    He just fought a few weeks back in DREAM (now partners with EliteXC) cuz the athletic commissions in the US wont let him fight cuz he smokes weed. He'll probably be fighting overseas from now on unless the athletic commission changes their mind. (theyre stubborn as fuck, so dont hold your breath)

    Thats just what i remember readin on here a while back. I dont read sherdog or any other mma sites so i might be wrong. Why'd he fight in dream then? i thought it's cuz the athletic commission denied him cuz he has a cannabis club card or some shit.

    He's also fighting Muhsin Corbbrey on the 14th in Honolulu, which was still in the states last time I checked, so thats wrong. And lets see...oh yeah, according to the CSAC/Armando Garcia, he was denied a license to fight on the March 29 eliteXC/strikeforce card because he didn't provide his medical documentation to the comission early enough to be reviewed (according to Garcia they received it on the 25th of March). Garcia also said, and I quote, that he is "not suspended and will be licensed shortly." So it looks like you were wrong about that too.

    Nick/Cesar Gracie were the only ones who brought up marijuana/possibly testing dirty. They offered to have him piss to prove he was clean, and Garcia responded by saying the comission did not have the authority to require that and that it wouldn't make a difference anyway. The only state that has suspended him due to pot is NV where he tested dirty post-Gomi, and he has served that suspension and should receive a license in NV (if he doesn't have one already) upon application.

    Aight thanks, i genuinely wanted to know what was up with him cuz last i heard the commission kept him from fighting cuz of his weed habit and wouldn't even let him take the drug test cuz they assumed he would fail it or somehow cheat it.

    All u had to say was, 'no he's not suspended hes fighting for elite xc on the 14th. That commission shit got cleared up'.

    It would be dangerous to put Diaz on network tv... unless they taped his middle finger to his palm
