Nick Diaz Sues The Nevada State Athletic Commission

UFC welterweight bad boy Nick Diaz has filed suit against the Nevada State Athletic Commission claiming violations of both statutory law and his Constitutional right to Due Process. The lawsuit seeks to have Diaz's current suspension squashed and to stay any further disciplinary proceedings relating to the marijuana metabolites found in Diaz's UFC 143 positive post fight drug test.
"The summary suspension against me, made without any consideration of the merits of the Complaint, is the only reason I am aware of that a rematch against Mr Condit has not been scheduled. If the summary suspension is set aside, I would be prepared to compete against Mr. Condit or against any other opponent deemed suitable immediately."
