Will Nick Diaz be Able to Fight Again this Year?

Publish date:

Nick Diaz just wants to return to fighting. However, thanks to a suspension handed down by the Nevada Athletic Commission, that seems impossible at the moment.

Cesar Gracie, the manager and trainer for Diaz, discussed his fighter during a recent meeting with the UFC. Gracie also informed MMAjunkie.com that Ross Goldman, the lawyer for Diaz, is appealing the suspension yet again.

"Theoretically, if a judge says he'll look at it and it will take a couple of months, he could put a stay on the suspension," Gracie said. "And at that point, Nick would be more than free to fight. But that's an if."

Diaz was suspended for a second failed drug test earlier this year. His suspensions runs until February of 2013.
