Hell must have frozen over, because bitter rivals Floyd Mayweather (pictured) and Ronda Rousey finally agree on something – the Nevada Athletic Commission is wrong for suspending Nick Diaz five years following his third infraction for marijuana.
“Huh?” Mayweather responded in a video blog posted on his YouTube channel after hearing of Diaz’s ridiculous ban. “Man, let that man smoke weed and enjoy his life!”
Rousey came to Diaz’s defense last week during the UFC 193 press conference in Melbourne. Among the many things the reigning UFC bantamweight champion provokingly stated during her extended rant was that Diaz shouldn’t be suspended for a drug that isn’t performance-enhancing. In fact, Rousey said the NAC shouldn’t even be testing for marijuana in the first place.
In addition to his five-year banishment, Diaz was also docked 33 percent of his $500,000 UFC 183 fight purse.
It’s interesting Mayweather is even discussing drug tests conducted under the NAC’s watch considering he’s caught some heat for reportedly taking a banned IV after weighing in for May’s blockbuster boxing match against Manny Pacquiao.
Regardless, Diaz is right. Marijuana makes people happy. How else can you explain Mayweather and Rousey finally agreeing on something?
They can just agree to disagree on everything else…
