Injunction Sought By Nick Diaz Denied By Nevada District Court

Nick Diaz had hoped the Nevada district count would grant him an injunction in his case against the Nevada State Athletic Commission concerning a failed post-fight drug test.

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.
