Of all the people to emerge as the persecuted anti-hero proving once and for all the dreadful overreach of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, it had to be Nick Diaz. Because of course it did.

And of all the substances to serve as the catalyst for demonstrating that point, it had to be marijuana, of which Diaz is known to be a bit of an enthusiast. Because, apparently, the MMA gods have a sense of humor...

Good article. It'll be interesting to see how this all turns out once this hits a real court room. I'm assuming it'll turn out a lot better for Nick, and it'll be bad for the AC. Setting a new precedent on the real authority and possibly starting a chain reaction of fighters who have the money to hire good lawyers taking it further up the chain when they don't like how they're being treated by the AC. Not sure they could have avoided it in this situation as Nick is as stubborn as they come, but they definitely didn't do themselves any favors by handing down this ridiculous punishment. IMO, they've made themselves look like arrogant assholes who don't deserve to hold any position that gives them any right to hand out punishment.
