Nick Diaz UFC 129Nick Diaz will be in his brother Nate’s corner when he battles Jim Miller at UFC on Fox 3 next Saturday in New Jersey.

Nick Diaz is currently under temporary suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission after testing positive for marijuana metabolites following his fight against Carlos Condit at UFC 143.

The New Jersey State Athletic Control Board (NJSACB) will not hold that against Diaz, however, as he will be allowed to obtain a corner’s license to work with his brother Nate next weekend.

“Nick will be permitted to corner his brother on 5-5,” wrote NJSACB Counsel Nick Lembo in an email to MMAWeekly.com on Thursday.

Earlier in the day when speaking to MMAWeekly.com, Diaz’s manager and trainer Cesar Gracie also confirmed that it was his belief that Nick would be allowed to corner his brother Nate in New Jersey, but they were still awaiting final word from the commission.

Now it looks like they have their answer.

Diaz actually fell prey to this situation when he was suspended back in 2007, also by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, following a positive drug test for marijuana after his fight with Takanori Gomi in Pride.

The commission then ruled they would not allow Diaz to corner his brother Nate during The Ultimate Fighter season 5 finale show in which he took on Manny Gamburyan.

This time, however, the commission in New Jersey has allowed Diaz to receive a corner license and he will be able to assist his brother Nate at UFC on Fox 3.
