The following fighters are scheduled to appear for hearings in front of the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) on Thursday:
- Nate Diaz
- Jon Jones
- Brock Lesnar
Diaz is in trouble for his involvement in the UFC 202 pre-fight press conference melee involving Conor McGregor back in August. McGregor was fined $75,000 and 50 hours of community service for throwing water bottles and an energy drink at Diaz’s team during the press conference. McGregor has refused to pay the fine and is fighting the decision in court.
Jon Jones, as we wrote about earlier, is expected to formally accept his one year suspension retroactive to July 6, 2016, the day his positive drug test results were received, and he will not be fined.
Lesnar is likely facing the same type of punishment as Jones for failing multiple drug tests related to his fight against Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in July.
The hearing will take place at 9 AM PST from the Grant Sawyer Building in Las Vegas, Nevada.
