Nate Diaz Slaps A Reporter Backstage At UFC 276

Nate Diaz wasn’t fighting at UFC 276 last night, at least not in the Octagon anyway, but in true Diaz brothers style he did get into a confrontation backstage that led to him dishing out some free Stockton slaps.

A reporter from Full Send MMA, ‘OG’ Shawny Mack attempted to interview Diaz, asking him if he was in the building to watch Sean O’Malley fight.

However, Diaz had other matters to discuss, appearing to be annoyed at the reporter for things he’d said on Twitter recently.

Diaz then proceeded to slap ‘OG’s’ mic away before also slapping the cap off his head for good measure, sending the reporter reeling backwards.

Some have suggested that the whole thing was staged, but you can judge for yourselves in the video below.
