NSAC announces Diaz tested positive for "marijuana metabolites, add that "a complaint for disciplinary action against Diaz has been filed."

EDIT: The Nevada Athletic Commission has confirmed that Nick Diaz tested positive for marijuana at UFC 143 and will face disciplinary action, almost certainly canceling his planned rematch with Carlos Condit and throwing his future into question.

"Mr. Diaz tested positive for marijuana metabolites. A complaint for disciplinary action against Mr. Diaz has been filed," Nevada Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer wrote in a statement distributed to the media.

i would have been extremely disappointed had Diaz won the right to fight GSP & blown it.

also, if he cant stay clean when i title is on the line, then he needs to stick to triathlons.

love watching him fight, but this was for a shot at gsp & he proved once again that he just doesnt care.

When you say you want to retire after each fight for 4 in a row and then announce it, I doubt he even tried to clean his system, and if he actually shows up before the NSAC to explain or appeal, it'll only be because Cesar wants him to. This is probably what he wanted

The only things that marijuana has enhanced for me are masturbation and laziness. Still find it baffling that they call it a "performance enhancer". Not to say he shouldn't be suspended, but give me a break

Agreed Poor_Franklin. Well said, sir.

Good riddance to bad rubbish, I say.

Whether its performance enhancing or not he knows what a positive test will do so why risk a title shot at gsp he's either plain stupid or for all his talk he doesn't actually want to fight gsp

Very true, it is illegal in sports and federally. Nick Diaz has his card, and so do I. I can legally in my state walk into a dispensary a block away and walk back with thc lollipops, fruit punch, cookies, butter, a couple grams, etc. so it may be hard for some to understand how accepted it is on the west coast. It is legal in Cali and Wa I can walk down the beach with a joint in front of a cop 5 feet away and not get a second glance. But federally, and as a professional athlete, it is iillegal, so he deserves whatever the NSAC decides, but i imagine the longer the suspension, the happier Diaz will be.

Bingo bango bongo.

You follow the rules set forth by your employer, or suffer the consequences. This marks two times now that he's not complied.

The article says nothing about performance enhancing. Kizer didn't call it an enhancer in his short statement quoted in the article. Whether you guys feel it effects the fight or not, it's not up to us to decide. We don't make the rules. We follow the fighters who are licensed by the states' athletic commissions. Those commissions set forth the rules, not us.

Allow me to repeat myself: I'm not saying he shouldn't be suspended. I'm just commenting on the NSACs classification of a positive marijuana test as performance enhancing.

It's a shame that everyone has been scrambling over the past few days to give him another shot.

Negotiating Condit into a rematch.
Dana setting up meetings to finalize it.
GSP even saying he would relinquish his title to fight Diaz.

And now, this...

With all the complaints about unfair treatment, he really doesn't do himself any favours here.

Too bad... would have been a good rematch.

I can confirm this. Jay gets very lazy and masturbates a lot when he smokes.

Not that I'd know.

You say that like it's not still standard protocol when I'm sober. The frequency is what's affected. It is performance enhancing though, because now I'm ambidextrous.

So who's as stoked as I am to find out if he beat his THC level from the Gomi fight?

It's like an arcade game and we still don't know if he got top score!

Breaking news: Condit also tests positive for THC due to contact high.

I'll post this here as well since my thread will most get deleted,


Sucks Diaz couldn't stay clean for a few weeks, to get through the fight. I know he suffers from social anxiety, but he should have a counselor or something to help him when he isn't smoking to get through all the media shit.

I also but some blame on Gracie, he should have been looking out for his fighter, making sure he is doing everything he is supposed to. I know Diaz is a big boy and should take care of himself, but as a manager, managing someone who has had problems in the past, and fighting the biggest fight of his life, I would make sure my guy was doing everything legit.

He wants peoples respect but he does stuff Luke this. To call him immature would be too nice. He has been nothing but a nail in the tire of zuffa. I say release him. Good fighter but a screwball

Dude sells tickets. I'd say he's got a bit more value than a nail in a tire, but I definitely see your point.

the Diaz/Gomi fight in PRIDE was in Vegas

EDIT: And if Gomi had won, this would be Diaz's first ever positive test for THC as they extremely rarely test the losers of fights who weren't main-evening.

of course he does, I'm not saying he doesn't but lots of other guys do too but they don't do 2 things he does, 1) piss dirty 2) cause problems for Dana and co. He's just an immature guy that has a lot of growing up to do.

it's funny that this guy said gsp was scared of him yet he skipped a press meeting and now on the eve of a guaranteed title shot he got high knowing he would get caught. I honestly think diaz is the one who is scared.
I don't really understand why marijuana is banned from sports or referred to as a performance enhancer but I will agree that if you know it is illegal there is no excuse and don't buy into this social anxiety garbage the guy has no problem getting on a microphone or flipping off a camera, that is not social anxiety

Diaz outsells anyone at PPV sales under MW aside from GSP, that includes Edgar, Aldo, and any other popular fighters under 185. To not think he'd be back even if his suspension is for two years would be thinking the UFC is a not-for-profit athletic organization rather than a moneymaking business. Dude sells PPV's. And gets to smoke a whole lot of pot in his time off.
