UFC legend Nate Diaz chokes a guy in the street after a brawl broke out at a Misfits boxing event
There are numerous reasons behind Nate Diaz’s popularity and the love he gets from fans. One of them is his super real and confrontational personality. Nate Diaz has probably competed in more fights outside of the ring than in his entire career as a professional fighter. Diaz added another brawl to that list when he was spotted choking a guy on a crowded New Orleans street.

Diaz was in Orleans with his team to watch training partner Chris Avila fight Paul Bamba in a Misfits boxing match at the XULA Convention Center. After the New Orleans event, Diaz abruptly ended someone’s night in the street after provoking a fight with reality TV star Chase DeMoor during the event by hurling a water bottle at him. The person who choked Diaz was Rodney Petersen, a popular social media user known for his resemblance to Logan Paul.
DeMoor, a Netflix reality star and former American football player, made his boxing debut earlier in the same event but was disqualified after punching his dejected opponent. He spoke about his scuffle with Diaz tweeted “Nate Diaz decided to get mad and throw a Prime bottle at me, that’s cute bro. Just don’t run next time. And stop spending your nights at the club trying to use your dried up MMA career to attract college girls while you’re in New Orleans.
In response to the viral video, UFC President Dana White humorously asked if the person who strangled Diaz was likely Logan Paul. Diaz “is going to get sued like a motherf-cker,” he continued. Even Diaz’s arch-rival Conor McGregor supported him, tweeting: “Hahaha Nate going wild tonight! Nate, let’s go! Hahaha.”
Who will Nate Diaz fight next?
Diaz, who was last seen in the UFC octagon in September 2022 where he fought and defeated Tony Ferguson and left the organization, will take on YouTuber-turned-pro boxer Jake Paul. Paul, coming off a split decision loss to Tommy Fury, will look to return to victory Colum with a win against a big name like Nate Diaz.
Diaz says of the fight: “Alongside Canelo he is the greatest in boxing, I’m here to beat that. I’m the king of martial arts and then I go back to get my UFC belts. I screwed Conor for playing, and now I’m back, like a Real Fight game superhero, the king of Real Fight game.”
