UFC issues statement on Nick Diaz

May 27, 2018

The UFC has issued a statement on Nick Diaz in light of his arrest in Las Vegas on Thursday night related to domestic violence allegations.

Via UFC.com:

“UFC is aware of the recent arrest of middleweight athlete, Nick Diaz. The organization does not tolerate domestic violence and requires all athletes to adhere to the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy. Every athlete is deserving of due process and this situation, as with any official allegations, will be duly reviewed and thoroughly investigated by an independent party.”

Payout Perspective:

Despite not being active, Diaz is one of the more popular figures in the UFC.  The UFC understands this and it will be interesting to see how this issue is handled.  While there are rumors of the incident surfacing, its ultimately up to legal authorities in Vegas as to whether there is enough information to prosecute Diaz.  The UFC will give Diaz the benefit of the doubt, but there should be a point where the company must draw a line.
