Anderson Silva got handed a lengthy suspension today at his Nevada State Athletic Commission hearing. Nick Diaz, not so much.
Diaz was originally scheduled to attend the same hearing as Silva, which took place on Thursday. Before the hearing though Diaz’s team filed for another extension due to scheduling reasons regarding his lawyer.
The extension was granted and now is expected to take place on the week of September 13.
Silva was handed a one year suspension and the outcome of their bout, Silva winning by decision, was overturned to a NC.
Diaz was busted for having marijuana metabolites in his system and will meet with the commission to see what his penalty will be.
