Keith Kizer will no longer be involved with NSAC, the nation's most important combat sports commission, as he's stepped down to move into the Attorney General's office.

Keith Kizer will no longer be the Executive Director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, as he has stepped down to move into the Attorney General's office, where he worked prior to his move into the NSAC.

Brett Okamoto of ESPN.com had the story first on Twitter:

This is just an announcement for now, with Kizer staying in the role for a few more weeks. He'll leave his post officially on January 27. There is not yet a replacement for Kizer.

From MMA Fighting:

"It's time to move on," Kizer said in a statement, via the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "It's time to go back to being an attorney."

According to NSAC chairman Francisco Aguilar, Kizer's decision to step down was not forced, but one of his own accord. A search for Kizer's replacement is already underway.

"The board is grateful to Keith for his nearly eight years of dedicated service, which included the commission's strongest years with regard to health and safety and fiscal soundness," Aguilar said in a statement. "My fellow commissioners and I wish Keith all the best in his new role."
