The 36-year-old UFC star was caught on video by fans pretending to throw a punch at Carrese Archer as he walked past him.
Archer immediately flinched at Diaz’s reaction and his beer was sent flying through the air.
But security at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida, intervened and kept Archer and Diaz apart in a bid to prevent the situation from escalating.
Dana White was among those who later shared the video, with the UFC president tagging Diaz on Instagram.
Diaz attended the Paul vs Woodley fight to show his support for close pal and training partner Chris Avila, who defeated Anthony Taylor on the preliminary card.
Archer, who is a teammate of Bellator featherweight world champ AJ McKee, took to Instagram and called the Stockton Slugger a “bona fide female dog.”
Speaking in a video message, the man known as ‘One Punch’ said: “Hello, world, I see a lot of laughter. Everybody laughing, same thing, make you laugh, make you cry.
“Nate Diaz is a bona fide female dog. He has the security protecting him and you go flinch on me and try to sucker punch me when I am not paying attention and you all think this man is a gangster?
“I think the world is f****d up and confused around here. When they think about what is a real gangster. I am a real street dog. I'm in the streets, believe that.
“Anybody that knows me knows how One Punch rock it... Anyway, back to why I'm making this video, Dana White, I see you made a post and you laughed and you thought it was funny.
“I bet you won't think it's funny, you sign me for one fight and I knock Nate Diaz the f**k out in the first round.”
Diaz, who was defeated by Leon Edwards at UFC 263 back in June, was involved in a heated altercation with McKee at the weigh-in for the Paul vs Woodley fight.
McKee was at the weigh-in showing his support for Taylor, but Diaz was alleged to have thrown a water bottle at the Bellator champ’s entourage.
Paul defeated former UFC welterweight champ Woodley with a brutal knockout punch in the sixth round.
The 24-year-old YouTuber-turned-boxer called out UFC stars Diaz and Jorge Masvidal for leaving the arena and issued a challenge to both of them.
“Masvidal and Nate Diaz, y’all are some bitches for leaving this arena,” Paul said after the fight.
“Because I know you don't want that s**t. I’ll take out both of y’all next. Just get out of your contracts with daddy Dana [White] and I’mma f**k them up, too.
“Anyone, anytime, anyplace. It's every f*****g day, bro.”
