The MMA professionals have run into trouble separately for their use of weed in the past.
Nick was famously handed a five-year suspension from entering the Octagon after several failed drug tests by the Nevada State Athletic Commission – initially they had attempted to impose a lifetime ban. The decision was not a popular one.
Meanwhile Nate was in hot water after he vaped CBD following his second bout with Conor McGregor during a press conference. Nate explained at the time he was doing so to benefit from ‘healing’ properties of the drug.
