The rumors have been swirling that someone on the UFC 143 card failed his post-fight drug test. Now we have confirmation via an email from Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer that SOMEONE on the card did indeed fail a drug test.Here's an email sent from the NSAC commission to members of the MMA media:
From: Keith Kizer
Date: Thu, Feb 9, 2012 at 12:16 PM
Subject: UFC 143

Thank you for the many email and phone calls. I am still waiting for all the steroid and drug test results to come back. We did have at least one positive test. I will send out an email later today on that matter.
Keith Kizer
Executive Director
Nevada Athletic Commission

Things to keep in mind:
There is no indication as to who is the fighter in question.
There is no indication as to whether the drug test failure is for performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) or drugs of abuse.

But this does tie in neatly to the rumors that have swirled around the on-and-off nature of the Nick Diaz vs. Carlos Condit (http://www.sbnation.com/mma/fight/1491/ufc-143-carlos-condit-vs-nick-diaz) rematch.


Here's another clue for you all, SI reporter Josh Gross (https://twitter.com/#!/JoshGrossESPN/statuses/167675612113281024) tweeted this earlier:

Dana White 'Beyond Disappointed' in Nick Diaz

UFC President Dana White has weighed in on Nick Diaz's failed drug test with a prepared statement that's tamer than most UFC fans would probably expect from White.

"I am beyond disappointed that he tested positive for marijuana," White said in the statement that the UFC distributed to the media. "It is now in the hands of the Nevada State Athletic Commission."

The prepared statement comes across like something a PR staffer would write for White, not like something White would say himself: It doesn't contain any F-bombs, and it doesn't say anything about what this does for Diaz's future with the UFC. White has also been silent on Twitter, where he usually doesn't hesitate to mix it up with fans when controversy explodes in the UFC.

But the way White is responding may demonstrate just how much he's seething that Diaz continues to refuse to "play the game" the right way. White may be so angry about Diaz's unprofessionalism that he doesn't want to say a word because he knows his anger may lead him to take things too far.

Because this is Diaz's second positive marijuana test, the Nevada State Athletic Commission may suspend him for a full year. That would take any decision about what to do with Diaz out of White's hands until February of 2013. By then, White may have simmered down long enough that he's willing to give Diaz another chance.

Or by then the UFC's welterweight division may have moved on without Diaz, and White may decide to let Diaz go entirely, and let him be a disappointment for some other promotion.

I don't get it.
You're Nick Diaz (http://www.sbnation.com/mma/fighter/122575/nick-diaz). You're a 28-year-old man who has won 10 fights in a row. You've conquered Strikeforce (http://www.sbnation.com/mma/promotion/strikeforce), a second tier promotion, admittedly enough, but one you've basically run roughshod through. The UFC, the biggest fight promotion in the world, comes calling and wants you to come fight their biggest drawing champion without having to jump through hoops to do it.
Just sign a deal, do some press and fight for the title.
But you screw it up. You miss multiple flights booked just to get you from one city to the next and you miss a pair of press conferences that piss the boss off enough to take you out of the main event. Bye-bye title shot, hello undercard.
The fight game is wacky, though, and circumstances arise that you end up back in the main event. This time, all measures are taken to make sure you don't screw anything up, and you manage to get through just fine. You even win your fight in impressive fashion, all the while building a bigger fanbase through your "wild" antics and devil may care attitude.
Then you get your title shot given back to you, despite all the nonsense and headache you caused before. Forgive and forget and all that.
But, once again, the wacky fight game throws a few curveballs.

http://cdn1.sbnation.com/images/blog/star-divide.v5e9d7f1.jpgThe champion, Georges St. Pierre (http://www.sbnation.com/mma/fighter/122591/georges-st-pierre), gets injured, leaving you with a fight against fellow top contender Carlos Condit (http://www.sbnation.com/mma/fighter/122573/carlos-condit) at UFC 143 (http://www.sbnation.com/mma/fight-card/92159/ufc-143-diaz-vs-condit). You accept and while tales run rampant that you missed another flight or two, you manage to get to the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas for what you hope will be a scrap.
When you don't get one, instead ending up frustrated and feeling lost, you quit. You complain that it's all not fair and you were screwed and he just ran and blah, blah, blah. You take your ball and go home, presumably leaving your employers in the lurch, the same folks who went to bat for you and put up with your constant headaches, navigating every road block you threw in their path.
Then to top it all off, unbelievably enough, you fail the drug test. For marijuana of all things.
This is nothing new for you. In fact, you've frequently bragged about your ability to beat the tests commissions administer. You've made it no secret that you partake in pot and while opinions vary on whether that's problematic or not, there is absolutely no doubt that it's unacceptable to fail a drug test for a fight in the UFC.
Because those are the rules. Like them or not, they're the rules, ones you refuse to abide by.
I don't get it.
The folks at UFC catered to your every whim. They did anything they had to do to make sure they had you fighting inside the Octagon. You were paid an absurd amount of money -- again, despite not performing all the duties written into your contract -- and even though you had just threw a fit and quit your career, they were ready to give you an immediate rematch. They were going to put everything else on hold for you once again just to give you what you wanted.
But you pissed it all away. All because you couldn't stay away from cannabis.
The UFC is now in a position that will inevitably make them look bad. After all, they've only caved to your every demand already. Now that you've disrespected the hell out of them by throwing it back in their face with your inability to stay away from your recreational drugs, they have to figure out how to handle you.
An early statement from UFC President Dana White makes obvious that they're not entirely sure how. Not yet, anyway.
I don't get it.
Was it not enough? Was a fat new contract and immediate title shot not enough? Was it not enough to have the love of a legion of fans who are still throwing their support behind you despite your repeated inability to show even a modicum of respect to anyone other than your family and the members of your fight team?
Is getting high that important to you?
I don't get it.
Speaking of the fans, there are plenty of them telling me I should cut you some slack. "It's just weed," they say. "It's not like it's a huge deal."
Exactly. If it wasn't such a big deal, you should have been able to put the bong down for a while so you could take care of business at your place of employment. They only made sacrifice after sacrifice for you, taking P.R. hit after P.R. hit just to get you back inside the cage. They benefited from it, of course, but there has to be a line in the sand.
And you've been firmly on the other side this entire time, defiant until the very end.
It's time for that to stop. It's time for you grow up and get your sh*t together. Because, frankly, it's not fair to the UFC, it's not fair to your opponents, and, most importantly, it's not fair to the fans.
We're talking about weed here, man. That's all. Just some pot that you couldn't stay away from.
I don't get it.

mischien was dit dana,s plan al van te voren en dat ie er daarom zo cool over blijft en een boodschap naar de smokende fighters wil sturen .
dana zat al eerder niet om diaz te springen ook omdat hij 2 strikes heb en als diaz nog 1tje pakt is het 3 strikes out en krijg je minimal 10 jaar

Wiet is "decriminalized" (oftewel: gedecriminaliseerd) in California las ik. En wat jullie hier ook zeggen, dat het totaal niet bevorderend is voor iemands prestaties ben ik het helemaal mee eens. Wat ongelofelijk zonde en dom dit, omdat hij dit had kunnen weten. Opzich ben ik het net als jullie en Diaz eens dat een jointje roken totaal iets anders is dan steroids. En even serieus, als zijn partij tegen Gomi is omgezet tot een no contest na een win, wat wordt er nu gedaan dan met een loss? Als het echt eerlijk is wordt dit ook een no contest, want in principe heeft dit niets met het resultaat te maken.

Nick Diaz Is to Blame, But So Are Meaningless Commission Marijuana Tests

Let's establish two facts from the outset. First, Nick Diaz's use of marijuana to the extent it produced a positive drug test result is irresponsible. Second, the urinalysis test regarding marijuana consumption used by athletic commissions (ostensibly) designed to protect the health and safety of fighters does neither and is little more than kabuki theater.
The UFC has every right to be disappointed with Nick Diaz. They invested huge sums of money and other promotional resources to push him, his fight and build him as a pay-per-view attraction. As incoherent and insane as some of the rules may be (more on that in a minute), he accepted the handshake. That meant not only fighting Condit, it also included media promotion and some measure of clean living. For him to test positive on the urinalysis - which could've resulted in promotional disaster for the UFC had he actually defeated Condit at UFC 143 - is the height of unprofessionalism and represents a total failure as a partner to the UFC.

But it's also true, and perhaps more important, that the urinalysis test (MMAFighting.com has confirmed Nevada uses urinalyses to test fighters for various banned substances, including marijuana) used by the Nevada State Athletic Commssion (NSAC) to gauge marijuana use does not perform the function it purports to do.


"[Marijuana] is banned because of the damage it does to the person taking it," said Keith Kizer, Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Officer to the L.A. Times. "It could make you lethargic, slow your reflexes, and those are dangerous things in a combat sport."

Kizer's argument is technically true, but incredibly misleading. In order to have any relevance in the combat sports context - remember, Diaz is medically cleared to use it in his personal life by a licensed medical practitioner - Kizer's argument has to apply to a fighter's state during sanctioned competition. After all, it's fair to argue no fighter should be competing under the euphoric effects of marijuana.

Here's the problem: urinalysis tests are incapable of determining when a person used. According to drug use expert, author and Senior Editor of Reason magazine Jacob Sullum, it is scientific fact urinalyses only determine that someone used, not when.

"[The urinalysis] shows that the drug has been consumed at some point," Sullum told MMAFighting.com, "but it doesn't pinpoint when and the problem arises mainly with marijuana because there's a very long detection window for marijuana ranging anywhere from a few days up to a month after somebody has smoked a joint depending on how heavy of a smoker they are, it can be detected for quite a long time after they're not high anymore so it's not a measure of intoxication or impairment, it's an indicator that they have consumed marijuana at some point in the past possibly, quite a time ago."

"If you're doing it with urine," Sullum continued, "it's not going to be a measurement of current intoxication or impairment simply because what you're measuring is metabolized after the marijuana is processed. So just by the nature of the test, it's never going to be the test of somebody's current condition."

If a urinalysis can't determine current levels of impairment, what can? Sullum says no method is perfect, but blood tests (generally, a more expensive proposition) is a significantly more accurate measurement. "[The blood test] is measuring THC levels in the blood so that's a better indicator, just like with alcohol, you want to know if somebody had a drink recently and how much have they consumed, you can get an idea of that by looking at the alcohol in their blood because that's what's affecting them right now. If there's THC in their blood above a certain cutoff, that's affecting you right now. If it's in your urine, it's not. Your urine is not circulated through your body so the relevant concern is what's actually affecting you now. Blood is a much more accurate measure of that".

What's worse, the urinalysis puts a heavy burden on the marijuana user over other banned substances - like cocaine - that pose greater health risks but have shorter detection windows. "Yeah, it's a shorter window for other drugs," said Sullum. "Marijuana is unusual in that it's such a long window but even with other drugs, it can be a day or two or three depending upon the drug."

Nick Diaz's problem isn't that he used marijuana in too close a proximity to the fight. By the commission's own perverse enforcement system, it's that he's got the wrong drug of choice.
It is more understandable your standard employer would use a urina
lysis as a screen for potential hires. All they want is peace of mind you're not using drugs. They don't need to know if when you took it you were or weren't high. That level of specificity is overkill.

Athletic commissions not only have the need, they have the responsibility. When commissions use urinalysis to measure impairment of marijuana and other banned substances, no one's health is protected, no one's safety is at issue. In administering these tests, they become less a governing body tasked with regulating the sport and more just vice cops regulating personal behavior unrelated to occupational demands.

Blame Nick Diaz all you like. He knew what he was getting into. The larger issue, however, isn't about him. It's a question of the efficacy of athletic commission protocol and the damaging penalties they hand out when fighters run afoul of demonstrably meaningless screens.

Talk about reefer madness.

dat hij psyhisch niet helemaal 100% is had ik al een tijdje door ja.. maar ik zou dan denken dat een fatsoenlijke psycholoog beter voor hem is dan een wiet "behandeling" lol... maarja what do i know, ben geen arts

maar als hij echt een licentie en dokter verklaring heeft dan moet dat toch geen probleem zijn? vechters die volgens medische redenen aan de testosterone zitten worden toch ook niet geschorst... persoonlijk denk ik dat het BS is en dat hij gewoon van een jointje houdt maarja.. ik weet verder niet precies hoe dat zit met die schorsingen en regels bij de athletic commisions

Het probleem is dat Diaz in CaliforniŽ een licentie heeft om wegens medische redenen wiet te roken. Federaal is het echter nogsteeds verboden.

okeeee.....

het is wetenschappeijk aangetoond dat THC je testosteron productie naar beneden breng en je oestrogeen aanmaak omhoog.....

Daarbij heb ik zelf de ervaring....na een filmpje van Rogan en eddy Bravo gerpobeerd.... dat je met Grappling als je licht onder invloed bent....je losser beweegt en je creativiteit in reacties omhoog kan gaan...... wel verzuur je fucking snel...maar als je puur op routine en technieken gaat rollen....mwa best grappig... Maar verwacht aub geen doorzettingsvermoegen als je conditioneel stuk gaat....want dat echt niet hahaha

Het gaat hier om iets heel anders denk ik.....In de regelementen staat dat je er niet positief op mag testen.....
Zou hij wel een medicinaal papiertje hebben dan zou hij dat met UFC of NASC moeten overleggen en toestemming vragen...
als die er niet is en je wordt positief getest is het toch duidelijk.....????

testosteron wordt als voorbveeld gegeven, vind i erg omstreden....maar je kuntr ook voorbeeld astma inhalator noemen....

Diaz is gewoon door het ijs gezakt.....

f it was up to Ultimate Fighting Championship (http://www.sbnation.com/mma/promotion/ufc) (UFC) Interim Welterweight (http://www.sbnation.com/mma/welterweight) Champion Carlos Condit (http://www.sbnation.com/mma/fighter/122573/carlos-condit), his next fight would be a score-settling rematch against Nick Diaz (http://www.sbnation.com/mma/fighter/122575/nick-diaz).Not because the mixed martial majority was butt-hurt over "The Natural Born Killer's" unanimous decision win against the Stockton slugger (they were), but because "he wanted it," (http://www.mmamania.com/2012/2/8/2783963/ufc-summons-carlos-condit-las-vegas-announcement-nick-diaz-potential-rematch) and was ready to prove that he could do it again.Hopefully he still feels that way in 2013 after Diaz finishes up what's expected to be a yearlong suspension for drugs of abuse.The 170-pound trash-talker was popped for "marijuana metabolites" (http://www.mmamania.com/2012/2/10/2789451/ufc-143-nick-diaz-drug-test-keith-kizer-nsac-mma) following the UFC 143 (http://www.sbnation.com/mma/fight-card/92159/ufc-143-diaz-vs-condit) pay-per-view (PPV) event back on Feb. 4, 2012, in Las Vegas, Nevada, effectively eliminating himself from a Condit ematch as well as the division title chase.Live by the sword, die by the sword, according to Condit. Hear that and more from the Interim champ (via SI.com (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2012/writers/ben_fowlkes/02/13/carlos-condit-reaction-nick-diaz/index.html#ixzz1mHRMx4VF)) after the jump.

"I don't care. The thing about it is, it's something they test for. It's against the Nevada [State] Athletic Commission [rules]. I don't really consider it to be a performance-enhancing drug, but the fact is, they're testing for it. And you know they're testing for it. Whatever you do in between camps, if you know they're testing for this stuff then you've got to figure something out. In the past, he's said, 'Oh, I can smoke and I can pass these tests no problem.' That attitude kind of came back and bit him in the ass."

For Diaz, the infraction marked the second time he's been popped for the green stuff in Nevada (http://www.mmamania.com/2011/9/25/2446749/ufc-135-the-boys-from-209-and-their-beatings-of-takanori-gomi), having flunked his exam after strangling Takanori Gomi (http://www.mmamania.com/2012/2/mma/fighter/128647/takanori-gomi) at PRIDE 33 nearly five years ago.And let's not overlook the drug test he bailed on prior to his planned fight against Jay Hieron in California (http://www.mmamania.com/2009/08/10/nick-diaz-misses-pre-fight-drug-test-jeopardizes-aug-15-strikeforce-title-fight/).While Diaz has the right to appeal, he's expected to face a steep monetary fine, as well as a lengthy suspension that could last as long as one year.As for Condit?He's expected to fight Georges St. Pierre later this year (http://www.mmamania.com/2012/2/6/2775499/georges-st-pierre-vs-carlos-condit-odds-betting-lines) to unify the titles, but if the Canadian is in no "Rush" to return from rehabbing his surgically repaired knee (http://www.mmamania.com/2012/1/17/2712130/ufc-georges-st-pierre-gsp-rush-knee-surgery-rehab-return), there's always that rematch against Jake Ellenberger (http://www.mmamania.com/2012/2/11/2792489/jake-ellenberger-focused-on-diego-sanchez-but-still-wants-carlos).Stay tuned.

Duidelijk verhaal van Condit. Ook goed dat hij ook onderstreept dat marijuana Diaz niet geholpen heeft in zijn gevecht.

Wel zonde dat zo'n knakker als Diaz gewoon niet inziet dat als hij 2-3 jaar een paar goede beslissingen op een rij zet hij gewoon z'n pensioen veilig kan stellen. Nu moet hij straks weer hopen op clementie (en die gaat hij ook krijgen want de man zorgt voor PPV's) van UFC en een nieuwe title run van een paar gevechten voordat hij voor de belt kan gaan.

Zie ook niet echt een acteur in 'm en als ambassadeur van een product is hij gewoon te link met z'n onvoorspelbare gedrag.

Cesar Gracie: Nick Diaz Was Surprised He Tested Positive

Days after the announcement that Nick Diaz tested positive for marijuana and will be disciplined by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, Diaz's manager and trainer Cesar Gracie said Diaz was surprised by the result of his drug test. Not because Diaz doesn't use marijuana -- he admits he does -- but because Diaz thought he had taken all the necessary steps to make sure the marijuana metabolites were out of his system before the drug test.

"I was very disappointed," Gracie said on The MMA Hour. "Everyone knows he smokes marijuana medicinally in California. He has a legal right to do it in this state."

Gracie said he was the one who was informed of the positive test and passed along the word to Diaz, and that Diaz had thought he had stopped using marijuana for long enough before the UFC 143 fight with Carlos Condit, and had enough water pass through his system, that a test would come up negative.

"He was surprised he tested positive," Gracie said. "He does the same ritual every fight for the last five years. He stops it in time and he cleanses his system, works out like crazy, drinks a lot of water and purges his system of it."

Gracie said he thought Diaz's weight cut may have contributed to the marijuana metabolites staying in his system longer than usual. Gracie said the Diaz camp has hired an attorney, Ross Goodman of Las Vegas, who will help to appeal to the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

This is the second time that Diaz has failed a drug test in Nevada, having previously tested positive following his Pride victory over Takanori Gomi. Because this is a second offense, Diaz could face a yearlong suspension. It's also possible that Diaz -- who hinted immediately following the loss to Condit that he might retire from MMA -- could quit fighting entirely. Gracie said that's going through Diaz's mind now, but that he believes Diaz will ultimately decide he wants to continue competing.

"It's quite possible, actually," Gracie said of Diaz possibly walking away. "I really believe he loves fighting. I think he's fought too much and I think with all the politics that come with this sport and everything, the negativity, it's a crazy thing and I don't think he likes that part of it and the media and everything. He wanted to test himself as a martial artist and that was the most important thing, even more important than financial gain."

Ultimately, Gracie thinks Diaz will step back into the cage at some point, once he has put whatever discipline Nevada hands down behind him.

"I think after a certain amount of time he'll get the love back," Gracie said. "So I do want him to go through this process and try to clear everything and get him back on track fighting."

NSAC Explains Nick Diaz Could Have (But Didn't) Request Exemption For Marijuana Use

One of the biggest stories coming out of Nick Diaz (http://www.sbnation.com/mma/fighter/122575/nick-diaz) testing positive for marijuana after his UFC 143 bout with Carlos Condit (http://www.sbnation.com/mma/fighter/122573/carlos-condit) has been Diaz's medical prescription for the drug. While some have said that Diaz should not be punished at all for something he has a prescription for, others have pointed out that there are plenty of medical conditions which require drugs or other intervention which prevent others from fighting.But, as pointed out in a recent Cage Potato interview with Keith Kizer (http://www.cagepotato.com/nsac-head-says-diaz-could-have-applied-for-therapeutic-use-exemption-for-marijuana/), executive director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, there were ways for Diaz and his camp to have applied for an exemption for his use, they just didn't:
According to Kizer, though, Diaz had another option: coming to the NSAC weeks before fighting and applying for a therapeutic exemption (TUE) for his marijuana use.
Given that Diaz' coach and manager, Cesar Gracie, has made a point of saying that Diaz has a legal right to use marijuana in California since a doctor prescribed it to him, one would have expected Diaz to have applied for the exemption with the commission.
But that did not happen Kizer explains, as no one from Diaz' camp has ever attempted to explain any mitigating circumstances to him about the fighter's marijuana use or tried to contextualize it to attempt for Nick to granted a therapeutic exemption. "I have no idea what [Diaz's] marijuana situation is," Kizer told CagePotato on Thursday. "No one from his camp has ever come to me or the commission and tried to explain it."

Requesting the exemption doesn't mean they would have gotten one, but it is certainly a better first step than simply assuming that you'll be able to beat the testing every time out.

Nevada Suspends Nick Diaz's License, Prepares for Medical Marijuana Exemption Request

A temporary suspension of Nick Diaz's fighter license was issued during a Wednesday meeting of the Nevada state athletic commission, stemming from the positive drug sample he produced during the weekend of UFC 143.
The suspension was requested by Nevada deputy attorney general Christopher Eccles, and unanimously approved by the commission until a follow-up disciplinary meeting can be scheduled. At that hearing, Diaz will have the opportunity to present a defense. He was not present at Wednesday's meeting.

When he does sit before the commission, he will likely have to answer not only for his recent drug screening failure which saw him test positive for marijuana metabolites, but also for a previous failed screening back in February 2007, also for marijuana. At that time, he was suspended for six months and fined 20 percent of his purse.

During Wednesday's meeting, commission chairman Skip Avansino requested notes and minutes from the 2007 Nevada matter, as well as any related information from any states in preparation of Diaz's upcoming disciplinary hearing.

The stage was also set for a possible defense that could include a retroactive request for a medical marijuana exemption, as Eccles noted a personal belief that "the question will come up" given Diaz's personal license for medical use in California.
NSAC executive director Keith Kizer recently told MMA Fighting that no fighter had ever applied for a medial marijuana therapeutic use exemption, but that the commission would take the same steps as normal when considering the request.

In addition to as much as a one-year suspension, Diaz faces the possibility of a financial fine, as the commission asked to receive "full data" on his purse as well as any bonuses. Diaz earned a salary of $200,000 for the bout, but likely received undisclosed bonuses that can also be affected.

Diaz has hired Las Vegas attorney Ross Goodman to defend him during the upcoming hearing, which has yet to be scheduled.

Nick Diaz's Lawyer Issues Response to NSAC, States Law Proves Diaz Shouldn't Be Punished

Nick Diaz is not going down without a fight.
Weeks after the Nevada State Athletic Commission announced that Diaz had tested positive for marijuana metabolites following his UFC 143 loss to Carlos Condit in February and was potentially subject to an undetermined punishment, Diaz's lawyer, Ross Goodman of the Las Vegas-based Goodman Law Group, has issued a strong response to the NSAC, which raises some serious questions regarding whether Diaz deserves to be punished at all.

In the response, which Goodman has shared with MMAFighting.com and can be found below, he explains that Diaz's medical marijuana use, which he states should be, according to the World Anti-Doping Agency, whose laws have been adopted by the NSAC, considered "out-of-competition" since it ended eight days before the fight, plus the fact that only marijuana metabolites were found in his system, are reasons why Diaz didn't break any of the NSAC's rules.

Goodman also states that the "presence of a marijuana metabolite is not a prohibited substance under NAC 487.850 and should not, therefore, serve as a basis for any disciplinary action."

According to Goodman, Diaz's hearing in Nevada could happen as soon as April, but no exact date has been finalized just yet. Diaz's license was temporarily suspended by the NSAC in February. He hopes that this response will allow Diaz, who was suspended for six months and fined by the NSAC for testing positive for marijuana following his PRIDE 33 fight against Takanori Gomi February 2007, to walk away from the situation without any kind of punishment.

State of Nevada Rebuts Nick Diaz Lawsuit

Last Tuesday, UFC welterweight Nick Diaz filed a lawsuit against the Nevada state athletic commission, claiming that the state regulation agency violated his right to due process by declining to grant him a hearing on the status of his fighter's license within 45 days of his suspension.

According to the state of Nevada's office of the attorney general, the legal move is misguided. That is because Diaz's legal team, headed by Ross C. Goodman, cited a "summary suspension" of Diaz's license in his court filing. According to Nevada's state codes, a summary suspension can be ordered if an agency finds that "public health, safety or welfare imperatively require emergency action."

But in a written response from Nevada attorney general Catherine Cortez Masto to Goodman and forwarded to MMA Fighting, the state of Nevada asserts that Diaz's legal team misunderstood the suspension. "No Notice of Summary Suspension was ever served on your client," Masto wrote. "In this matter, Mr. Diaz was properly served with a 'Notice of Hearing on Temporary Suspension' and he failed to appear at the hearing. The Commission temporarily suspended Mr. Diaz’s license at the hearing. Neither Mr. Diaz nor you objected in any manner to the temporary suspension."
The letter effectively indicates that because Diaz was not given a "summary suspension," his case does not fall under Nevada code NRS 233B.127, which requires a hearing within 45 days. A separate code, NRS 467.117, indicates that the commission can " continue the suspension until it makes a final determination of any disciplinary action to be taken against the licensee or holder of the permit."

The letter also indicates that the NSAC delay in scheduling Diaz's hearing was partially his fault, caused while waiting for him to produce his medical marijuana card.
"I've waited for more than a month for the card," Masto wrote.

Diaz tested positive for marijuana metabolites on February 4, shortly after losing a UFC 143 match against Carlos Condit. On a pre-fight medical questionnaire, he denied taking any "prescribed medications" in the last two weeks.

On April 4, Nevada sent Goodman a letter asking him to produce Diaz's medical marijuana card. Goodman later produced a letter from Diaz's doctor, Robert E. Sullivan, who said he had first issued a physician's statement in June 2009 which noted that Diaz had a 'serious medical condition" which would, in his professional opinion, "benefit from the use of medical cannabis." He issued a follow-up statement on Feb. 28, 2012, re-affirming the same.

The Nevada attorney general's office said that they are moving forward with their complaint against Diaz, and that they would still attempt to hold a disciplinary hearing on the matter.

Meanwhile, Nevada's Clark County District Court has set a May 14 hearing at 10:30 am on Goodman's request for an injunction against the suspension on Diaz's license.

Nick Diaz's Injunction Denied, Forcing Him to Wait Until NSAC Hearing for Career Clarity

Nick Diaz will be forced to wait at least one more week before learning about the status of his stalled mixed martial arts career.In a Monday hearing in Clark County (Nevada) district court, judge Rob Bare denied an injunction request that would have effectively overturned his temporary suspension by the the Nevada state athletic commission, stemming from a February drug test that was positive for marijuana metabolites.

The official minutes of the hearing will not be available until Wednesday, but Judge Bare's executive assistant Tara Duenas confirmed the ruling to MMA Fighting.

NSAC executive director Keith Kizer told MMA Fighting that Diaz's hearing with his sanctioning body would be placed on the May 21 docket.

Diaz's suit, filed on April 24 through attorney Ross Goodman, claimed that NSAC had violated his due process right to a timely hearing, a requirement that the commission will determine the outcome of any summary suspension within 45 days.

NSAC rebutted the claim, suggesting that Diaz and his manager Cesar Gracie had precipitated the delay by offering to produce a medical marijuana card, and then failed to present that documentation. (Diaz did produce a physician's statement from his doctor, Robert E. Sullivan, which said he would "benefit from the use of medical cannabis.")

In previous legal responses, Goodman has argued that NSAC has no legal authority to suspend Diaz for marijuana metabolites, saying that result suggests out-of-competition use. Under the rules of the strict World Anti-Doping Agency -- followed by most sanctioning bodies including NSAC -- out-of-competition marijuana use is not prohibited.

"We were ready, willing and able to proceed, and we held it off because his attorney asked to do so to produce the card," Kizer said. "It now appears that Mr. Diaz and Mr. Gracie were less than honest with Mr. Goodman about having the card."

Diaz was not present for the Las Vegas hearing. Through his court filing, Diaz, who has said he smokes marijuana due to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, said he stopped smoking marijuana eight days before the fight, a UFC 143 decision loss to Carlos Condit.

On May 21, he'll face the prospect of a one-year suspension.

As for NSAC, Kizer said they will take the judge's advice of putting hearing delays in formal writing to avoid any future confusion.

Nick Diaz Suspended for One Year, Must Forfeit 30 Percent of UFC 143 Purse
Embattled UFC welterweight Nick Diaz has been suspended for one year by the Nevada state athletic commission on Monday for his post-UFC 143 drug test that came back positive for marijuana metabolites.

In addition, Diaz will have to forfeit 30 purse of his $200,000 fight purse, a total of $60,000.

In a three-hour hearing at the Grant Sawyer State Office Building in Las Vegas, Diaz's attorney Ross Goodman argued that the presence of marijuana metabolites in Diaz's sample did not prove he had used the drug in-competition, and that because World Anti-Doping Agency code does not prohibit out-of-competition marijuana usage, no penalty should be levied against him.


Goodman produced an expert witness, Dr. John Hiatt, who is now semi-retired but previously worked for reputable drug lab Quest Diagnostics, who told the commission that Diaz's test level results -- 25 nanograms per milileter -- could certainly be consistent with someone who stopped using marijuana as much as eight days prior to the test, or even more.

"Depending on the amount of body fat a person has, the rate of turnover of that fat, whether they’re gaining weight or losing weight, they may be positive for marijuana in the urine for the metabolite for days, weeks, or even more than a month after last use," he said.

Diaz -- who was suspended by the same commission for the same transgression back in 2007 -- explained his history with marijuana, saying he first began taking it recreationally with friends before learning it could possibly be used to address his ongoing issues with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD). Diaz said he was first diagnosed with that around the time he was in second grade, and that for years, he was ordered to take power prescription drugs including Ritalin, Adderall and Prozac.

As he got older, he said, he learned that some of those drugs were similar to methamphetamine and looked for alternatives. It was then when he began to learn about the therapeutic uses of marijuana.

Later though, NSAC chairman Skip Avansino and deputy attorney general Christopher Eccles seized upon that admission to make a point about potential performance-enhancing aspects of marijuana.

At one point, Avansino asked Diaz if he used marijuana while training? Diaz responded yes, and later added that he used it for "sparring, competitive training, hard training, triathlon racing. Anything that's not going to test me for it. Sure, why not?"

Eccles then asked if it increased his focus, and Diaz said yes.

But in the end, NSAC seemed to be unable to get past two things. First was the presence of marijuana metabolites in his sample. Even Dr. Hiatt admitted that the test was the industry standard for drug usage.

The second was that Diaz had not included any mention of his marijuana usage on a pre-drug test questionnaire, nor any mention of a "serious medical issue" like ADHD that precipitated his use.

Goodman, who mounted a vigorous defense of Diaz, argued that Diaz did not disclose the medical marijuana usage because the form supplied to him had only questions about "prescription" and "over-the-counter" medication, and neither of those truly applied to Diaz's situation, since it was not technically a prescription but a doctor's note that made him eligible to buy medical marijuana from a dispensary.

Diaz said he not consider his case a "serious medical issue," saying he believed the question was reserved for things that would "prevent me from fighting" like a broken bone or other injury.

NSAC executive director Keith Kizer at one point testified of his own belief that Diaz had tried to dilute the sample, alleging he had done so in a October 2011 test, which came back marked "abnormal/negative" from the lab. Kizer said that in the post-UFC 143 test, Diaz did not submit a urine sample until the early morning hours -- presumably after ingesting large amounts of water -- until it was threatened that he would not be paid.

"There was definitely at attempt, in my mind, both in October and February, for him to dilute the sample," he said.

In his closing argument, Eccles asked the commission to hold Diaz accountable for his "doping violation," and they did.

Lundvall noted there is a strict liability standard that makes the athlete responsible for what's in his body, but also added that she wished Diaz would have approached the commission about a therapeutic use exemption for his usage based upon his medical history.

"I think a reasonable person would deduce you have a serious medical condition," she said. Still, she was the one who proposed a one-year suspension.

The commission's vote was unanimous, which means Diaz won't be eligible to fight until at least February 3, 2013.
