Sacramento Police are investigating an alleged assault incident involving UFC fighters Nate Diaz and Clay Guida from Friday at a Combate Americas event.

 

An officer took a misdemeanor battery report at the event, “Combate Americas: Mexico vs. USA,” at McClellan Conference Center in McClellan, Calif. Guida is listed as the alleged victim, with Diaz as the alleged suspect, according to MMAFighting.com.

I was talking face to face with Clay, he got pushed & I saw Nate & about ten other dudes so I stepped up with my arms out trying to descalate the situation & Nate then slapped me while one of his groupies rabbit punched me.

Diaz allegedly shoved Guida from behind without warning, sending him into a metal guardrail. Guida sustained a cut lip.

 

Guida's training partner Tyler Diamond also alleges Diaz slapped him when he stepped in to de-escalate the heated situation after the shove.

 

Diaz needs to keep his nose clean, considering he's in line for a big money fight with Georges St-Pierre.
