Midnight Mania! New Footage Leaks Of Beer-Soaked Diaz Vs. Paul Scuffle

MMA news

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

“Let’s go, we won.”

As is often the case, Team Nate Diaz instigated a bit of chaos at a public event last weekend. The Jake Paul vs. Anderson Silva boxing event was scene of the latest scuffle Diaz and his camp have started, and per usual, Diaz walked off claiming himself the victor.

New footage released by YouTuber Amacky of the conflict is can be seen above (H/T MMAJunkie). The footage shows much of the lead up and aftermath of the previously released footage, and more of the members of either camp are identifiable. The Diaz side includes recently released UFC fight Nick Maximov, fresh-off-a-win Chris Avila, and MMA prospect Luciano Ramos.

Of course, there’s also Nate Diaz himself, and all are trading insults with Paul’s crew. Meanwhile, Jake Paul himself was in the process of warming up for Anderson Silva, so he was not present.

After the initial confrontation, a large bodyguard from Paul’s camp gets beamed by a water bottle thrown by Diaz. As that body guard and another close the gap and are held back, a beer credited to Nick Maximov soaks over the pair. Diaz claims victory, Jake Paul calls him out after beating Anderson Silva, and he doesn’t even get arrested for his actions!

Is the whole affair genius strategy from Diaz to build up another high-profile payday or simply trashy behavior from the free agent?

Zhang Weili is the best athlete at 115 pounds, and I don’t think it’s particularly close.

Would you rather see Sean O’Malley vs. Henry Cejudo or Marlon Vera for a completely unnecessary — and thus very possible — interim belt?

A nice highlight demonstrating a cool little detail in Arnold Allen’s defense.

I would consider the below fight announcement more of a rumor than confirmation, but I like the match up!
