>Nick Diaz reacts to five-year suspension: NSAC was 'way the fuck out of line'
>Diaz (26-9 MMA) received a five-year suspension and $165,000 fine for positive marijuana tests at UFC 183
>Diaz tested positive for the substance twice in the past and the NSAC cited his repeat offense status into the punishment.
>тАЬIтАЩm pretty pissed off,тАЭ Diaz told MMAjunkie after the hearing. тАЬFirst of all, this sport, this commission and everybody, theyтАЩve done everything they can to keep me from being all the way on top where I should be."
>тАЬThose people are nothing but a bunch of crooks up there... They got me in here sweating bullets in a freaking court room with my lawyers because they all think IтАЩm going to flip out and do something really nuts like I was about this close to doing. I just think that itтАЩs bullshit."
>Diaz said he was eager to speak his mind during the commission but instead let his lawyers represent his side of the argument. He shared his thoughts on the NSACтАЩs commissioners afterwards though.
>тАЬI wanted to tell them what I think; I wanted to tell each and every one of that theyтАЩre a bunch of dorks,тАЭ Diaz said.
>тАЬI wanted to tell them all, тАШLook, you guys are way the f-ck out of line. You guys are trying to hold me down from Day 1.тАЩ
>DiazтАЩs lawyers plan to appeal the NSAC ruling, but itтАЩs unknown how long that process will take. For now, though, Diaz must pay the fine and his license to compete in Nevada is suspended until Jan. 31, 2020 тАУ five years from the date of the UFC 183 contest. Moreover, Diaz will not be able to acquire a license to corner other fighters, which means he cannot corner his brother Nate Diaz for his December UFC bout.
>тАЬI canтАЩt even go тАУ my brother has a fight coming up; are you going to tell me I canтАЩt even go corner my brother when he goes in? This isnтАЩt a sport, this is war; this is warfare. This is a war game. HeтАЩs going in there to fight for his life and I canтАЩt even go stand next to him?тАЭ
>Diaz initially suffered a unanimous decision loss to Silva at UFC 183. However, Silva also tested positive for banned substances around the event. SilvaтАЩs drug tests were not for marijuana, though, but rather a variety of anabolic steroids.
>Silva, a former UFC middleweight champion, was fined $380,000 for his positive test, but only received a one-year suspension. Diaz said the difference in punishment is perplexing, especially because steroids are universally considered to be a far more dangerous substance.
>Until DiazтАЩs representatives can file an appeal and move the case forward, he will be suck on the sidelines waiting for the situation to unfold. Diaz said heтАЩs not sure what heтАЩll do in that time, which is particularly infuriating because he wants to fight as soon as possible.
>тАЬIтАЩm looking at doing this (until) next year, if anything; IтАЩm not doing nothing but high-profile fights,тАЭ Diaz said. тАЬAnybody that they try to tell you is the best fighter in the world right now at 170, 185 тАУ we donтАЩt know that now. IтАЩm pretty sure itтАЩs me. IтАЩm pretty damn confident itтАЩs me.
>тАЬ(IтАЩll be doing) nothing I guess. TheyтАЩre not going to let me fight. IтАЩm going to go teach jiu-jitsu. IтАЩll teach you how to throw a punch. One-year, two-year, five-year, IтАЩm looking at fighting like right quick, otherwise who am I going to fight? IтАЩm not looking at doing no fights.тАЭ
>>732632 He knew the rules man. Was very simple to avoid. I have no sympathy for him. Is it a good rule? No, but fuck man. The guy's just a dumbass. You can see it in his behavior. You can see it in the way he talks. You can see it in his use of pot.
>>732652 I agree, he's not the smartest guy around, you can find that out listening to him talk. I just can't help feeling like he's the victim of a really shitty punishment for a really shitty rule. It's not like he smoked crack or got busted for PED. He did a drug that grows from the Earth and is well on it's way to becoming legal. He got a punishment harsher than a fighter busted for steroids TWO times would get for doing something that has no effect at all on his fights.
>>732748 >somebody losing his shit because a bunch of retards ended his career for some dude weed lmao is a buffoon you must be stupid if you dont get how ridicolously disproportionate the punishment is
I know Diaz personally through a family friend and that dude can be pretty chill, but at the same time, if you just listen to him, he's a fucktard. I wouldn't say it to his face though. Might rage out and go apeshit.
This dude has been seen hanging around at the Barnes and Nobles in my town just straight pedo'ing it with the local highschool girls after the get out. Wtf is that shit...
>>732652 Just because Nick Diaz is stupid doesnt mean it isnt also a stupid rule. If you made the speed limit on the highway 3 MPH and someone was "stupid" enough to speed, would you be focusing on the person, or the rule which is beyond retarded?
Seems to me youre missing the point. Marijuana is not a PED and has no place being monitored in the first place, much less being punished five times as harshly as steroids.
No, he shouldn't be. Roids and PAS are one thing, but suspending someone for pot smoking is just policing their personal lives. It has nothing to do with the competition of fights, so why on earth should it be seen as pertinent?
>>738263 Yup, I feel like this is the major issue. He knew the rules, he agreed to them, he didn't learn his lesson.
If he wanted to say maybe not get caught repeatedly smoking AND you know maybe do something like lobby to get rid of the nonsensical rule that would be fine. But just being a dumb ass and throwing your career down the toilet is not something that you should defend. It's not like he got in trouble for doing something productive.
>>740087 >ive heard many fighters say they dont even feel pain until after the fights >because they have no self control and are drenched in adrenaline the whole time, giving them mental tunnel vision, rather than being calm and conditioned fighters
>>740087 >fighters have broken arms and legs in fights and were very mad the doctor wouldn't let them continue fighting. >fighters are overly emotionally driven (stupid) animals with no consideration for the future
