UFC’s Nick Diaz Suspended 5 Years


The Neveda State Athletic Commission has suspended Nick Diaz for five years over his third marijuana related offense. A lifetime ban was considered before a five year suspension was ultimately agreed upon. According to Skip Avansino, NSA commissioner, a five year ban is essentially a lifetime ban for him.

As expected Diaz was not pleased with the ruling and his lawyers plan to appeal.

Here are a few reactions from the sports world.

    If you don’t like the punishment don’t break the rules. They gave him three chances to correct his behavior, maybe now they have his attention. On the bright side, he can smoke all the weed he wants now.
