Nick Diaz got the shaft from the Nevada State Athletic Commission, who levied a five-year suspension on him this week for an alleged failed post-UFC 183 drug test. The offending drug was marijuana, and naturally, much of the MMA community is up in arms and siding with Diaz.

But not Hall of Famer and former welterweight champ Matt Hughes!

Apparently in Hughes’ eyes, showing up at an administrative hearing with kickass lawyers is “punk” behavior.

Thankfully, some fellow fighters – like Matt Mitrione – called Hughes out on his harsh public opinion.

Hughes has since backtracked a bit…

What do you think? Was Hughes out of line?
