Commission to hear Lesnar, Jones and Diaz discipline cases

December 12, 2016

It appears that settlements have been brokered on behalf of 3 UFC fighters and the Nevada Athletic Commission.  MMA Fighting reports that the NAC announced Nate Diaz, Jon Jones and Brock Lesnar are scheduled to appear for hearing on their “proposed adjudication agreements” at the December 15th commission meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Jones settled with the NAC on a one year suspension which would put him back in the Octagon by July 6, 2017 at the earliest.  He also was given a one year suspension by USADA.

Diaz hearing stems from his role in the UFC 202 pre-fight press conference.

Lesnar’s complaint stems from two failed USADA drug tests after UFC 200.

The anticipated settlements reflect the fact that no one wants to test the uncertainty of the punishment that the NAC may hand out.  Conor McGregor has filed a Petition for Review of his NAC fine of $75,000.  Depending on the length of the settlements, it likely means that the fighters will be able to plan their next fights.  In the case of Lesnar, it’s not clear whether he may fight in the UFC again.
