What happened between Carrese Archer and Nate Diaz?

Both Carrese Archer and Nate Diaz were in attendance at the Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley 2 event. In a rather hilarious incident, Diaz feinted a punch at Archer, who flinched and spilled his drink in the process.

As the video of Archer spilling his drink went viral, he posted a video on his Instagram attacking Diaz. He claims that the UFC superstar isn't a real gangster as he tried to catch him off guard when the former wasn't paying attention. Archer also urged UFC president Dana White to give him a one-fight deal to fight Diaz. He said:

"Dana White, I seen you made a post and you laughed and you thought it was funny. I bet you won't think it's funny you sign me for one fight and I knock Nate Diaz the f**k out in the first round, guaranteed no cap."
