A day after UFC Welterweight Nick Diaz was suspended for 1 year for testing positive for marijuana after UFC 143, his coach took to the airwaves to defend him. Cesar Gracie was a guest on “Just Scrap Radio” on BJPenn.com today and gave his thoughts about the Nevada State Athletic Commission hearing and did not hold back.

“It was a joke really,” Gracie said. “I thought it was like a kangaroo court.” Gracie expressed that he felt that Diaz’s fate was decided before the hearing even began and that the point of the hearing was to make an example out of Diaz.

I don't always agree with Cesar, but it was kind of a joke.

Diaz isn't the one handing out licenses to cheat.

1. 2nd offense.
2. He said he didn't want to fight anymore anyway, so why does Cesar care?

So correct me if I'm wrong, this just means he can't fight in Vegas right? or is it a nation wide suspension?

The NSAC suspended him for testing positive for a thc metabolite and didn't know what a thc metabolite was until the hearing? Way to go in prepared. They didn't even know what they were suspending him for. NSAC again with the hearing fail.

This IS a Joke.

No way Nick should have been suspended. NSAC needs a serious overhaul.
