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.
Dana has always said they won't book fights until fighters are reliscensed so Leben is pretty different with that being an internally inflicted punishment. Then again this is Dana White we're talking about.
