Nick Diaz tests positive for marijuana use

UFC fighter Nick Diaz has tested positive for having marijuana in his system in the wake of a match-up against Carlos Condit at UFC 143. News of the result was revealed via a NSAC email.

Diaz lost by unanimous decision to Condit in the main event of the card, as “The Natural Born Killer” claimed the interim UFC welterweight title.

Rumors of a possible Diaz-Condit rematch were being talked about on Wednesday. Cesar Gracie, the manager and head trainer for Diaz reported that there would be no rematch, and added he had no further comment.

Diaz, who announced his retirement from MMA inside the Octagon following the loss, also tested positive for marijuana back in 2007 following his win over Takanori Gomi. He was fined $3,000 and suspended for six months as a result. As a second offender he could receive a full year this time around.

When asked for comment on the matter, UFC President Dana White responded that he was “beyond disappointed”.
