The Reaction Has Been Unanimous Regarding UFC Fighter Nick Diaz's Insanely Lengthy Ban

The Reaction Has Been Unanimous Regarding UFC Fighter Nick Diaz's Insanely Lengthy Ban
By PJ Browne Updated

The Nevada Athletic Commission has handed UFC fighter Nick Diaz a five-year (yes, five-year) suspension after he tested positive for marijuana following UFC 183.

Diaz lost to Anderson Silva at the event back in January.

The 32-year-old has also been fined $165,000.

The reaction to the news has been pretty much unanimous.

Chairman of the NAC Francisco Aguilar said that the suspension had more to do with Diaz's 'disregard' for the rules of the sport than his use of marijuana.

This not just a case of marijuana. I think this is a case of complete lack of disregard for the sport.

This is Diaz's third suspension for the use of the drug.

He will not be eligible to fight again until January 31, 2020.
