Another video showed a drink being thrown from Diaz’s direction. Seconds later, people who were dressed in suits charged at Diaz.
The former UFC star then went on Instagram Live where he filmed multiple security members ordering him and his team to leave the arena. It was posted just moments before Paul’s entrance for the main event.

Diaz was reportedly at the event to support his teammate and friend, Chris Avila, who defeated YouTuber Dr. Mike in the first bout of the main card.
Details about what started the altercation are unclear.
Diaz has been a free agent since his last fight at UFC 279. He has shown interest in taking on Paul and Paul reciprocated the challenge after he defeated Silva.
“Nate Diaz, stop being a b—- and fight me,” Paul said.
