    Default Nick Diaz Tests Positive for Marijuana

    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:
    1. There is no indication as to who is the fighter in question.
    2. 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 rematch.


    Here's another clue for you all, SI reporter Josh Gross tweeted this earlier:

    Briljant als Diaz straks weer een jaar geschorst wordt en Diaz-Condit II niet door zou gaan omdat hij weer eens een gevecht verknald. De soap Diaz might continue :')

    Ik denk dat de UFC nu wel blij is dat Diaz toch de beslissing niet heeft gekregen..

    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.

    Snap niet dat t wat uitmaakt dat Diaz af en toe n jointje rookt.
    Denk eerder dat je slechter dan beter gaat presteren met thc in je lijf.
    Ik wordt in ieder geval alleen maar suf van wiet, hahaha :P

    Je gaat er ook niet beter van presteren. In Amerika is het anders dan bij ons nog steeds wel een verboden verdovende middel. De meerderheid daar is nog steeds anti softdrugs. Vandaar dat zij er op testen.

    So Nick, would you agree your marijuana smoking has got in the way of your fight career?

    what an ass ook eigenlijk....al een keer eerder gepakt en nu weer....
    of het nu wel of geen positieve invloed heeft op je prestaties je weet dat je er op getest kunt worden dus als je een professional bent neem je geen risico....en maar klagen over z'n paycheck, nou doe je jezelf toch aan gast...
    toen pissen plassen werd is het gezeik begonnen!

    Eigenlijk is het heel krom. Diaz mag wiet roken omdat hij het medisch nodig heeft en in Californië woont. Wiet is bovendien niet prestatie bevorderend. Hendo en andere vechters gebruiken TRT wat wel prestatie bevorderend is en die worden niet gestraft.

    Slaat nergens op.

    Default Nick Diaz drug test failure: It's time to grow up

    I don't get it.
    You're Nick Diaz. You're a 28-year-old man who has won 10 fights in a row. You've conquered 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.
    The champion, Georges St. Pierre, gets injured, leaving you with a fight against fellow top contender Carlos Condit at UFC 143. 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.
