Hotel issues statement regarding Nick Diaz's reported bathroom brawl - 'There was no altercation'

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight (and part-time middleweight) veteran Nick Diaz was reportedly involved in a knock-down, drag-out brawl earlier this week inside Hyde nightclub at Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Read all the gory details here.

But shortly after news broke that Diaz was "jumped" by a couple or roving thugs, reps from the "Sin City" establishment insisted there was no incident, at least not where they do business.

"There was no altercation inside Hyde Bellagio," a representative told "We enjoyed having Nick with us and he is always welcome at Hyde."

I know it's hard to believe Diaz would get into a fight outside the Octagon amirite.

The former Strikeforce champion was recently reinstated by Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) after serving a disciplinary suspension for marijuana. The promotion has yet to book his return fight, but no doubt something will be in the works for this fall, if not sooner.

As for his brother Nate? That's an entirely different story.
