Altercation with Khabib, Diaz at UFC 239

An incident involving UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and Nate Diaz seemed to occur in the crowd of UFC 239 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Video shows what appears to be Diaz having words with Nurmagomedov and flipping him off before what may have been Nurmagomedov stood up. Security quickly got between the two.

According to ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, nothing serious, including no arrests, came out of the confrontation. Nurmagomedov’s manager, Ali Abdelaziz, told Okamoto that Diaz taunted the Dagestani fighter and his camp.

This isn’t the first time the two have had a confrontation in the crowd of an MMA event. In 2015, Nurmagomedov got into a much more wild brawl with both Diaz brothers at a World Series of Fighting (now Professional Fighters League) event in 2015.
