How many times do we need to tell you to leave Nick Diaz and Nate Diaz alone? Fortunately, a confrontation involving the elder Diaz brother petered out on the Vegas strip this week without any violence. Recent footage appears to show that Nick Diaz got into a minor fender bender outside the Bellagio casino and then exchanged some words with the other driver.

According to Instagram account mmapack, Diaz and a California based singer got into it after their cars collided outside the Bellagio.

The short video shows Diaz and the unnamed singer exchanging words that veer towards threatening at one point. The singer seems to be telling Diaz he doesn’t want to fight him and it’s unclear if Diaz ever suggested such a thing. The pair argue over what Diaz said and whether “what do you want to do?” or “do you want some?” constituted as fighting words.

Regardless what was said, though, we can breathe a sigh of relief that there was no blood or broken bones or warrants issued.

Nate Diaz wasn’t so lucky in New Orleans

Nick Diaz’s younger brother Nate Diaz also got into a confrontation recently. A few weeks ago, after the Misfits Boxing card in New Orleans, Diaz was backed into a corner by a mob who seemed to be aligned with cross-over boxer/influencer Chase DeMoor (who the fook is he? we’ve got ya covered here).

During that fracas Diaz was captured on camera choking out a Logan Paul impersonator. This has lead to a battery charge for the former UFC star. Diaz’s attorney has stated that his client acted in self-defence.

With both Diaz brothers involved in confrontations inside two weeks, and with one fighting and the other walking away, it’s a perfect time to revisit this debut BE piece by Stephanie Cuepo Wobby, which asks what you would do if you were in their shoes.
