That was the case in a very dramatic way. A significant weigh-in issue caused Chimaev to miss weight by 7.5 pounds and resulted in him being removed from the card. It also caused three unexpected fights to be inserted in the top of the pay-per-view card.
The incident was just the beginning of a night of mayhem that went on in New Orleans. Later on, a video of DeMoor putting a Logan Paul lookalike into a submission hold and choking him unconscious began making its way around.As if that wasn’t enough, a second video surfaced showing Diaz throwing a water bottle at DeMoor during the same street fight. While it’s unclear why the Stockton native got into a scuffle with DeMoor, it was likely the result of him not liking how dangerous DeMoor was being in the ring.
Later that night, DeMoor and Diaz’s team got into a wild brawl on Bourbon Street. The Stockton native was seen choking out a Logan Paul lookalike, leaving him unconscious. The video went viral, and now the New Orleans Police Department wants answers.
Diaz last fought in September 2022 at UFC 279, defeating Tony Ferguson by a fourth-round submission. He decided not to re-sign with the UFC, leading to a boxing match against Jake Paul on August 5. It’s unclear if the New Orleans warrant will jeopardize the upcoming event.
It’s no surprise that the UFC has a lot of fans. The organization is credited with single-handedly launching mixed martial arts into the mainstream and bringing it to the public eye.
