In a recent YouTube video, Sean O’Malley shared his reaction to Diaz choking out Peterson on the street. O’Malley questioned Peterson’s motives while criticizing his behavior in approaching Diaz.
“What’s the point of rolling up to him in the first place with your hands up? Why not just not roll up to him. What’s the point of that? Just don’t walk towards him. It’s loud, it’s crazy. If you really want to have a conversation with him, I don’t know if that’s the best way.
“That dude was tall big. How did Nate reach around his neck? Had him in a headlock, slept him, and the knee in the gut.”
‘Suga’ Sean weighed in on Diaz’s scuffle with Chase DeMoor, praising the power and precision of the grappling aficionado in throwing the water bottle.
“What about the water bottles? That was a f**king piston right in the forehead. It bounced off his head.”
