Changed from a victory to a no contest. What a joke. Doctors say that the level of THC in his body "numbed the pain." Give me a break. This rematch MUST happen now.

I think it's hilarious... Diaz's own fault IMO... funny how he says he doesnt normally abuse drugs lol...

Does this mean that our records and points/bets will change to accomidate?

How can he say he doesn't do it normally if his test was a "175." He either tokes up a lot of he was stoned when he fought. Which in my opinion wouldn't really matter anyway cuz weed doesn't numb your pain or enhance your performance. But hilarious nonetheless.

This is exactly the kind of crap I was afraid of. The laws in every state have lessened in the last couple years 11 states have at least a medical bill. More than 30 states have openly debated (and some have had elections regarding) full legalization. It is in a very grey area in the US right now. If the fight was in Japan he never would've been tested for it, and it is totally illegal there. I realize it is illegal, but only kind of- it's decrim in Nevada. The only reason I can see for it is it was a substance he was told was banned and he tested positive for it, so.....

He'll probly win the rematch, especially now that it will be under unified rules...

If anything it would hurt his performance because he would be thinking of a quesadilla with funions and an orange soda.

to take that win away from him is a bit much IMO, but you reap what you sow and if his levels were as high as they made them out to be he was obviously doing plenty of smoking. either way though smoking pot wont help you secure a sub like that, he earned that victory and its a shame its come to this

Definitley a shame... I used to smoke grass all the time, and I've never looked at it pain killer... I don't know where people get that idea, and if it is it's no stronger than ibuprofen/tylenol, I guess I don't know if those are banned as well??

I can't read the article at work (damn IT people), was it the NSAC that over turned it or Pride officials or what?

It's too bad... I think that is easily a candidate for fight of the year, and this just tarnishes the whole thing. I would like to know how they derive what point the THC in the blood stream acts as such a tide-turning pain killer...

And further more I'd hae to assume that means the governing body is accusing him of being under the influence during the fight? WTF, That's rediculous... Have one of those get stoned and go spar someone with comparable hand speed / power to Gomi, lol...

This is comparable to people demonizing MMA while they have no idea what it intails and is all about.

I was waiting for this to happen. It sucks. I've been a Diaz fan since I saw him tap out Jeremy Jackson with a beautiful armbar. I know a lot of people don't like his attitude and stuff, but I think he's funny as hell.

The result shouldn't have been changed. Weed isn't steriods or anything. They should have just fined him, let him serve his suspension, and let that be that.

Hope Diaz wins Gomi's belt in the rematch. But I doubt Gomi is going to get that gassed that early next time.

That is bullshit. Everyone knows the truth anyway it doesnt matter.

Well, I personally think it is a stupid decision.

However, (without reading the article) I will say that I understand the decision to the extent that you have to enforce any rules. As soon as you start giving exceptions, then all hell breaks loose.

Another thing, and I have no evidence for it (I never looked for any) but some substances are banned, not because they are performance enhancers themselves, but can mask the presence of bona fide performance enhancers (or byproducts) in urine.

One example of this is the hair growing drug (propecia) can mask various tests for not only performance enhancing drugs, but also cancer.

So despite the fact that the NC ruling issued seems stupid, there might be more to the story.

I LOVE IT

Perhaps if Diaz wasnt such a drug abusing scum bag this wouldnt have happened, but he is a scum bag, and its biting him on the ass!

This is a fair and just punishment, and Im so glad it happened to Diaz too

lmao i love how they say that the weed helped diaz with the pain

even if diaz was baked during that fight, 3 good punches and his high is all gone, and gomi got him with a lot more then 3 good punchs.

i gaurantee there would be no gain of going into a fight stoned, hell ive never got stoned and felt like getting in a fight

if anything i think he just smoked it to calm his nerves before the day of the fight or maybe even the night of his win to celebrate

Someone is still salty that Gomi got owned. Don't be surprised if Gomi gets his ass handed to him several more times in the future, including a second time to Diaz.

Gomi = Paper Champ.

Had to change my avatar to support Diaz.

WAR DIAZ!

I actually just ordered a nick diaz shirt from his website

he should really come up with new designs.


Gomi's style has passed him by...there is no way he can beat any American top contender

Wow, this is an absurd outcome. I don't care if he was stoned or not, there is no way to conclusively say he was high during the fight. All we know is he had THC in his blood at least after the fight or before the fight, which in either case does not prove he was "high" during the match. This is a bullshit punishment. They should have just suspended him or docked him of some of his purse.

People have abused steroids and have kept their records intact, but Diaz gets a win taken away for a non performance related drug? That's bullshit, no matter how you feel about the guy. If they're doing this I want Randy's loss to Barnett gone.

This is a case for an asterkis... nothing more or less.

Who cares if the record says NC, Diaz knows who won that night. So do the rest of us.

if you guys can remember right diaz got rocked hard by gomi early into the fight and fractured his face, so if he was as high as the NSAC said he was i would think that was the only reason he was able to continue. pot does numb little pain but maybe a little was all he needed to take that blow. and really if he didnt want to chance a NC then i guess he should have stayed off that gansta shiit yo!!

If I'd be able to have a sig here I'd have the result of the fight to always remember everyone of how it went down.
Diaz smashed Gomi and even though Diaz is a stupid **** who smokes pot a few days before an event, it shouldn't have been overturned.

Btw. Gomi is an even bigger dick, acting like a ******* diva after the fight not giving any credit to Diaz, just coming up with new excuses. After that post-fight interview I'll root for anyone they put in front of him...

Ok anyone except Kimbo... I still hope that guy just goes away.

The points will not change according to the FAQ for this site:


" How are fights that end in draws or no contest handled? "

Draw and no contest fights are just simply not calculated into the points, ranking, or earnings. The result and scoring from a fight that is overturned at a later date (steroids, etc) will remain on the website.

Although Diaz got caught smoking by the drug test im just hoping that there will be a rematch I just dont understand why the drug test wouldnt just focuse on checking for steroids rather then different drugs like coke, meth, and weed
