Nick and Nate Diaz banned from all events due to the brawl with Khabib Nurmagomedov at WSOF 22
As we had reported earlier about the brawl between Diaz brothers and UFC Lightweight Superstar Khabib Nurmagomedov before Saturday's WSOF 22 event. A video of the incident was released, which shows Nate and Khabib exchanging words, and suddenly the former throws a punch and security intervenes to control the situation. But the whole thing fires up again as Nick Diaz throws a beer at Nurmagomedov.
And now it appears that the Diaz brothers have been imposed a lifetime ban from all the events due to their misconduct. WSOF Vice President Ali Abdel-Aziz who was on the scene when the incident happened said:
"I can't have Nick and Nate come to a World Series of Fighting event again. I like these guys, but if they're not going to show me respect coming to the show, how can I let them back in? You've just got to be more professional in MMA. Nate and Nick, all the times I talk to them, they're good guys, but they need to start making a (positive) impression. I know they sell better because they don't care, but you're going to make people not like you if you do stuff like that."
Below is a video which shows the brawl continuing at the Hotel bar at WSOF 22.
