WATCH: Nick Diaz talks with Snoop Dogg about suspension
On the latest episode of GGN, UFC star Nick Diaz talks with Snoop Dogg about his suspension, fighting, love from Cher, and more.
On three occasions, the NSAC has fined and suspended Diaz, who is an admitted medical marijuana patient, for positive marijuana tests. Commission Chairman Dr. Tony Alamo claimed cannabis was a performance-enhancer that made him “numb to the pain” and gave him an unfair advantage. In Sept. 2015, following a failed test at UFC 183, the NSAC gave him a five-year suspension—its second-longest behind Wanderlei Silva’s since-overturned 2014 lifetime ban for refusing to submit to a drug test—and fined him $165,000. On appeal, the punishment was later reduced and lifted. Diaz, who, like his younger brother, vaping Nate Diaz, is a cannabis advocate, has pointed out the absurdity of punishing marijuana use in a sport that has been rife with steroid use.Follow MyMMANews.com on Social Media
