Former WEC and Strikeforce champion Nick Diaz was cleared of all charges concerning his recent domestic violence case on Thursday. Now the UFC veteran has come forward with a statement. Nick Diaz was facing domestic violence charges after being arrested earlier this year for a police report filed by female individual. Nick Diaz's friend Matt Staudt would later take to social media to offer his opinion on the alleged incident, claiming the police report was filed by a stalker of Nick Diaz. "If it wasn\u2019t clear, I\u2019ve got this guys back if he needs me always and completely. One of the best people I know, and that\u2019s 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\u2019ve seen drunk guys get in Nick\u2019s face and avoid serious injury because he\u2019s a martial artist and a killer but knows that and he\u2019s passed the point of needing to prove it. He doesn\u2019t 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\u2019ve 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\u2019s threatened to do many times before as well. "I can\u2019t even fully digest this whole thing because of how insane and wrong it is. If Nick\u2019s at fault it is because he has chosen again and again and again not to make a police report against her like I\u2019ve 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\u2019s very important for me to at least put something out that is actually factual. #fakenews" https:\/\/www.instagram.com\/p\/BjNoBCyBhTV\/?utm_sourceig_embed However, it was announced on Thursday that all charges against Nick Diaz have been dropped and the case has been dismissed. Taking to Instagram Live, the talented mixed martial artist has since decided to offer a statement. Check it out below. "I\u2019m grateful this case is finally over, I want to thank my team and my lawyer Ross Goodman for the excellent work. But most importantly, I want to thank the fans who stuck by me throughout this process. I\u2019m happy to put this chapter of my life behind me and I\u2019m looking forward to focusing on my return."
