UFC: Clay Guida files police complaint for ‘alleged’ battery against Nate Diaz

The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department will be investigating an ‘alleged’ assault case against Nate Diaz after a scuffle broke out at a Combate Americas event, the past weekend. The complaint was filed by fellow UFC fighter Clay Guida.

The incident took place at Combate Americas “Mexico vs. USA” at the McClellan Conference Center in McClellan Park, California. 

The Scuffle

According to Guida’s manager John Fosco, Nate Diaz impromptu shoved an unassuming Clay Guida from the back – which sent him crashing into a nearby guardrail. He suffered a cut lip due to the impact. Clay Guida’s training partner at Team Alpha Male and a cast member on The Ultimate Fighter 27, Tyler Diamond, also blasted Nate Diaz for his involvement in the ‘alleged’ assault.

He went further and called Nate a *****.

Here is a fan-captured video of the ‘alleged’ scuffle.

A detective will now handle the case and the Sherriff’s department will open up the investigation, according to Sacramento sheriff spokesperson Sgt. Shaun Hampton.

“If it is found the victim was assaulted then a warrant request will be completed and submitted to the District Attorney’s office for review,” Hampton said.

“The filing decision will be up to the DA.”

The incident could have been instigated due a twitter call-out of Nate Diaz by Clay Guida.

Clay Guida and Nate Diaz have history between them. The pair fought back in 2009 at UFC 94, where Clay Guida won a split decision in a ‘fight of the night’ performance.
