Diaz hasn’t fought since losing a unanimous decision to Anderson Silva at UFC 183 back in January 2015. But the results changed to a no contest when Silva tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs, and Diaz tested positive for marijuana. Diaz suspended for one year by the (USADA) for missing whereabouts, but he was reinstated as an eligible fighter last month.
What are your thoughts, will Nick Diaz get any penalty from the court?
