Keith Kizer: The official fine to Nick Diaz was $79,500


Initially, after Diaz failed a drug test due to marijuana metabolites, the Nevada State Athletic Commission suspended him one year and fined him 30 percent of his fight purse.

But NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer today confirmed with the fine was more than the originally reported $60,000.

Diaz (27-8 MMA, 7-5 UFC) who announced his retirement after the fight, was paid a disclosed flat sum of $200,000 for his interim title fight with Condit (28-5 MMA, 5-1 UFC). He lost the bout, which took place Feb. 4 in Las Vegas, via unanimous decision.

A 30 percent fine on his $200,000 purse would've added up to $60,000. But Kizer said the actual fine was $79,500.

Stopped reading @ expecting Diaz fans to do that. These people, like Diaz himself, are victims you see. Nothing is their fault and the man is out to get them. Rules and laws don't matter, they are bullshit and put in place to keep them down.It's the same sad shit with these people.

With 80k he could've bought a lot of medicinal marijuana after the fight. <br /><br />I don't think it's a performance enhancing drug but he knew in advance he'd be tested for it.I thought he won that fight, too! Looks like he got two bad decisions :/

All you fucking idiots crying about the fine need to grow up. When Nick signs on the dotted line he is agreeing to the rules (which consist of KNOWN penalties). He consciously broke the rules he agreed to and was fined. He should consider himself lucky his employers dont fire his ass on the spot for failing a drug test like 99% of all other businesses do that have drug testing.

Love watching Nick Diaz fight, but would be so proud of him if he told them to go fuck themselves and never fought again.Someone needs to stand up and make some noise about this total bullshit.
