According to WPLG Local 10 out of South Florida MMA and bare knuckle fighter Ulysses Diaz has been charged with battery after an alleged incident involving an online troll.

Police claim that Diaz took offence to something written about him online and decided to track down who was responsible. They further allege that Diaz went to the home of the online commentor and then punched him in the mouth.

Ulysses Diaz is 1-0 in pro MMA, his win coming in 2019 at a Titan FC event. He also has a 12-1 (10 KOs) pro boxing record. However, Diaz is most recognizable for his exploits in bare knuckle boxing.

Diaz joined BKFC in 2020, debuting with a stoppage win over Brian Maxwell. He won his next BKFC bout, versus Donelei Benedetto, with a 3-second KO.

That win earned Diaz a BKFC middleweight title fight versus former UFC title challenger Thiago Alves. However, Diaz would come up short, losing to Alves by third round doctor stoppage.

Diaz is also known for being the fiance of WWE star Dana Brooke.
