Don't mess with Miss Nikki Baby's crew ... they're down to brawl with or without show cameras rolling.
The "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" star narrowly avoided an all-female rumble Sunday night outside of Catch. She was leaving with friends, when all of a sudden another group of women -- supposedly her friends or acquaintances -- rushed them and started trading blows until bodies hit the floor.
Interestingly, Nikki made sure no one messed up her hair or makeup. You can see she's right next to the action when the fight starts ... but she QUICKLY retreated to the sidelines.
Again, there doesn't appear to be any show cameras recording during the brawl. So, there's a much better chance this reality brawl is actually real.
