Nate Diaz has never been afraid to throw down. The UFC ace just had his contract be extended by the UFC and is actively angling to fight Dustin Poirier. However – the latest scuffle he was involved with has nothing to do with the UFC.
Nate Diaz was present at the weigh ins of Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley 2 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Florida.
Diaz was there cornering another fighter – when a brawl broke out.
Diaz had reportedly come into conflict with Bellator featherweight champion AJ McKee and Paul’s sparring partner Anthony Taylor.

Conflict was very quickly diffused by the adept security team. Aj McKee is a close friend of Taylor’s and was there supporting him while Nate Diaz and Nick Maximov were in the house to support Chris Avila.
This conflict is a continuation – Nate Diaz is alleged to have tried to confront Taylor back in January.
“Long story short, pretty much I beat Chris Avila, I start showboating in the back room and Nate overheard it, he got mad, threw a water bottle and said, ‘We are going to jump you and beat your a**.’ Excuse my language… Nate ran up on me, he swung at me, he missed, I swung at him… I missed. Bellator staff had to break it up.”
