For the past few days, I have been talking about the Carlos Condit-Nick Diaz rematch and the implications that would carry for the sport and for the fighters’ futures.

Thanks to Nick Diaz’s addiction love for marijuana, none of that matters now.

Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer confirmed in a statement to MMAweekly:

All (UFC 143 drug test) results received thus far have been negative, except Mr. Diaz tested positive for marijuana metabolites.  A complaint for disciplinary action against Mr. Diaz has been filed.”

This is Diaz’s second time being busted for marijuana following a fight, the first time being after his 2007 bout with Takanori Gomi.  In 2009, Diaz was pulled from a Strikeforce fight card for failing to submit drug tests before the fight.  Needless to say, Diaz has a problem with the hippie lettuce, and it will be hard for him to maintain the stable and professional career he is capable of until he fixes it.

What do you think of this news?  Should marijuana be a drug they test for in the UFC and where do you think this puts Diaz’s career?

I’ll be sure to update as more news develops concerning the case.  It will be interesting to see what happens with Condit and GSP from here.

    I think at this point in mma, he will be forgiven. He’ll just serve his 1 year suspension and resume Stocton Slap, trash talking, disrespectful self.

      I agree. They forgave him before and they’ll do it again. He’ll never change if they never take stronger disciplinary action with him.
