Nick Diaz Announces Lawsuit Against NSAC, Mentions Octagon Return Vs. Carlos Condit

It appears retirement is not something Nick Diaz plans on sticking to.

Recently, Diaz announced that he has filed a lawsuit against the Nevada State Athletic Commission following his post-fight drug test that came back with traces of marijuana in his system. NSAC has yet to hold a hearing for the test, so Diaz feels like it is null and void.

MMA Fighting’s Luke Thomas has broken down the entire lawsuit, complete in detail. Diaz believes the case should be thrown out, as would the suspension, since NSAC has not granted him a hearing within 45 days. NSAC has countered that they have been waiting for a medical card from Diaz to show he has legal use for marijuana.

In the letter sent by Diaz and his lawyer, it mentions Carlos Condit and a return to the UFC. Diaz states that UFC president Dana White offered up an immediate rematch between the two, but the suspension for Diaz made that impossible. He adds, “I would be prepared to compete against Mr. Condit or against any other opponent deemed suitable immediately (if the suspension is upheld).”

This would be a very interesting turn of events for Diaz, NSAC and the UFC if things go the way of the Stockton fighter. It remains to be seen what kind of action NSAC will take now.
