Guida took to social media earlier this year to call Diaz out:

Diaz and Guida actually already fought (professionally) back in 2009, where Guida took a split decision over the Stockton slugger. Guida has been tweeting quite a bit about a rematch with Diaz lately, which could have played into their backstage scuffle.
