Nate Diaz received a stern warning from USADA, for using a vape pen at the post-UFC 202 presser, but he also reportedly earned some cash…
Following his majority decision loss to Conor McGregor at the August 20th card, Diaz vaped while talking to the media. After doing so, Diaz said that the pen contained CBD oil, and that he was using it to help him recover from the bout.
Well, on a recent episode of “The MMA Hour”, Diaz also relayed the following, while discussing USADA’s investigation into the incident(quote via Bloody Elbow):
“It don’t matter,” Diaz said. “I banked out in the cannabis industry from it. … It was a good move and it was organic.”
Since Diaz’s pre-fight tests were clear for any banned substances, the Stockton fighter was only warned for using the vape pen.
