Logan Paul lookalike choked out by Nate Diaz in the streets

A man who was supposedly choked to death by Nate Diaz sought vengeance on the UFC fighter and displayed a horrifying head wound.

The man, known online as TikTok user Rodney Petersen, claimed that after approaching Diaz during a street fight on Friday in New Orelans, he had been put in a chokehold. The victim was suffocated by Diaz until he lost consciousness, at which point he fell and hit his head on the concrete.

When a video of the altercation circulated, some noticed Petersen's likeness to influencer turned boxer Logan Paul. On his social media accounts, Peterson has previously made fun of people thinking he and his twin were the same person.

In a new video, a dazed Petersen curses Diaz and the apparent case of mistaken identity.

“So I don’t know what the hell I did to Nate Diaz,” he said. “But I’ll telling you what. I’m going to knock him the f*** out when I know he’s coming. You caught me off guard, dude. Did you think I was Logan? What the f***?”

Diaz can be seen running away from what seems to be a pub fight that erupted into the street in another footage of the incident. The former football player and reality star Chase DeMoor also appeared to be participating in the confrontation. Earlier on Friday, DeMoor was involved in another brawl involving Diaz, who threw a water bottle at him at the Misfits Boxing 6 competition where his longtime teammate Chris Avila was competing.

In a boxing battle scheduled for August, Diaz will take on Jake Paul, the younger brother of Logan Paul. His first fight since leaving the UFC as a free agent is this one. After the Aug. 6 event, he will return to the MMA promotion, he stated in the announcement of the fight.
