lol and you people think the Brazilian Athletic Commission is shady but the NSAC isn't?
Did they say they'd be paying him, or is it more of a "community service" bit? He also has a 2 year suspension, but lets forget that.

Probably a year if he wants it back. If he's not competing, then the blowback from rehiring the guy shouldn't be that bad. He sort of came clean at the hearing, and seems to be doing as much as he can to repair his image.

the chair basically said that they were presented with an opportunity because he no longer had his other jobs. I'm almost certain he's going to be paid, and probably agreed before the hearing that this could be a potential outcome. He won't be paid much and I doubt it will be full time, and it's for 2 years. That is a big penalty considering other fighters have been caught for steriods and come back in a year.

Well yeah he's a resilient character. I'll give him that.

Suspending someone that's already retired for 2 years isn't worth mentioning. It's like if the NFL had went ahead and suspended Ray Lewis after the Superbowl for using Deer Antler Spray. No fucks given, it's irrelevant.

Paid or not it's irrelevant, it's a farce to have someone that's been caught using multiple times as a representative of the commission in any capacity especially one about educating anyone about drug usage.

You should advise all the courts that have drunk drivers talk to teens of how horrible a job they're doing.
