Former UFC star Nate Diaz filmed choking out Logan Paul lookalike in shocking scenes

Former UFC star Nate Diaz filmed choking out Logan Paul lookalike in shocking scenes

Nate Diaz was watching teammate Chris Avila in action but ended up getting into a fight himself.

Former UFC star Nate Diaz choked out a Logan Paul lookalike in the middle of the street in shocking footage posted to social media.

Diaz submitted many opponents inside the Octagon, including rival Conor McGregor, prior to his departure from UFC following his win over Tony Ferguson.

And he left a member of the public unconscious in a melee in New Orleans on Friday night. Diaz was in attendance at Misfits Boxing 6 to watch teammate Chris Avila pick up an unanimous decision victory over Paul Bamba in the co-main event.

Diaz was originally sat ringside for the bout but ended up being removed from the arena after hurling a water bottle at reality TV star Chase DeMoor in a call-back to his UFC 202 press conference chaos with McGregor many years ago.

But Stockton fighter's eventful night did not stop there. Outside the arena in New Orleans, another fracas was going off and Diaz was obviously involved.

He was filmed giving a knee to 1-0 boxer Rodney Petersen, who bears resemblance to the elder Paul brother, before choking him out and leaving him motionless on the floor.

There's always fireworks when Diaz shows up and he might just have sent a message to his next opponent Jake Paul, who he meets inside the boxing ring on August 5 in Dallas.

In December 2021, Diaz was involved in a backstage brawl ahead of Paul's weigh-in with Tyron Woodley when he was supporting Avila ahead of his slugfest with Anthony Taylor.

Just under a year later, he courted controversy at the Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Arizona when he appeared to slap a member of Paul's team ahead of the Problem Child's win over Anderson Silva.

He ended up getting escorted out of the arena and Paul branded him a "b****" for his conduct.
