Nick Diaz Forced to Pay a Huge Fine

| by

Nick Diaz, who announced his retirement from MMA following a loss to Carlos Condit at UFC 143 for the interim UFC welterweight title, was fined $79,500, confirmed with the Nevada Athletic Commission.

Diaz was suspended after his post-fight drug test showed marijuana metabolites in his system. He tried to fight the test, but has since been given a suspension that will go until next year.

Keith Kizer, executive director for the commission, confirmed the numbers, as it had been previously reported Diaz would be fined 30 percent. That would have cost him $60,000, but the fine ended up being more for the 28-year-old.
