Here Are Those Videos of Khabib Nurmagomedov and the Diaz Bros Brawling at WSOF 22

Although the Diaz brothers have always struck me as the epitome of professionalism and class both inside and out of the octagon, it appears that even the most mild-mannered personalities can come unglued from time to time.

Just moments prior to Rousimar Palhares proving his assholishness outright at WSOF 22 last weekend, the youngest of the brothers Diaz engaged in what I’m sure was a rousing debate about the current GOP race with fellow UFC lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov — I’m guessing Diaz sided with the brash, incomprehensible arrogance of Donald Trump, whereas Khabib was more of a Chris Christie fan. In any case, this argument quickly escalated into an all-out brawl, with members of both crews exchanging haymakers before security could separate them. Then Nick Diaz threw a beer at Khabib, because hey, #Trump2016Bitch.

The majority of the scrap was caught on camera by MMAInterviews, but this being a Diaz brawl and all, you can rest assured that it spilled out into the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino just moments later.

Rousimar Palhares: Still an Asshole (WSOF 22 Results)

Rousimar Palhares is an asshole. He has always been an asshole. He was fired from the UFC, in fact, for being an asshole. That he has still been able to find gainful employment as a fighter is a testament to the desperation of mid-tier MMA organizations needing to boost their cards with somewhat recognizable talent.

At WSOF 22 last weekend, Palhares once again proved that he is an asshole, repeatedly eye-gouging Jake Shields before, and you’re never going to believe this, holding onto the fight-ending kimura for long after the referee had intervened and even longer after his opponent had tapped. This led to a somewhat dramatic exchange at the end of the fight, in which Shields punched Palhares after the bell while his corner had to be restrained from gang-stomping Palhares a new asshole.

In fact, the only person who you could argue was a bigger asshole than Palhares that night was referee Steve Mazzagatti — although he fell more into the “incompetent asshole” sub-category of assholes to Palhares’ “vengeful asshole.” Not only did Mazzagatti fail to dock Palhares points for his repeated, blatant eye gouges, but he made nothing of the fact that a man with a history of holding submissions to long, well, held yet another submission too long.

Thankfully, it looks like the WSOF has finally had enough of Rousimar Palhares’ assholishness. Head after the jump for the details.
