By now you had to have heard that UFC top welterweight fighter Nick Diaz tested positive for marijuana metabolites following his decision loss against Carlos Condit. Diaz has since been put on temporary suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission and is expected to be handed down a one year suspension from the sport.
Luckily for Diaz, he has someone very important on his side, co-owner of the UFC , Lorenzo Fertitta took to his Twitter earlier today and made this statement regarding Nick returning to the UFC after his year suspension.
He will be back. Really like the kid just needs to get it together. I’m a sap for real fighters.”
Whether you like him or not, it looks as if Diaz is not going away any time soon, unless it is of his accord.
