Why not give him Sheilds?

Shields is supposed to fight for the interim MW belt... I just read on mmaweekly that Diaz didnt show up today and Taylor is in for a non title fight. Sad news.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm gaining a lot of respect for Taylor.


he's doing the right things right now. he's focused on fighting he's not partying and he's keeping his mouth shut.

i've developed some respect for the guy now that he's manning up and showing some responsibility but i still think he's the biggest idiot to come along over all the past seasons of TUF.

as long as coco the monkey doesnt return i think he could go far in the sport.

I really like Jesse Taylor. Hes got an huge amount of potential, and I would love to see him become a champ at some stage in his career, just so he can lol at Dana for making an example out of him.

If Hieron shows up in a Limo with a WWF style entrance, he has no chance against JT Money.

i feel for JT, hes young and everyone screws up at that age, he just did it in a big way at the worst possible time. i think he could take hieron down and gnp/lnp his way to a win here, although we didnt get to see a ton of his game last time out against the donger.

WEAK. This sucks. I feel bad for Strick Force, Diaz is a high-level world-class fighter, but these other two--no offense--but can't hold a candle to Nick, and it just makes the UFC look that much better.
This is one of the most uninteresting title fights, no, make that thee most uninteresting title fight I've ever heard of in MMA.

Question...

Since Diaz failed to show up for a drug test, will the CSAC consider that to be an automatic positive test, meaning he could still have his license suspended?




i dont think it should count as a positive test.

although it should be if a trend started to happen.

guys knowing they couldnt pass OR guys not sure if they would pass the drug test.could just simply skip it and not worry about license suspension.

its kind of a loophole.

but like i said if a trend were to occur than yes.i think it should be counted as a positive result



By Trend do you mean like failing a past drug test and avoiding phones calls from CSAC and missing 2 drug test deadlines? Even the promotion has been avoiding the CSAC and Diaz as well as his manager have been doing the same.

I feel the CSAC is being way to easy about all this. They keep breaking their own rules to help StrikeForce and Diaz out when truth is no fighter should get special treatment. If you worked for a company and that company did random drug testing and you didn't show up for the test you would get a warning and would have to take the test the next business day. If you missed that test a 2nd time you would be fired. It is at the point now that I think its clear Diaz is avoiding being tested because he thinks or knows he will fail the test which is just sad. If I was hea d of a commission avoidance would be seen just like a positive test but sadly it isn't. Jeff Monson refused a test and all that happened was he was refused a license to fight.

How anyone can continue to root for this guy is beyond me.
