Meanwhile, Conor McGregor may get a six-month medical suspension if it turns out he broke his left foot or ankle during their epic fight. Nate Diaz got kicked out of school for fighting and smoking weed. Now look at how he makes his living.

Nate Diaz could get suspended for cannabidiol vaping at post-McGregor presser

Nate Diaz didn’t win his epic rematch with Conor McGregor at UFC 202, but he did gain the respect of his opponent, as well as a likely third date and a lucrative payday for Saturday’s effort. However, it may be some time before we see Diaz fight again — and if so, he would have no one but himself to blame, after consuming a cannabis compound at the post-fight press conference.

The smell of marijuana was unmistakable to reporters, as was the sight of Diaz puffing on a vape pen. He explained that it contained Cannabidiol (CBD) oil, one of 113 active cannabinoids in cannabis, and one considered by many to have therapeutic medial effects.

“It helps with the healing process and inflammation, stuff like that,” Diaz told the media. “So you want to get these for before and after the fights, training. It’ll make your life a better place.”

CBD does not have psychoactive effects, unlike its better known fellow cannabinoid, THC. In any event, Diaz apparently felt he was in the clear, having already given his mandatory urine sample after the fight. Marijuana use is not allowed by the UFC during the “in-competition” period, six hours before and after a match.

The company can suspend fighters for up to a year for marijuana use, and according to MMA Fighting, it could consider Diaz’s admission, made within six hours of his UFC 202 bout, tantamount to a failed test. In addition, given that the event took place in Las Vegas, the Nevada State Athletic Commission could exert its jurisdiction and levy a punishment.

A spokesman for USADA, which helps the UFC administer its drug-testing program, told MMA Fighting, “I can confirm that USADA is aware of the situation and is currently gathering information in order to determine the next appropriate steps.” Meanwhile, Diaz’s brother Nick, an accomplished MMA fighter in his own right, was not able to be in his corner Saturday because he is already under a marijuana-related suspension from the NSAC.

Nate Diaz laughs when he thinks about marijuana’s growing popularity

Think back to 2004, the year Nate Diaz made his professional MMA debut at WEC 12.

Back then, zero states legalized marijuana for recreational use. The number of states with legalized medical marijuana was 12. Fifteen years later, 12 states have legalized recreational marijuana use. The number of states that allow medical marijuana use is now up to 21.

Of course, federal law still prohibits the use of marijuana in the U.S. But the overall public opinion on cannabis has drastically changed. Cannabidiol, the non-psychoactive component of marijuana, is all the rage right now because of its perceived health benefits. For evidence of this, look no further than the UFC’s recent multi-year partnership with Aurora Cannabis.

So, yeah, we’ve come a long way since 2004 and since that time the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency basically lost its mind over Diaz vaping CBD oil at the UFC 202 news conference in 2016.

Nate Diaz in one word: What UFC fighters think of Stockton’s finest

Diaz can only marvel and laugh at this new perception of weed.

“You know what’s crazy to me, the best part about this whole thing is … I got kicked out of school for fighting and selling weed. And now for a professional career I’m fighting and selling CBD,” Diaz told TSN’s Aaron Bronsteter on Friday. “Cannabis is coming soon.”

Diaz continued, “It all worked out. I never thought it was bad to begin with. I thought it was all positive, productive. I don’t think people should be going out and smoking weed. I don’t want to put that look out or anything. But as an athlete, I think you should be smoking some marijuana, if you choose to do something to help you get through the day, instead of sticking a bunch of steroids in your ass and taking a bunch of faulty supplements.”
