Nate Diaz had a trouble-filled night Friday … he first chucked a water bottle at reality star Chase DeMoor and then choked a young man into unconsciousness in separate confrontations.
The UFC legend kicked off his wild night by attending the Misfits Boxing 6 event in New Orleans to watch Chris Avilla beat Paul Bamba in the main event.
While Diaz was enjoying the bout in the front row, he got into a heated argument with DeMoor, who was seated behind him. Video shows DeMoor heckling Diaz and calling him a “p…y.” Diaz then pitched the water bottle at DeMoor, and the two would have come to blows if onlookers hadn’t stepped between them.
Hours later, Diaz was filmed getting into a physical altercation with a young man on the sidewalk outside the venue. Nate puts the guy in a chokehold until his body goes limp and he falls to the ground unconscious. Diaz then casually walked away.
The extent of the man’s injuries were unknown, nor was it clear if he was taken to a hospital. It’s also not clear if police got involved.
Video of the assault has since gone viral. UFC boss Dana White and Conor McGregor both reacted on social media to the video with White noting that the man got knocked out by Diaz. McGregor simply laughed and egged on Diaz.
Diaz’s next bout is against Jake Paul. His last professional fight was in September 2022 when he won against Donald Ferguson at UFC 279
