MMA fighter Nate Diaz will not be punished by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for vaping Cannabidoil following his loss at UFC 202, reports fellow fighter Arial Helwani.
The 31-year-old California native is seen in this video vaping CBD while giving an interview after his loss to Conor Mcgregor at UFC 202. The video led many to wonder if the Nevada State Athletic Commision (NSAC) would hand down a suspension to the fighter for his admitted use of a banned substance.
It looks like Nate Diaz waited until the Nevada State Athletic commission did their final drug test before hitting the vape. Both Diaz and Mcgregor’s UFC 202 drug tests came back clean, which is good enough for the state of Nevada.
Just because Diaz has been cleared by the Nevada Athletic commission however does not mean he is home free. The United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) is still investigating the incident.
Nate Diaz could still be punished for ‘admitting use’ during the six hours after the fight that the USADA considers “In competition” but it is very unlikely.
