Diaz's lawyer files new claim, fires back at NSAC

by Damon Martin | source: mmaweekly.com

Now Goodman has fired back with a new document filed to the Attorney General’s office dated from April 11, with a response in regards to Diaz’s alleged falsification of the pre-fight questionnaire.

Goodman states that the “complaint does not allege any facts support that Diaz violated a rule.”

The document goes on to state that the “after the fact allegations impugning Diaz’s character serve to distract from the core issue that Nevada does not prohibit inactive marijuana metabolites.”

The statement once again points out, as in the original complaint, that marijuana metabolites are not a prohibited substance under the rules adapted by the Nevada State Athletic Commission from WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency).

The second part of the document filed on Wednesday answers the charge from the Attorney General’s office that Diaz lied on his original fight application filled out prior to his bout with Carlos Condit in February.

The document states “Diaz met the required standard, reasonable interpretation of commonly understood phrases to the best of his knowledge.” This is in reference to Diaz not disclosing any usage of medicinal marijuana on his pre-fight medical questionnaire.

Very interesting and creative argument. However NSAC can pretty much do what they want and make up their own rules so it will probably fail.

My understanding of his argument is that he had stopped using his medical marijuana eight days before the fight, and as such the THC would be out of his system and not be a safety/performance enhancement issue, even though it would still be detectable in his system in the form of inactive marijuana metabolites.
