Put Joe Rogan on the ever growing list of MMA personalities who are not too pleased with the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

During a recent edition of his podcast, Rogan made it clear that he believes the commission is in the wrong.

"They f**ked him! They f**ked him raw and they f**ked him out of $160,000 and five years of his career," Rogan said.

Rogan went on to explain how the commission overlooked the two other tests that were much more reliable and taken within the same time as the failed test.

"He passed two tests, two WADA tests and failed one from some f**king local lab. And the local labs numbers were off the charts! So two out of three tests he passed. .They weren't even willing to take into consideration the other tests because they didn't perform them."

Rogan is just one of many others who are coming out in opposition of the NAC. Ronda Rousey recently stated her support for Diaz at the UFC 193 press conference.

"It's so unfair if one person tests for steroids that could actually really hurt a person and the other person smokes a plant that makes them happy. He gets suspended for five years, whereas the guy that could hurt someone gets a slap on the wrist. It's not fair. It's not fair at all," Rousey said.

UFC Fighters Henry Cejudo and Aljamain Sterling have taken things a step further, refusing to fight in Nevada due to the state's ruling.

Nick Diaz was suspended for five years and fined $160,000 for the failed post fight drug test. The positive sample showed that Diaz had well over 300ng/mL of marijuana metabolites in his system after his fight at UFC 183 with Anderson Silva.
