Nate Diaz and Khabib Nurmagomedov were both cageside for UFC 239, and predictably, the pair got in a bit of a scuffle. Many in attendance in the arena have taken to social media about it, saying that Diaz got into it with both the lightweight champ and his manager Ali Abdelaziz before they got separated by security.

Diaz and Khabib has had multiple brawls in the past, making it weird that the UFC apparently put them in the same area tonight.

Check below for tweets from people in attendance. The clips on the altercation aren’t exactly on the best quality though.

Diaz recently stated that he’s “done” with 155 because he’s already slapped Khabib Nurmagomedov.

“I’m just done with the 155 thing. That’s in the past now,” Diaz said. “I think it’s time to start fighting at a more comfortable weight class. There’s nothing for me there, I already did everything, beat everybody.

“Khabib, I already slapped him in his face, I already told you guys that.”

I wonder if that was the case here again.
