Former UFC welterweight title contender Nick Diaz was arrested today, May 25, for an alleged domestic violence incident, according to MMAJunkie.
"Diaz, who was being held at Clark County Detention Center, was charged with felony domestic battery by strangulation, as well as misdemeanor domestic battery for the alleged incident.
A person with knowledge of the case told MMAjunkie that 12 units were dispatched to the scene, the alleged female victim was transported to a local hospital, and Diaz was combative with officers during his arrest."
Diaz hasn't fought since Jan. 2015 due to a failed drug test for marijuana his fight against Anderson Silva. Diaz recently served a 12-month suspension for that violation but has yet to announce whether he planned to fight in the UFC again.
