The TAC has a check and more coming from Nick Diaz. Diaz has on paper admitted his role in a brawl following April's "Strikeforce: Nashville" event, according to his representative. Diaz on Monday sent the Tennessee Athletic Commission a "consent order" that will trigger a three-month suspension from professional competition. However, the fighter will not be licensed in time for a Strikeforce event planned for Aug. 21 in which he was considered for a possible eight-man middleweight tournament. Cesar Gracie, Diaz's manager and trainer, said Tuesday that the fighter included his fine with the consent order as part of a reduced punishment for his role in the brawl, though he did not disclose the amount his client paid. The fine could be $5000 because he agreed to the consent order.

It's not not a bum deal for Diaz at all. He deserves his punishment. It's a raw deal for fans, considering of of SF top fighters made himself ineliegable for the tourney!
