Why hasn’t Nick Diaz fought since 2015?
The American Mixed Martial artist hasn’t fought since 2015 as he received a ban for testing positive for Marijuana. The Nevada State Athletic Commission suspended the fighter for 5 years and fined him $165,000. The fighter was accused of consuming marijuana metabolites at UFC 183, during fight against Anderson Silva.
The ban was so serious that it wouldn’t allow him to corner his brother, Nate Diaz during UFC 196 and UFC 202. The longtime welterweight will be making a comeback after spending six years on the sidelines. It is no doubt that Nick has been working hard and hitting the gym preparing for his comeback according to his trainer, Jose Garcia.
“We are currently working to get Nick back on line,” says trainer Jose Garcia
Nick Diaz’s trainer wrote, “The general is well some y’all gossiping hoes out there need to quit that n chill,”.

He is living a life better than most of us….. we are currently working to get Nick back on line #wardiaz Diaz army stay ready. When he calls it’s war.”
