Despite rampant Twitter rumors of a confrontation with "The Stockton Slugger" in a nightclub last weekend (Nov. 16, 2013) after UFC 167 in Las Vegas, Nevada, Pettis denied ever coming face-to-face with the 209 contingent.
"Showtime" did, however, confirm a minor scuffle with a member of his entourage.
Pettis explains (via MMA Fight Corner):
"I think Twitter made it bigger than it really was. One of Nick Diaz' friends, I was taking a picture with a fan, (Diaz' friend) had something to say, my family don't play, their family don't play, drinks got thrown, security came. Me and Nick Diaz never had a confrontation together, I think Twitter blew it up a little more than it was. That's normal for me in Milwaukee, nothing big."
