Nick Diaz Turned Down Rematch with Robbie Lawler

Nick Diaz hasn’t fought since January 2015. He was given a lifetime ban by the Nevada State Athletic Commission after testing positive to marijuana metabolites for the third time in his career at UFC 183. The suspension was later reduced to five years and he was levied a fine of $165,000. That suspension was later reduced to 18-months and the fine lowered to $100,000. His suspension officially ended in August 2016.

Diaz is really starting to paint an ugly picture of himself. I really like the guy, but he can't afford to turn down every fight that is offered to him

I know he and his brother talk of the big money fights and wanting to make what the other fighters do, but he needs to prove himself here. A year off has caused problems for a lot of athletes in the past

Diaz has been back almost 6 months and he still hasn't fought. I am surprised he continues to turn everything down.

Gotta love the ufc. They give a slap on the wrist for fighters testing positive for steroids (Anderson Silva) and absolutely crucify you if you test positive for weed. I didn't know weed was a performance enhancing drug. Beyond that Diaz has been digging himself into a hole as of lately.

Guy just cant stop getting blazed huh? And is it me or is turning down a fight like the most cowardly thing you could do in the fight world?
