Nick Diaz will make his debut as a promoter June 22 in Stockton, California. The promotion, WAR MMA, will make their debut at the Stockton Arena in Stockton, California. The card will be headlined by “Skrap Pack” member Daniel Roberts taking Justin Baesman.
Diaz will still have to make one final appearance, via teleconference, before the California State Athletic Commission on June 10 to officially receive his license.
The promotion will include both professional and amateur bouts and will use a modified version of the Unified Rules of MMA. The promotion will use a ring rather than a cage, and will ban elbows since it apparently “encourages holding and stalling.” The event is expected to be streamed live on June 22 for those not in attendance.
