Kazuhiro Nakamura, who made his UFC debut at UFC 76, failed a post-fight drug test when he tested positive for marijuana. Nakamura lost to Ryoto (Lyoto) Machida by unanimous decision.

Doesn't sound like too harsh a penalty, he probably wouldn't have fought again for at least 3 months anyway. There's still the steroid test results though, those are probably a couple weeks away.

Naku on the Smoku.


With his strange behaviour it wouldn't suprise me if he lit one up before the fight.

What goes through a fighters head to use drugs when they know they are going to be tested? Do they think they can use that stuff ( I forget the name of the chemical) to clean their system first, or are they just that stupid?

What I read not too long ago was that if a fighter uses steroids or performance-enhancing drugs at least 2 weeks before the fight, it's possible (either naturally or via other methods) to get it completely out of your system and thus you'd liekly pass a post-fight drug test.

Based upon his antics, I'd say he toked up right before the weigh-ins.

I was never sure what a japanese stoner looked like before.. but i do now ^^

the way he was moving around while he still had gas reminded more of a drunk than a stoner tho

i really don't see the big deal about testing positive for recreational drugs

and for those who think he might of fought the bout high, to do that he would of had to smoke right before the bout started which would be next to impossible to do without anyone finding out

when weed burns it stinks a place up and smells like a skunk just got ran over

The big deal is, why would you risk your career by taking drugs.

He was probably high when he decided it would be a good idea to come out with that umbrella.

Hahahahaha....you all are killing me!! The umbrella comment...priceless!! Has anyone thought that his punishment is kind of light comparred to how they have treated Diaz since he popped. I think they should start making standardized punishments for the rules. No matter who you are if you pop for weed your punishment is X, if it's steriods Y, and if it's holding on too long to a submission it's Z. Makes it nice and simple really.

yeah i get the part about it being illegal to use drugs

but why do they even test for it? it wouldnt help a fighter in any aspect of the game to get high

with the big problem the ufc is having with steroids, it just seems like they have bigger fish to fry
