Nate Diaz Confronted with Civil Suit by Logan Paul Lookalike

Nate Diaz, notorious for his brash persona both inside and outside the octagon, finds himself entangled in legal troubles as a civil suit unfolds against him, stemming from a past altercation with social media influencer Rodney Peterson.

The incident, which occurred in New Orleans last year, saw Diaz engage in a physical altercation with Peterson, known for his striking resemblance to Logan Paul and often referred to as "Not Logan Paul." In a confrontation captured on camera, Diaz allegedly choked Peterson, resulting in the influencer being left incapacitated on the street. Subsequently, Diaz was arrested and charged with second-degree battery for his actions against Peterson in April 2023.

Now, 12 months later, Peterson has decided to pursue legal action against Diaz by moving forward with a civil suit. Despite the looming legal battle, Diaz's legal representative, Zach Rosenfield, appears unfazed by the development.

Meanwhile, amidst the legal turmoil, Diaz is preparing for a high-stakes boxing showdown with Jorge Masvidal on June 1st. The anticipated bout marks a rematch nearly five years after their memorable encounter at UFC 244, albeit in a different setting — the boxing ring.

Diaz, who ventured into boxing last year in a losing effort against Jake Paul, seeks redemption for a previous defeat suffered at the hands of Masvidal in 2019. Masvidal, a former UFC standout, has recently transitioned to boxing after a string of losses in mixed martial arts, signaling his return to the sport after a 19-year hiatus.
