Year-Long Suspension Upheld By Nevada Athletic Commission For Nick Diaz

Well, it appears we won’t be seeing Nick Diaz inside an Octagon again anytime soon.

Monday, after a lengthy hearing, the Nevada Athletic Commission decided to uphold the year-long suspension given to Diaz for his failed post-fight drug test following a loss to Carlos Condit at UFC 143.

The test showed marijuana metabolites in the urine of Diaz. He was also fined a portion of his purse from the main event bout.

Diaz will have his suspension expire on February 4, 2013. Along with his attorney, Ross Goodman, Diaz appeared before the commission on Monday after Chael Sonnen’s appearance on a testosterone-related ordeal.

Kid Nate from Bloody Elbow was patient and followed the several-hours-long court hearing, compiling a series of interesting notes.
