Nick Diaz Sues The Nevada State Athletic Commission
STUDIO MMA, RIVERSIDE – UFC welterweight Nick Diaz and his lawyer Ross C. Goodman filed a lawsuit against the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) Tuesday, April 24.
Diaz’s suit claims that the NSAC violated statutory law and deprived him of his Constitutional rights to due process when they failed to hold a hearing within 45 days of Diaz’s positive test for marijuana metabolites, which occurred after his UFC 143 bout against Carlos Condit.
Also Diaz is asking for full dismissal of all charges, citing the multiple hearing delays have violated Diaz’s right to state his arguments for the temporary suspension the NSAC handed down to him on February 22.
MMAFighting.com first reported the news Thursday.
If the suspension is lifted, Diaz states in his sworn affidavit he is prepared to fight “immediately”. You can view the entire complaint from Diaz’s lawyer.
If the court rules in Diaz’s favor, could we finally see the rematch against current UFC interim welterweight champion, Carlos Condit?
