UFC superstar Nick Diaz is now facing domestic battery charges following his arrest on Friday. Now a news outlet has come forward to report an individuals accusation concerning the case.
Nick Diaz was arrested by Las Vegas police on Friday, May 25. A total of 12 units were reported having being dispatched to the scene, with Diaz allegedly being combative with officers. The alleged female victim was transported to a local hospital following the incident.
The mixed martial arts veteran is now facing a felony charge of domestic battery by strangulation and a misdemeanor case of domestic battery. Diaz is being held at the Clark County Detention Center and is due back in court Saturday, May 26, at 9:00 A.M. Diaz’s bail has been set to $18,000.
Now TMZ Sports has reported that undisclosed sources connected to the case have come forward with information. The news source first claimed that the alleged female victim is accusing Diaz of choking her after using cocaine.
Undisclosed sources informed TMZ Sports that the two individuals have allegedly been in an “on-again, off-again sexual relationship” for years. The woman allegedly accused Diaz of slamming her to the ground in a Las Vegas home and choking her by the neck.
Matt Staudt, a close friend of Nick Diaz, has since come forward to claim that Diaz was wrongfully accused by an individual that has allegedly been stalking the fighter for many years. Check it out below:
“If it wasn’t clear, I’ve got this guys back if he needs me always and completely. One of the best people I know, and that’s the truth, he just plays by his rules, views the world very differently than most and has been fucked constantly. Seeing how everything evolved here infuriates me. The news is out so better to address than not, and for my own sake, not really on his behalf. I’ve seen drunk guys get in Nick’s face and avoid serious injury because he’s a martial artist and a killer but knows that and he’s passed the point of needing to prove it. He doesn’t even act tough to people…
“There is no scenario where Nick would put his hands on anyone unless it was necessary self-defense, and then watch the fuck out. Moving on, the girl who is accusing him is the most deranged and insane I’ve met to date. She has been obsessed with and stalked Nick for maybe 2 years now. Suicide attempts, calls to his family from fake numbers, thousand of calls a day – yes thousands, showing up everywhere he goes following his story… He changed his number to get away but Vegas is small and they crossed paths again.
“She left their interaction feeling some type of way yesterday and put in a fake report to get even and have him arrested which she’s threatened to do many times before as well. I can’t even fully digest this whole thing because of how insane and wrong it is. If Nick’s at fault it is because he has chosen again and again and again not to make a police report against her like I’ve advised profusely in the past when she has hit him or broke his phone or broke into his place or stolen things from him or threatened suicide, etc. Everyone is going to think what they think when they see the news so it’s very important for me to at least put something out that is actually factual.”
