VIDEO | Nate Diaz gets into altercation with Clay Guida at Combate Americas event

Is it possible for Nate Diaz to be a spectator at a non-UFC event without getting into some sort of altercation? So far, it just doesn’t seem like it.

Everyone remembers the infamous Nashville brawl at Strikeforce: Nashville in 2010 when the Cesar Gracie camp broke out in a big post-fight brawl with Jason “Mayhem” Miller after their teammate Jake Shields’ win over Dan Henderson.

Then there was an apparent brief scuffle with Khabib Nurmagomedov a few years back at a World Series of Fighting event. But the outside the cage fun hasn’t stopped there for the Stockton striker…

Diaz was in attendance for Combate 20 in Sacramento, California last night supporting his teammate, Chris Avila. Also in attendance for one of their teammates was a former opponent of Diaz’, Clay Guida. Guida recently called out “bitch” Diaz for a rematch and perhaps that may have had something to do with what ended up happening.

Fellow Team Alpha Male teammate to Guida and current Ultimate Fighter season 17 contestant, Tyler Diamond was with Guida and detailed the incident on Twitter.

Nate Diaz just pushed Clay Guida from behind! & I ended up in the middle & he slapped me while his little entourage surround me. #209Bitches

You slap like a bitch @NateDiaz209!

He just pushed @clayguida who I was talking to & I got in the middle of it trying to descalate the situation & he slapped me & his entourage of ten dudes who knew he was going to do that tried jumping me.

I was talking face to face with Clay, he got pushed & I saw Nate & about ten other dudes so I stepped up with my arms out trying to descalate the situation & Nate then slapped me while one of his groupies rabbit punched me.

The first time that Diaz and Guida fought was all the way back in 2009 when Guida defeated Diaz by split decision. Since then, their careers have been quite rather different as Diaz has made attempts at welterweight while Guida at featherweight. But it’s safe to say that both have looked the best they ever have in their most recent outings.
