Nick Diaz will likely face the Nevada State Athletic Commission in April according to NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer who spoke to MMAJunkie.com about Diaz_s positive drug test following UFC 143.
Diaz, who fought Carlos Condit for the interim UFC Welterweight title and lost via decision, was popped on his test not for a PED such as Steroids, but instead for Marijuana which is deemed a drug of abuse.
Diaz could face up see his suspension last as long as one year or six months as Kizer also talked about past occurrences:
"In the past, the norm for a positive test for marijuana is six months, but we have had two repeat offenders and they both got a 12-month suspension," he said. "But that doesn_t necessarily mean that_s what will happen here."
