The Ultimate Fighter competitor Tyler Diamond spoke with TMZ Sports on Wednesday about an incident in which Nate Diaz slapped him last week.
Diamond said that he was attempting to diffuse a situation between his friend, Clay Guida, and a group of people who attended a Combate Americas event in Sacramento, California, with Diaz.
While Diamond said Diaz had roughly 10 people with him during the fracas, he noted that Diaz and his group retreated when they realized they were outnumbered.
Like Diamond, Diaz rose to prominence on The Ultimate Fighter when he won the fifth season of the show in 2007.
He has made a big name for himself since then, recording a professional record of 19-11 that includes a second-round submission win over Conor McGregor in March 2016.
