Nick And Nate Diaz Caused The Biggest Brawl In MMA In 2010

Nick And Nate Diaz Caused The Biggest Brawl In MMA In 2010

The infamous brawl between Jason 'Mayhem' Miller and Jake Shields (with Nick and Nate Diaz) remains the biggest black eye on the sport's history.

Strikeforce: Nashville was marred by a post-fight brawl following the main-event. After Shields defeated Dan Henderson to retain his middleweight title, Miller somehow entered the cage and interrupted Shields' post-fight interview.

Miller had lost to Shields five months earlier and asked the champion: "What's up? "Where's my rematch, buddy?!"

"Ladies and Gentlemen, sometimes these things happen in MMA," announcer Gus Johnson infamously stated on the mic as bodies were flying around the cage.

"A lot of testosterone in the cage. Gentlemen, we're on national television!"

While play-by-play commentator Mauro Ranallo murmured: "This is ridiculous."

The event back in April 2010 is still etched in MMA history.
