Buchholz Talks In-Depth On UFC 199 Backstage Brawl Between Nate Diaz & Jason Guida

After Clay Guida lost to Brian Ortega at UFC 199 last Saturday night at The Forum in Inglewood, California, a brawl broke out between UFC star Nate Diaz and Clay’s older brother, Jason Guida.

Regarding the wild incident involving Diaz and Guida backstage at the event, Team Alpha Male coach Justin Buchholz, who witnessed the brawl live, stated the following.

“It was the first time I cornered with Clay’s brother, Jason Guida. Like a 285 lbs huge f*cking dude,” said Buchholz. “After Clay got stopped, doctors were coming in and corners were being kept outside the cage and everything. I turn around and one of the UFC stools was just shattered in 6 pieces. Jason ripped it to shreds or slammed it, and his brother just got stopped, and was flying off the handle emotionally.”

“We were walking in the back after, and Clay was walking in front,” added Buchholz. “Nate was walking out of the bathroom, and Clay said something to him, but Clay was discombobulated at that time too. He just said something to Nate. He was all like, ‘Man, I’m gonna f*ck you up again’ or something like that.”

As Buchholz explained, Diaz began to talk back and the larger Guida took offense when he said, “What, motherf*cker? Are you joking?”

“Then Jason and Nate got into it. I don’t know what happened, but Jason bull rushes Nate and tries to put him up against the wall,” said Buchholz. “Nate has got him in a clinch. Like 50 people from the UFC come rushing into this thing. I’m standing in the middle like, ‘Nooooo!'”

“It was going down. Clay was grabbing Jason, a bunch of people grabbing Nate. They were trying to f*cking kill each other for a good 30 or 40 seconds,” added Buchholz. “They get broken up, and Clay’s got Jason, people got Nate. I’m looking at Nate, like ‘f*ck! We weren’t trying to fight. I didn’t know what happened.'”
