Cesar Gracie Says Nick Diaz Is The Rosa Parks Of MMA

Nick Diaz manager and head trainer Cesar Gracie talks to MMAWeekly.com about the CSAC decision to make medical marijuana a banned substance, prescription or not:

“I would hope he could stop (smoking marijuana),” he said. “I can't stop him. He's an adult man.”

“What can you do, man?” Gracie said of the CSAC policy. “Rosa Parks wasn't supposed to ride in the front of the bus. She was supposed to be in the back of that bus.

“Nick is the Rosa Parks of MMA,” he added with a laugh.
