Nick Diaz Fan Attempts To Raise Money To Cover Fighter’s Six-Figure Fine

Nick Diaz has the best fans in the world.

The Stockton California native was handed an unprecedented 5 year suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission last month, after he tested positive for marijuana metabolites for the third time. Not only was the UFC combatant given a career threatening ban, he was also slapped with a hefty fine which amounted to roughly $165,000.

Shortly after the news broke, one Nick Diaz fan started a White House petition to get the suspension lifted. Earlier this week that petition reached the 100,000 signature mark. Thus the Barack Obama administration must now issue an official response to the matter.

That success obviously inspired another fan, who has decided to tackle the monetary element of Diaz’ harsh punishment.

According to MMAJunkie, Butch Carroll has started a GoFundMe page in the hope that he can raise enough cash to pay that tasty six-figure penalty.

As of the time of writing the page has received donations to the tune of $355 dollars.
