Logan Paul lookalike who got choked out by Nate Diaz reveals what he said to fighter

Logan Paul lookalike who got choked out by Nate Diaz reveals what he said to fighter

It escalated really quickly...

In case you hadn't heard, Nate Diaz went on a rampage last night, with a Logan Paul lookalike finding himself in the firing line.

Footage shared from the pretty brutal altercation has been doing the rounds on social media. Here's Diaz with the KO:

The former UFC star was in New Orleans yesterday evening (21 April) for the Misfits boxing event at XULA Convention Center, where his mate Chris Avila was in the ring.

However, things took a really dark turn midway through the show, with Diaz involved in a bit of handbags with Chase DeMoor after he launched a bottle of water at the fighter.

The fight then spilled out onto the streets of New Orleans, with Diaz's entourage clashing once again with DeMoor, who at one point appeared to get cornered by the group.

And in a clip shared online, Diaz can be seen confronting someone who looks an awful lot like Logan Paul, with the pair grappling with one another.

The deadly MMA vet, though, clearly comes out on top, grabbing hold of the lookalike's neck and choking him out.

After a few seconds, he lets go and the guy drops to the floor like a bag of cement.

But what the hell happened? Well, the man in question, Rodney Petersen, has finally had his say on how things escalated so quickly between them both.

Sharing the clip to his Instagram account, Petersen explained that he wasn't looking for any trouble, and was actually trying to calm things down.

Revealing what he said to Diaz before he put hands on him, Petersen wrote: "Got attacked by Nate Diaz.

"Wtf, I was like, 'Bro, chill'. He was like, 'I someone say kill?'"

I mean if there was a lesson for all of us here, I think it's that no matter your intentions, you really shouldn't approach a trained killer in a fight. It can only end one way.

And as you can imagine, the clip has attracted plenty of attention online, as alongside White’s reaction clip, the footage was also shared by Diaz’s former opponent Conor McGregor, who wrote: “Hahaha Nate on a rampage tonight! Let’s go Nate! Hahaha” and “Lovely little knee to the body hahahaa”.

Diaz has not fought professionally since September 2022, when he secured a win against Donald Ferguson.

He is set to get in the ring with Logan's brother Jake Paul in a boxing match later this year.

LADbible has contacted Nate Diaz's representatives for a comment.
