Ariel Helwani reported on Fox Sports’ magazine show ‘UFC Tonight’ tonight that Nick Diaz and The Nevada State Athletic Commission are in talks over a settlement that could see Diaz’s ban lifted on 31st July 2016.

The original ban of 5 years and $165k was met with outrage from fans and media alike but the settlement if agreed could see the punishment for supposedly failing a drug test at UFC 183 after his bout with Anderson Silva reduced to a 18 month suspension and a $100k fine.

Helwani reported that the deal could be finalised and announced in the next few days.
