Influencer boxer Chase DeMoor claims he was ‘jumped’ by UFC legend Nate Diaz and his friends following KSI’s latest Misfits event.
DeMoor is a former American football player who found fame on the Netflix dating show ‘Too Hot to Handle’ before turning his celebrity status into a boxing career.
The 26-year-old had an eventful night on Friday, as he knocked out former professional wrestler Steve Knight only to be disqualified for hitting him several times while he was unconscious on the floor.
After dropping to 0-2 as a professional boxer, DeMoor found himself in a ringside altercation with Diaz who aimed a water bottle his way during a melee that was broken up by security.
However, they clashed again outside of the arena and things got ugly.
Diaz was caught on camera choking out a Logan Paul lookalike and footage of the incident has since gone viral ahead of his fight with Jake Paul on August 5.
Other videos from the street brawl show DeMoor getting cornered by several men who repeatedly punch him in the face as he tries to de-escalate the situation.
On Sunday, the reality TV star took to social media to give his side of the story and issue a call out to Diaz and the people who attacked him.

DeMoor said: “This message is for Nate Diaz and all his boys.
“As you can see, you guys finally put some damage on me. I didn’t take any damage in any of my boxing matches and you guy guys had to jump me in New Orleans.
“All of you guys are in the UFC and are MMA fighters and I had to fight your whole team off. You and your crew are the softest boys.
“All those kids on your team, I don’t know how they are in the UFC or have any sort of winning record. You guys have pillows for hands, soft toilet paper for hands.
“You guys are a bunch of wipes, bro, and I can’t wait to watch Jake Paul unalive you whenever you guys are fighting because I’ll be there, and I’ll be there to handle all your goons too just in case they get out of line.”
DeMoor went on to suggest he’d be open to transitioning to MMA for a fight with Conor McGregor’s long-time rival who is expected to return to the sport that made him famous after his fight with Paul.
He added “Nate, if you’re watching this, get yourself locked in a cage with me for five minutes.
“I promise you, I’m going to show you what that 40lb weight difference feels like. You’re soft. Jake, handle my light work.”
