Responding to a reporter's question about the hardships she endured early in her MMA career when she was dirt-poor and living out of her car, Rousey flipped the question to Diaz's pot-related suspension like the judo master that she is. "There’s NO reason that we should be tested for weed. Nick is a really close and dear friend of mine so of course I’m going to defend him. "If one person tests for steroids, that could actually hurt a person, and the other person smokes a plant that makes him happy, and he gets suspended for five years! I’m sure if he’d had the choice he would have given him a lot less.
"It really pales in comparison to how unfair it is that Nick [Diaz] got a five-year suspension," Rousey said. Whereas a guy who could hurt someone gets a slap on the wrist. I don’t think marijuana should be a part of the conversation at all.
