NEVADA: Ronda Rousey is standing up to the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) after they decided on Monday to suspend UFC fighter Nick Diaz for five years for a positive marijuana test.
“I’m sorry, but it’s so not right for him to be suspended five years for marijuana,” Rousey said on Wednesday at a UFC press conference in Melbourne, Australia.
Diaz’s suspension is a result of him testing positive for marijuana for a third time. Lots of people think the suspension is ridiculous. But Rousey, a close friend of Diaz’s, took it one step further on Wednesday, saying she doesn’t think marijuana use should be penalized at all.
