Not really true. Chris Leben has been scheduled to fight Karlos Vemola at UFC 155 for 2 months now. His suspension isn't lifted until the end of this month. Now I know this suspension was issued by the UFC, but it's really no different. Doing some quick research there are several examples of fighters being linked to fights prior to their suspensions being lifted, Stephan Bonnar and Hermes Franca for example.
Nick Diaz won't have any issues getting a license out of the CSAC once his suspension with the NSAC is expired at the start of February, it's really not an issue at all.
