Nick Diaz's attorney Ross Goodman spoke to MMAFighting.com this week after the decision was handed down to Diaz from the NSAC that he would be suspended for 12 months and fined for testing positive for marijuana metabolites and his client isn't happy with the way things played out:

“Nick was disappointed obviously, but he's in good spirits. He's in good spirits in general. He knows the truth of it. He knows he didn't lie to the commission. He knows he didn't mislead the commission and he understands he did everything he was told to do legally. He got a physician's statement, he was qualified to use it, he understands the rules do not require metabolites as a violation.”

Goodman also pointed out that Diaz is not retired and plans on fighting in the future:

“Nick's sworn in his affidavit he's not retired. He's only 28 years old, he's at the top of his game. I don't want to speak for Nick, but I think he's looking forward to getting back in the cage as soon as he can.”
