Promoters and fighters from around the world of mixed martial arts lit social media on fire when it was revealed that Nick Diaz received a five year suspension. It seemed as if Nevada State Athletic Commission dealt Diaz his suspension for failing just one of his three UFC 183 post-fight drug tests. It wasn’t long before fans and fighters were rallying their followers to get them to sign an official White House petition to lift the ban of Diaz.
Just a couple weeks after it’s getting created, there are already 59,133 signatures! Everyone from Demetrious Johnson to Ronda Rousey have signed it— make sure you do the same! Diaz recently took to Instagram to get his followers to do the deed:
Need all my supporters to sign my petition #legalizediaz #mma #wardiaz https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/lift-nsac-ban-mma-fighter-nick-diaz
Even if you are not a fan of Diaz or the way he approaches fights, make sure to sign to show disproval of how NSAC abused their power. Click HERE to sign the petition!
