MMA Fighting is also reporting that when Diaz allegedly shoved Guida into a metal guardrail, it split the fighters lip open and caused some bleeding.

Diamond also made the following statement to Fight Book MMA about the altercation:

“So I’ve already vaguely explained what happened on Twitter, but to detail: The show was almost over & as I was talking to Clay face to face, Nate & his crew moved in & Nate shoved Clay in the back. I immediately stepped forward & almost thought it was a joke at first but I tried deescalating the situation – getting in the middle & putting my arms out basically saying, “calm down” I then got slapped by Nate & punched by one of his groupies. There was about ten guys surrounding me. As soon as I got popped I put my hands up & shit started hitting the fan. Quickly him & his crew realized there was more than just a couple of us in the area so him & his groupies got outta there as quickly as they could.“

Guida and Diaz have met in the Octagon once before, with Guida picking up a split decision win at UFC 94.
