The 34-year-old Diaz is charged with felony domestic battery by strangulation and misdemeanor domestic battery. Bail was set at $18,000, and Diaz has since been released from custody. Sources told MMAjunkie that the alleged victim was transported to a local hospital and that Diaz was combative with officers during the arrest.
On Friday, the UFC released the following statement:
“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.”
Diaz has not competed inside the Octagon since losing to Anderson Silva at UFC 183 back in January 2015. The fight was later overturned to a no contest after Silva tested positive for multiple banned substances, although Diaz himself would serve an 18-month suspension for his third positive test for marijuana in the state of Nevada.
