It appears that the domestic violence case against UFC veteran Nick Diaz won’t be going away anytime soon, as the Clark County (Nevada) District Attorney’s Office has filed two more charges against the fighter according to MMA Junkie.
Those additional charges are an additional felony count of battery constituting domestic violence by strangulation and felony battery domestic violence resulting in substantial bodily harm. This brings the total charges against Diaz to four, with three being felony charges and the other being a misdemeanor.
Ross Goodman, who serves as Diaz’s attorney, issued the following statement to MMA Junkie about the new charges filed against his clinet.
“We were surprised that the state filed an amended complaint in court this morning given that there is no new evidence that would warrant adding charges. Regardless, we are confident that that truth will come to light vindicating Mr. Diaz after a thorough cross-examination exposing (the alleged victim’s) inconsistent and contradictory allegations.”
Diaz was arrested this past May for allegedly attacking an on again/off again girlfriend, whose name has yet to be released at this time. The victim in the case had suffered a myriad of injuries from the alleged attack by Diaz, including a potential broken hip, bruising on both legs, reddening on the neck and head, plus pain in the head.
