Just days after his brother Nate Diaz fought Conor McGregor in an epic fight, Nick, who is currently serving a 18-month ban for failing a post fight drug test, was involved in a very serious brawl at the Vegas hotspot. It begs the question, were his attackers out of their mind?!

It all kicked off when Nick accidentally bumped into another patron near the bathroom of the club. Nick immediately apologized, but the patron started shouting at the tough fighter, who was then jumped by three other men in a brutal beating.

According to TMZ, Nick was struck on the head while defending himself and the brawl broke out into the casino floor. Club security and casino security then jumped in to break up the fight as it spilled out of the nightclub.

“I didn’t start it. They didn’t know who I was,” Nick told TMZ on Aug. 24. He also added that he didn’t want to press any charges over the incident because his attackers “got the worst of it.” We bet! Nick did, however, suffer a gash to the top of his head.

So far, reps from Hyde have yet to comment on the incident. Police haven’t been called, and a report hasn’t been filed about the incident. It doesn’t look like this one will go anywhere.

And it seems that these attackers certainly bit off more than they could chew, and they must’ve really regretted starting a fight with a trained fighter like Nick. I mean, what were they thinking?
