It's not like being high gives anyone an advantage during a fight anyways.

What does that have to do with weed?

I remember Kizer talking about Nick Diaz after he beat Gomi, saying something along the lines of marijuana being the reason that Diaz was able to absorb that much punishment from Gomi without being unconscious or giving up. That was the most ridiculous claim I'd ever heard about weed at that time. It's obvious Kizer has never smoked in his life.

With that said, I'm really glad he seems to have changed his tune. Maybe Rogan got him baked or something.

A lot of people credit marijuana for getting rid of anxiety, tension, agitation, etc. So I'm just guessing a fighter (making his UFC debut) who smokes marijuana wouldn't have a problem with the UFC jitters.

3x current levels is probably still not enough. I would guess that most of the silly marijuana suspensions would have still have happened even if they used the new standards. Really unless the dude has enough in his system that he's high going into the ring, it shouldn't be an issue.

I agree, the amount the person uses on a regular basis is going to effect their individual levels. At least they are willing to compromise, they are trying to say that so long as you're not stoned at the time of the fight then you're good. I think we can all agree on that, unless you're soo pre marijuana that you're completely blinded to it's affects.
