Nick Diaz Tests Positive for Marijuana, Dana White “beyond disappointed”

UFC welterweight contender, Nick Diaz has tested positive for marijuana following his UFC 143 title bout with Carlos Condit this past weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada. The results were confirmed by the Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director, Keith Kizer, who forwarded the results to a number of mixed martial arts sites.

Diaz will now have to appear before the commission to address the failed screening. Diaz also tested positive for marijuana following his 2007 win over Takanori Gomi at PRIDE 33. Diaz was suspended for six months, although this time he will be looking at a year as it’s his second offence with the same drug.

Dana White, speaking via a press release tonight, said:

“I am that he tested positive for marijuana. It is now in the hands of the Nevada State Athletic Commission.”
