a bathroom inside of the Hyde Nightclub in Vegas at around 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday when he accidentally bumped into a man who was with three other guys at the time. The men started arguing with Nick before they reportedly jumped him. "I didn’t start it," Nick told TMZ Sports. "They didn’t know who I was."
There’s no video of the fight—yet—but TMZ Sports is reporting that it escalated quickly and ended up turning into a full-fledged brawl within just a few moments. It started in the bathroom but spilled out into the Bellagio casino before long, and a representative for the club told TMZ Sports that the guys who attacked Nick ended up fighting with employees of the club and casino. Security guards eventually intervened and stopped the fight, but Nick told TMZ Sports he didn’t want to press any charges against the men.
"They got the worst of it," he said.
Sounds nuts. What else is this guy going to get himself involved in? He should think about chilling at home for a few nights.
