According to Cesar Gracie’s Twitter account, a statement will be posted on GracieFighter.com Friday at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT regarding the future of Nick Diaz. The post was made late Thursday night.
Diaz is currently suspended until February of next year after testing positive for marijuana metabolites after his loss to Carlos Condit earlier this year. The Nevada Athletic Commission suspended him for a year and fined him a percent of his fight purse.
Diaz was expected to compete in a grappling match with Braulio Estima at the World Jiu-Jitsu Expo this past May, but the former Strikeforce welterweight champion failed to show up.
