Complete UFC 196 Medical Suspensions Released

ufc 196

The Nevada Athletic Commission might just have a sense of humor after all.

Despite handing down some career-ending suspensions, the one levied on Nate Diaz is almost comical.

The NAC has suspended Diaz – medically, of course – until April 20 after his win over Conor McGregor this past weekend at UFC 196. Diaz, who has made it clear he uses marijuana, is suspended until 4/20, which is a notable time in the world of weed users.

Diaz isn’t expected to compete again for a while after making over $600,000 in base salary and fight-night bonuses for his win.

Nate Diaz suspended 45 days with no contact for 30 days for right eye laceration
