Nick Diaz’s lawyer issues response to NSAC



Nick Diaz is not going down without a fight.

Weeks after the Nevada State Athletic Commission announced that Diaz had tested positive for marijuana metabolites following his UFC 143 loss to Carlos Condit in February and was potentially subject to an undetermined punishment, Diaz’s lawyer, Ross Goodman of the Las Vegas-based Goodman Law Group, has issued a strong response to the NSAC, which raises some serious questions regarding whether Diaz deserves to be punished at all.

In the response, which Goodman has shared with MMAFighting.com and can be found below, he explains that Diaz’s medical marijuana use, which he states should be, according to the World Anti-Doping Agency, whose laws have been adopted by the NSAC, considered “out-of-competition” since it ended eight days before the fight, plus the fact that only marijuana metabolites were found in his system, are reasons why Diaz didn’t break any of the NSAC’s rules.

    I definitely hope Nick wins this. Marijuana as a banned drug by the NSAC is stupid.
