MMA fighter Nate Diaz used homophobic slurs during a confrontation with an employee of Jake Paul’s betting company ahead of his fight against the YouTuber-turned-boxer.

CNN has reached out to Diaz for comment.

This isn’t the first time Diaz has used homophobic slurs against his opponents.

He was suspended by the UFC 10 years ago for using a homophobic slur to describe MMA fighter Bryan Caraway on Twitter.

It’s unlikely that Diaz or his camp will answer to CNN and it’s unclear if the Texas commission can fine him for using homophobic slurs.
