Nick Diaz’s NSAC hearing on hold

Former Strikeforce champion and UFC title challenger Nick Diaz will have to wait a little longer to have his day in front of the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

The Nevada attorney general revealed that the fighter’s appeal won’t proceed without a medical-marijuana card previously agreed to be admitted in the commission proceedings.

Diaz’s appeal of a suspension the NSAC issued thus has been tabled and isn’t on the agenda for the commission’s April 24 meeting in Las Vegas.
