PostSubject: Henry Cejudo refuses to fight in Nevada in light of Nick Diaz's suspension   Wed Sep 16, 2015 3:48 pm

Quote :
Support for Nick Diaz continues to mount.

First, it was the tweets. Then Ronda Rousey. Now, Olympic gold medalist turned UFC flyweight Henry Cejudo has taken things one step further.

In a letter to MMAFighting.com, Cejudo's manger Bill McFarlane wrote that Cejudo will not be fighting in Nevada anymore in light of Monday's news.

Below is the letter in its entirety:

I am absolutely appalled at how the NAC handled the Nick Diaz matter. The issue here is not the magnitude of the penalties assessed to Nick Diaz, it is the process, or lack thereof, in determining Nick Diaz’s guilt or innocence. Significant discrepancies existed between the test samples, and the NAC has an absolute obligation to resolve those discrepancies before the penalty phase of the disciplinary hearing was heard. What the NAC did was ignore due process and go straight to the penalty phase.

Forget the facts and existence of evidence, let’s get down to the business of punishment. For the NAC to ignore the negative test results from Sports Medicine Research and Testing Laboratories (SMRTL), a WADA-approved testing facility specializing in the detection of performance enhancing drugs (PEDs), in favor of a "questionable" result from a non-approved and non-specialized PED facility is simply astonishing. For Chairman Aguilar to also state, "I think we do have a positive test today," is an appalling disregard of the full and careful consideration of all the facts. I believe it is an abuse of power under the color of authority, and a direct affront to the very concept and practice of due process. For NAC to further justify their decision based on the assertion that they don’t have the budget to use a WADA-approved testing facility is like saying, justice and due process only applies if it comes at a deep discount and is affordable. The NAC decision does not appear to be based on fact or evidence, but on emotional arrogance.

I sincerely hope that the UFC enters the dialogue on this issue. If not publicly, then privately.
continued...

I think all fighters should really get behind this and I agree that the UFC should really see what they can do to "overturn" or do something to help Nick with this absurd situation.
