Former Agent’s Lawsuit Against Nate Diaz Over Contract Dispute Is Dismissed

Former Agent’s Lawsuit Against Nate Diaz Over Contract Dispute Is Dismissed

Nate Diaz, a lightweight and part-time welterweight contender earns a victory against his former agent.

The Ballengee Group is a Dallas-based sports agency has filed a civil lawsuit against UFC lightweight star Nate Diaz, claiming Diaz refused to pay the agency for its services related to several of his fights, including a two lucrative match with Conor McGregor at UFC 196 and UFC 202.

Ballengee Group filed a lawsuit against the Stockton slugger in the state of Texas, and Judge Jane J. Boyle claimed the case had no jurisdiction in the state. TMZ Sports was first to report the news.

Former agent was seeking more than $1 million for breach of contract after claiming that Diaz terminated his contract with the company without paying for services provided.

“We are very pleased the Court dismissed the case because Nate has not fought in Texas and the case should not have been filed in Texas,” Diaz’s attorney Jeremiah Reynolds said in a statement (via MMA Fighting).

Diaz last fought at UFC 202, where UFC champ Conor McGregor won via a majority decision back in August 2016. Prior to that Nate Diaz won against Mcgregor via submission at UFC 196 in the same year. However, the Stockton, Calif., native recently teased a comeback on social media, targeting a May or June Octagon return.
