Dana White has no idea why Nate Diaz and Khabib Nurmagomedov scuffled at UFC 239
UFC president and one of the main influencers in the industry Dana White commented on the scuffle between Nate Diaz (19-11) and Khabib Nurmagomedov (27-0) and his team that happened off the cage at the UFC 239.
White said the scuffle did happen but that he had no idea why and what was said between the two.
“They were probably talking sh** to each other back and forth. Everybody broke it up. We moved Diaz and Diaz left after the Melendez fight. Everybody got it before it became anything other than verbal. But it was only verbal. Kind of a bad situation but we got it through,” White said.
The verbal war broke outside the cage after Gilbert Melendez’s fight who is a close friend of Diaz. Witnesses say that Nate was going towards the rows where Nurmagomedov team was seating. It almost brought a fight but the security interfered on time.
It’s worth noting that the conflict between Diaz and Nurmagomedov has been wearing on for quite a long time, since the day when Dana White said Diaz refused to fight Khabib. Nate was offended and stated it was a lie.
