However, those hopes were denied Monday. That means Diaz must appear May 21 in front of NSAC.
“That’s pretty much what we wanted in the first place, so in a way, it’s a win,” Cesar Gracie, manager for Diaz told MMA Junkie’s Steven Marrocco. “The injunction would have been great. However, I think with the NSAC giving him a hearing, which before they were refusing to allow, it worked out.”
Diaz tested positive for marijuana following a test after his loss to Carlos Condit. Diaz had stated that NSAC was in violation for not holding a hearing within 45 days of the suspension, but the Commission disagreed.
