Nick Diaz has been on the dispensary circuit while taking some time away from fighting. He gets paid really nicely for going to 420 events, dispensary openings, and such. Those appearance fees add up, but whenever he’s trying to mingle with the crowd and make some dough, USADA keeps showing up to drug test him, and he’s getting sick and tired of it.
“They know where I’m at though. Somebody over there is not doing their job. I mean realistically, they showed up to one of my dispensary signings. Like I said, I gotta do what I can with what I have to work with when I’m not fighting. The whole cannabis industry thing is a hit right now, so yeah, I’ll book an appearance over there and I’ll go and smoke a bunch of weed and it’s a good time. So of course, word is out I’m gonna be here, they show up.”
Here’s the full interview with Nick Diaz:
Nick is 26-9 with two no contests and it’s been over two years since his last fight, against Anderson Silva. Both Diaz brothers are fan favorites, but also very polarizing figures in the MMA world. A lot of people are turned off by their antics or attitudes, but that’s also the same reason that a lot of people love them. At the end of the day, they’re both very solid fighters, who are arguably both a lot better than their records might demonstrate.
Are you ready for a Nick Diaz comeback, and who do you think he should fight if he does come back?
The crazy fight would be to meet Conor at WW and finish off what Nate started, it would be an easy fight to sell and not even the craziest matchmaking we’ve ever seen, although Diaz would have a huge size advantage over Conor.
Here’s a look at the top welterweights in the UFC right now, who would you put up against Nick Diaz if you wanted a great fight, and who would you put up if you wanted to sell as many PPV’s as possible? The UFC matchmakers are only going to be asking one of those questions these days, but we’ll still ask both.
Or should he fight someone from a different weight class? Let us know your pick.
