If they don't re-license him then he either is forced to retire or he has go to Japan and fight.

What I'm saying is, there's a difference between PR and promotion, he doesn't need PR to hype his fights, but he does need promotion in order to fight. The fact Overeem is being allowed to be promoted and Nick is not basically tells you that the NSAC isn't happy with him.
It isn't like Nick is going to get some lifetime ban. If he did Dana wouldn't honor that bullshit and would just take him to a different state.

Nick's suspension will be up in February. He is currently training and will be ready to fight. The UFC will make a matchup right after his suspension is up. And many people will be interested and he will make good money.
