Floyd Mayweather On Nick Diaz: ‘Let That Man Smoke Weed’
The highly flawed but unambiguously influential Floyd Mayweather Jr. isn’t fighting anymore, but that doesn’t mean he has gone away for good. Mostly that’s inevitably going to be for the worse. But this week, it wasn’t such a bad thing.
Mayweather’s uncle Jeff asked the five-division champion in a video posted Monday what he thought about UFC fighter Nick Diaz receiving a five-year suspension last week for testing positive for marijuana for a third time.
“Huh?” Mayweather responded. “Man, let that man smoke weed [and] enjoy his life.”
The decision has led to intense criticism of the seemingly arbitrary manner in which the Nevada State Athletic Commission doles out punishments, including from the UFC’s most popular fighter: Ronda Rousey.
It took a while, but it looks like Mayweather and Rousey have finally found something the two of them can agree on.
