Nick Diaz is facing two additional charges in the domestic violence case against him. MMAjunkie reports that Clark County (Nevada) District Attorney prosecutors filed an amended complaint against Diaz, adding an additional felony count of battery constituting domestic violence by strangulation and felony battery domestic violence resulting in substantial bodily harm.

Those charges are in addition to the initial charges of felony domestic battery by strangulation and misdemeanor domestic battery. The charges come from a woman who claimed to be his on-and-off girlfriend, who claimed he assaulted her on May 24th.

Diaz’s attorney asked for a continuance to review the additional charges. As a result, the case has been postponed until July 31st. Diaz’s lawyer said in a statement, “We were surprised that the state filed an amended complaint in court this morning given that there is no new evidence that would warrant adding charges. Regardless, we are confident that that truth will come to light vindicating Mr. Diaz after a thorough cross-examination exposing (the alleged victim’s) inconsistent and contradictory allegations.”
