Wand, Henderson, Minotouro, Diaz suspended...Now What?

By Graciemag

Following Pride events may be affected

As it is closely eyeing the American MMA market, Pride must more and more adapt to the conditions imposed by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. This means the Japanese promoters cannot ignore the decisions taken by the commissioners, even regarding events held in Japan.

With that in consideration, Nobuyuki Sakakibara and his crew are looking at a major headache for the assembling of the lineup of the next event scheduled April 4th. This is because the NSAC suspended some of their greatest stars until April 11. Wanderlei, Rogério Minotouro and Dan Henderson (with a hand injury) are those suspended, the same story with Takanori Gomi. Nick Diaz suffered a facial injury and must be on vacation till May.

Sakakibara has not yet spoken about the suspensions.
