Nick Diaz is suspended. Khabib Nurmagomedov is injured. But the two men seem to be keeping busy outside the cage.
In a video captured by MMA Interviews, Diaz is seen throwing a beer at Nurmagomedov during a skirmish at the World Series of Fighting event Saturday night at the Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.
MMAFighting.com's Shaun Al-Shatti, who was on the scene, reported that a fight between Nurmagomedov and Diaz's brother Nate started it all.

That was crazy. Saw it late but looked like actual punches got thrown between Diaz and Nurmagomedov. Khabib was legit pissed.— Shaheen Al-Shatti (@shaunalshatti) August 2, 2015
Nurmagomedov and Nate Diaz, both UFC lightweights, have been talking smack on Twitter for some time now. Nurmagomedov is out recovering from a second knee surgery in the last year. Nick Diaz, meanwhile, is under suspension for testing positive for marijuana after his UFC 183 main event loss to Anderson Silva.
The Diaz brothers were at WSOF 22 for their teammate Jake Shields. Nurmagomedov's brother competed on the card.
