Nick Diaz Suspended One Year and Fined 60K for the marijuana metabolites in his post UFC 143 drug test .

Diaz fought the law and the law won.

MMAfighting.com has the scoop:
Embattled UFC welterweight Nick Diaz has been suspended for one year by the Nevada state athletic commission on Monday for his post-UFC 143 drug test that came back positive for marijuana metabolites.In addition, Diaz will have to forfeit 30 purse of his $200,000 fight purse, a total of $60,000.
Pretty weak considering Nick's valid medical reason for using Marijuana, but you have to wonder how much of this sentence is just pay back for having the audacity to launch a vigorous defense.
