Diaz's injunction denied, will have to wait

by Mike Chiappetta | source: mmafighting.com

Nick Diaz will be forced to wait at least one more week before learning about the status of his stalled mixed martial arts career.

In a Monday hearing in Clark County (Nevada) district court, judge Rob Bare denied an injunction request that would have effectively overturned his temporary suspension by the the Nevada state athletic commission, stemming from a February drug test that was positive for marijuana metabolites.

The official minutes of the hearing will not be available until Wednesday, but Judge Bare's executive assistant Tara Duenas confirmed the ruling to MMA Fighting.

NSAC executive director Keith Kizer told MMA Fighting that Diaz's hearing with his sanctioning body would be placed on the May 21 docket.

 Obviously, no one knows the exact amount, but Ross Goodman's time doesn't come cheap.

This.   For a dude talking about having no money all the time (right), he sure doesn't mind getting hosed by a lawyer.

Exactly, Nick is so paranoid about everything that he did not even notice that he was being screwed over by his own legal counsel.

As expected, Diaz's lawyer milked him for a bunch of legal fees for tilting at windmills and Nick got nothing in return.

Please. If there is any justice, the dude never gets sanctioned to do anything again.
