Nick Diaz is challenging his marijuana suspension with the hopes of fighting before the end of 2012

If time is money, then every stoner is a millionaire. On that same formula, the per capita income of Stockton, California makes it the richest city in the world. I guess Nick Diaz would be the mayor of this hypothetical version of the 209. LayzieTheSavage will be an honorary member of the political cabinet, and he'll raid it at night for sour cream and onion potato chips. A city run by Nick Diaz is change we can believe in -- then you can use the change to buy a pack of Ramen noodle and cook it with hot water from the coffee pot at your local 24-hour convenience store.

The last time Nick Diaz fought, Penn State had a controversy-free football program, the queen of disco, Donna Summers was still alive, and LMFAO was still an actual pop group. Since his positive test for marijuana metabolites after his February fight against UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit, Diaz's attorneys have been trying to infiltrate that treacherous labyrinth known as the Nevada State Athletic Commission rule book and discover a method of shortening (or even removing) his suspension. Now it appears Diaz's camp will go after the NSAC again and is seeking the 'first available court date for a review of the (NAC's) decision with the goal of getting back in the cage before the end of 2012.' Here's an excerpt from an email Ross Goodman sent to the Las Vegas Review-Journal regarding the suspension

"The (NAC) prohibits the use of marijuana before or during competition to protect fighters - to prevent them from fighting while impaired. However, Diaz's sample showed no active THC in his system but only inactive metabolites related to his much earlier medical marijuana treatment. Inactive marijuana metabolites are not a prohibited substance under the (NAC's) rules. The (NAC) has no basis in its rules for disciplining a fighter for legal use of medical marijuana outside competition. In doing so, the (NAC) acted unlawfully."

We're not sure if this legal motion will actually enable Nick Diaz to fight by the year's end, but it's a novel thought. Also, MiddleEasy has been lacking on recent Nick Diaz news -- so in order to maintain our status of 'Shill Nick Diaz website,' this article was a necessity.
