In footage uploaded to Twitter by boxer Paul Bamba, Diaz can be seen choking out one of several men who appeared to be involved in the brawl, before dropping the victim’s unconscious body on to the street. Viewers were quick to point out the uncanny resemblance between Diaz’s unfortunate street fight opponent, and his upcoming boxing ring opponent, Logan Paul.
According to Bloody Elbow, the unconscious man has in fact been identified as Rodney Petersen, a TikTok personality.
