Diaz was in Tampa, Fla. for the event to corner his teammate Chris Avila, who fought on the undercard and won a majority decision against Anthony Taylor. However, Diaz and crew left their mark on the event on more than one occasion throughout fight week.
At the ceremonial weigh-ins ahead of the event, Diaz’s crew got into a scuffle with Bellator featherweight champion A.J. McKee’s entourage, briefly halting the proceedings until everyone was separated and cooler heads prevailed.
On fight night, Diaz went viral for pretending to throw a punch at a man, who turned out to be a fellow MMA fighter, Carrese Archer.
Thursday evening, Diaz took to Instagram to deliver a message to Jake and Logan Paul in the caption of a photo of himself posing with two security guards.
“The Paul sisters hired this security team to make sure I wouldn’t get to them, like I was actually trying too,” Diaz wrote on Instagram. “But it’s all good with u guys I don’t take this fight thang with u2 serious. You guys playing boxing with wrestlers who can’t box or lil ass Floyd and that’s not cool bruh but it’s good.”
“I’m a real fighter from the real fight game so don’t trip so hard when you see me fellas let’s just be friends it’s good 💯.”
During his in-ring post-fight interview, Paul called out Diaz after knocking out Woodley, calling him and Jorge Masvidal “some b*tches” for leaving the arena early.
Diaz does not seem to be a fan of the Paul brothers’ approach to picking opponents and isn’t sold on his fighting ability, but apparently doesn’t see the need to have extra security present when they are in the same building.
