UFC Fighter Nick Diaz Suspended Five Years By NSAC After Testing Positive For Marijuana

by 3 years ago


Today, the Nevada Athletic Commission voted Monday to suspend Nick Diaz for five years for a failed UFC 183 drug test for marijuana metabolites.



While Nick Diaz is no angel and has been suspended many times for the same offense it’s completely absurd to suspend him for this long for something that doesn’t give him an advantage inside the cage, while steroid users like Anderson Silva only get 1-year suspensions.

Update: Nick Diaz has responded to the ruling by calling it in ridiculous and saying he’s the only UFC fighter not on steroids.
