One of the biggest signs of support for Nick Diaz so far has been from the UFC’s biggest star, bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.
Rousey took a moment during her big UFC 193 press conference to unleash her fury on the Nevada State Athletic Commission for suspending Diaz for five years and fining him $165,000. She expressed her feelings, saying that she doesn’t’ believe they should even be testing or marijuana.
It’s got to feel good when the biggest fighter in MMA comes to your defense, especially in such a public way.
Diaz didn’t let the gesture go unnoticed and took to his Twitter account to respond to Rousey having his back.

Are you surprised the UFC have yet to comment on the situation, considering they’ve commented on other situations like Jon Jones’ cocaine incident and Anderson Silva’s one year suspension.
