It looks like all the public outcry and anger that was expressed over Nick Diaz’s lengthy suspension might pay off, as a new report says the star could be eligible to fight again next summer. Yes, speaking out sometimes works…
Not long ago, it was revealed that Diaz and his camp are in talks with the Nevada Commission, who recently handed him a five years suspension. The sentence was handed down as a result of his third positive test for marijuana earlier this year.
Well, immediately after the suspension was announced, thousands of fans and many high profile fighters spoke out about the decision. On the latest edition of “UFC Tonight“, Ariel Helwani reported that he’s been told Diaz’s suspension could be chopped down to 18 months. This would mean he could possibly fight next summer.
So, this could be big, big news for Diaz fans as well as the UFC, as there’s no question the outspoken fighter is one of their top draws.
Now the question is, who will he fight?
