Nate Diaz had an eventful Friday night, with the former UFC star caught on camera choking out a male individual in the New Orleans streets before leaving him flattened and unconscious.
Diaz, who attended the night’s Misfits Boxing 6, started a scuffle with Chase DeMoor, throwing a water bottle at him during the event. He later took to the streets and knocked another dude out cold.
The video below shows the guy walking up to Diaz before getting locked in a chokehold and kneed in the stomach. Strangely enough, the unfortunate victim looks a lot like Jake Paul’s brother Logan and could probably pass for a stunt double.
Diaz will make his professional boxing debut against Paul in Dallas, Texas on August 6 in a bout that will mark his first official physical encounter since he left UFC last September.
The eight-round fight will be undertaken at 185 pounds, with the combatants to wear 10-pound gloves. It comes about as a collaboration between Most Valuable Promotions, run by Paul, and Diaz’s Real Fight Inc.
This will be the first time Diaz fights outside UFC in over 15 years, as well as the first time he promotes himself. The 38-year-old has been involved in some of the biggest pay-per-view events ever hosted by the MMA promotion.
Paul, a YouTube sensation, has transitioned to boxing. He suffered his first loss against Tommy Fury earlier this year after six knockout wins.
