UFC veteran Nick Diaz named guest judge for California cannabis contest

New, 7 comments

I'm sure the "tyrants" at Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) will appreciate this.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight Nick Diaz, who was suspended from mixed martial arts (MMA) for a drug test he may or may not have failed, is making good use of the five years he'll be riding the pine, or however long it takes him to appeal.

Starting with his stint as guest judge at the upcoming XO Gold Cup Cannabis Contest, which takes place from Oct. 3-4 at the National Orange Show Fairgrounds in San Bernardino, Calif., and also features a special appearance by UFC lightweight Nate Diaz.

Check out the official website here.

First prize? A six-inch, 24k gold rolling tray, along with a class ring and product back, valued at over $12,000. Sorry, but you must have a valid California doctor's recommendation to use medicinal marijuana to even be considered, as well as a valid ID.

Here's a pic of the goods:

Nate better watch out for that second-hand smoke, he's got a pretty important fight just around the corner (more on that here).
