Conor McGregor Could Get 6-Month Injury Suspension After UFC 202
Nick Diaz Reportedly Jumped By 4 Men in Las Vegas Casino
It looks like both Diaz brothers were in action this week.
According to TMZ, current suspended MMA star Nick Diaz was involved in an altercation outside of a Las Vegas club that spilled over into the Bellagio’s casino floor before it was broken up by security.
“A rep for the club tells us the UFC fighter went to a bathroom outside the club around 2:30 AM, and accidentally stumbled into another customer … who started talking smack. We’re told Nick apologized and said he didn’t want any trouble, but 3 other men then joined the first guy and jumped Nick.
Nick tells us, “I didn’t start it. They didn’t know who I was.”
He tried to defend himself, and got hit hard in the head — and then the fight spilled out of the bathroom, and out onto the Bellagio’s casino floor.
The melee was insane — the club’s rep says the attackers were swinging chairs and brawling with club and casino staffers. They were eventually removed by security.
Nick told the Bellagio he didn’t want to press charges, and told us, “They got the worst of it.””
If Nick says they got the worst of the fight, then they’re probably in ICU right now.
