UFC legend and soon-to-be pro boxer Nate Diaz is wanted in New Orleans, Louisiana, after a scuffle outside a boxing event resulted in an altercation where Diaz reportedly choked a man unconscious.
Diaz is wanted on second-degree battery, according to Fox News, stemming from a Misfits Boxing event Diaz attended in support of a friend on April 21, 2023.
Police responded to a “large altercation” early the next morning, finding a man who appeared to be unconscious whom officers saw “bleeding from the rear of his head.”
“After investigation, an arrest warrant was issued for Nate Diaz,” according to police. “He has been charged with second-degree battery.”
A man appearing to be Diaz was seen on video standing in front of another man before the two engaged. Diaz then rendered the man unconscious with a standing guillotine choke.
