UFC 129 – Nate Diaz refused entry into Canada today, although Rory MacDonald fight still on

TUF 5 winner, Nate Diaz was refused entry into the country earlier today, apparently the problem comes from a situation Diaz got into back in 2006, resulting in him being charged with disturbing the peace. For some reason Canadian officials decided to pick up on the incident earlier today despite four separate trips to the Canada last year.

Diaz’ manager, Cesar Gracie did confirm that he will be fine to face top welterweight prospect, Rory MacDonald next month at UFC 129 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Speaking via MMAFighting.com, Gracie said:

“Having to jump through some hoops but [Diaz] will be able to make it. He was in Canada four times last year.”
