Diaz Fails Post-Fight Drug Test; Tests Positive for Mary Jane

Well this is crazy…

Apparently Nick Diaz has failed the post-fight drug test he took directly after his submission win over PRIDE Lightweight Champion Takanori Gomi at PRIDE 33: The Second Coming. The Nevada State Athletic Commission stated that he has tested positive for marijuana.

Next comes the standard procedure that we are starting to become all too familar with…

Diaz will have to schedule a hearing with the NSAC if he decides to go against the ruling. He will most likely be suspended for six months, at least that’s what has happened for other athletes who have tested positive for the drug recently. The big question is whether or not this suspension will be issued along with his six month medical suspension or if it will be issued after that.

In case anyone was wondering, all of the other fighters passed their drug tests with flying colors…
