Just Diaz brothers being Diaz brothers…
Seconds before buddy Jake Shields was to challenge World Series of Fighting welterweight champion Rousimar Palhares for his title at WSOF 22, Nick (pictured) and Nate Diaz got into a scuffle with fellow UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The video shows Nick throwing a drink at Nurmagomedov as they were being separated. According to MMAFighting.com reporter Shaheen Al-Shatti, punches may have been thrown by both fighters before the camera started rolling.
All I can say is, let’s just hope Nick didn’t throw a beer because that is just wasteful…
As far as the most important fight at WSOF 22 that will likely get no attention thanks to this rumble, Palhares resumed his dirty ways by continuing to crank on a kimura well after Shields tapped.
Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada was the scene of the crime.
