This is either some big joke by the Nevada Athletic Commission or it's literally one of the biggest coincidences ever. It's pretty well documented that Nate Diaz and his brother Nick are both fans of marijuana.

And with the legalization of weed in a lot of places within the United States, as well as the decriminalization of the substance, there is beginning to be less and less of a reason to frown upon folks who partake in the recreational activity of smoking a J or hitting a bong.

But after Nate's submission victory over Conor McGregor at UFC 196, the aforementioned NAC decided to make Nate Diaz's medical suspension go until April 20th, better known as 4/20 by stoners everywhere.

Nate is from Stockton in Northern California, and I know they have some pretty dank weed up there. Blaze up, Nate!

All kidding aside, here is the entire list of suspensions below...

Ilir Latifi: Requires x-ray on left second toe, if positive then requires clearance by doctor or no contest until 09/05

Siyar Bahadurzada: Requires doctor's clearance on jaw or no contest until 09/05; minimum suspension no contest until 03/27, no contact until 03/20

Brandon Thatch: Requires x-ray on left foot, if positive then requires clearance by doctor or no contest until 09/05; minimum suspension no contest until 04/20, no contact until 04/05

Nordine Taleb: Requires x-ray or MRI on left knee, also requires doctor's clearance or no contest until 09/25

Marcelo Guimaraes: Requires x-ray or MRI on left knee, also requires doctor's clearance or no contest until 09/25; minimum suspension no contest until 04/20, no contact until 04/05

Nate Diaz: Suspended until 04/20, no contact until 04/05 due to laceration over right eye

Erick Silva: Suspended until 04/20, no contact until 04/05

Chas Skelly: Suspended until 04/20, no contact until 04/05

Julian Erosa: Suspended until 04/20, no contact until 04/05

Valentina Shevchenko: Suspended until 04/05, no contact until 03/27 due to left eye laceration

Justin Salas: Suspended until 04/05, no contact until 03/27 due to laceration under right eye

What do you think?

Did the Nevada Athletic Commission have a little fun here or was it just a coincidence?
