WATCH: UFC Fighters Say Take Cannabis Off The Banned List

UFC 195 is a mixed martial arts fighting event happening tonight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Speaking at a Q&A session in advance of tonight's event, UFC fighter Michael Chiesa had a very simple answer to a question about what they'd like to see changed in the regulations that govern UFC.

"Take marijuana off the banned list," he said.

Rose Namajunas, currently ranked #3 in the UFC Strawweight division, was quick to back him up as well.
