Close Friend to Nick Diaz Defends Him

Nick Diaz was arrested on the evening of May 24, facing several charges of domestic violence. Diaz was released from jail on the morning of May 26.

But one close friend of Diaz, Matt Staudt, took to Instagram and wrote a lengthy post where he defends the UFC fighter. Staudt claims that Diaz would not lay his hands on anyone unless it was in self-defense, and he called Diaz’s charges “fake news.” He further claims the female victim in question has been a major stalker to Diaz.
