Nick Diaz is a free man in Nevada. Again.

Diaz, according to sources, recently reached an agreement with the Nevada Athletic Commission, which now frees him to participate in all combat sport-related activities in the state once again.

Per the terms of his settlement stemming from a controversial 2015 failed drug test, Diaz was required to pay the commission $100,000 along with serving an 18-month suspension. However, since Diaz didn't pay the fine in full, he was barred from cornering his brother Nate in his mega-fights against Conor McGregor back in March and August.

Also, according to the Jan. 2016 settlement, Diaz had a deadline of Dec. 1, 2016 to pay the remainder of his fine ($75,000), though, it's unclear if he would have received further punishment had he not reached an agreement before last week's deadline. Regardless, Diaz avoided further issues by coming to terms with the commission and is now allowed to resume cornering fighters and competing in the state.

Terms of the agreement were not available at this time.

The 33-year-old hasn't fought since Jan. 2015, and as of right now, has no future fights booked.
