In a decision that is dropping jaws throughout the support, the Nevada State Athletic Commission has suspended Nick Diaz for five years…
Diaz appeared in front of the NSAC today, as a result of testing positive for marijuana, following his bout with Anderson Silva in January. Since Diaz has tested positive for marijuana three times before, a lot of folks predicted the NSAC would throw the book at the renowned fighter, but not too many people saw a five year suspension coming.
The decision is being reported by multiple outlets. Diaz was also fined $165,000 dollars.
The 32 year-old, former Strikeforce champ, who is medically licensed to use marijuana in California, plans to appeal the decision.
