One effect of relaxing marijuana testing thresholds for Nevada fight licensees could be more disclosure.

Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer hopes applicants would be honest about whether they used marijuana in the weeks preceding a fight, particularly if they were aware of the punishments levied against retired MMA fighter Nick Diaz and boxer Julio Ceasar Chavez, Jr.

Diaz forked over $79,500, while Chavez Jr. paid $100,000 to the commission after failing post-fight drug tests in the state.

Nothing new here.

If they decided to make driving blue cars illegal and you got caught driving one, you would still be accountable for your "crime" even if afterwards that law is removed.

Also, I'm not sure if we know if Diaz would have failed the drug test even with the new standards.

Riddle never paid:


Riddle remains ambivalent. On one hand, it cost him his spot in the UFC, though he insists that "no commission ever took a dime" from him over post-fight drug tests.
