Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Let the Breathless Speculation Begin: Keith Kizer Says *Somebody* Pissed Dirty at UFC 143

(Maybe this is why the Condit fight ain’t happening?)

According to Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer, an unnamed fighter that competed on Saturday night’s UFC 143 card in Las Vegas had a drug test come back positive for an unspecified substance.

Here’s Kizer’s quote from an email we received today:

“Thank you for the many email and phone calls.  I am still waiting for all the steroid and drug test results to come back.  We did have at least one positive test.  I will send out an email later today on that matter.”

Although it’s a vague statement that doesn’t confirm if the test was a pre or post-fight and the guilty party could be anyone who fought at the event, the Internet has been abuzz with rumors that it’s Nick Diaz and that the card-carrying marijuana prescribed curmudgeon is believed to have pot in his system.

In other news, the sky is blue, water is wet and Chael Sonnen is a Republican.

We’ll reserve judgment until we get the press release from NSAC this afternoon before we begin pointing fingers, but it could be Matt Riddle or Ed Herman. Riddle seemed less all over the place in his post-fight interview and may have been under the influence of Ritalin and Herman had to be on some kind of goofballs to say that he wants to fight Anderson Silva next.

We’ll have more info as we receive it.

If I was Dana I'd fire him. He's failed tests in the past and skipping the press conference wasn't helpful. Not that I think smoking weed is a big deal... I don't, but knowing the commission DOES then why put the company in the position to look stupid again in the future. Especially when they are fighting especially in places like NY to be legitimate.

Looks like somebody pissed Ecto Cooler
................................................................. Or they swapped Diaz's sample with one of mutant nunja turtles, I'm thinking Donatello, he always used to eat more than his share of the Pizza's

I can honestly say from research carried out by me , using myself as a guinea pig, weed is not a performance enhancer. I could think of nothing worse than getting ready for a professional MMA bout while I was stoned.
You might think your indestructible, but your depth perception, hand eye coordination all get fucked up big time, well thats what used to happen to me, and I was just playing Rugby

dumb ass! hope you were serious about being done, because I bet DW ain't gonna be pleased with this.

Who is surprised is was Diaz and for weed? No one.
I personally think testing for cannabis is ridiculous and not a cause for disciplinary action. I may not be a Nick Diaz fan but, I dont think he deserves to be punished for smoking pot. Thats just stupid.

Today, executive director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, Keith Kizer, released the e-mail below to members of the media:

The following athletes were tested:  Nick Diaz, Carlos Condit, Fabricio Werdum, Josh Koscheck, Renan Barao, Ed Herman, Dustin Poirier, Max Hollaway, Matt Riddle, Henry Martinez, Edwin Figueroa, Alex Caceres, Matt Brown, Chris Cope, Rafael Natal, Michael Kuiper, Stephen Thompson and Dan Stittgen.  All 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.

@amsterdamheavy -- Hey pot head...why don't you pay attention and read my earlier comment -- I said I did not know and the other guys might be right...fucking learn to read before commenting -- typical -- I was just saying what I had heard -- also you are saying yourself that it might improve oxygen absorption -- including @japanadian saying about running marathons and shit while high -- Last thing -- just like I don't know for sure he was high during the Gomi fight -- You don't know either if he was not -- What are the odds -- take a guess smart guy -- He is a regular smoker so odds are he could very well have been smoking right before the fight...he has on record saying shit lying that in his previous fights -- Go smoke some more weed
intercept440- February 9, 2012 at 2:05 pm
the likely culprits are suspect A) Nick Diaz Stockton pothead.
Suspect B)Fabrico Werdum (looking a lot less lanky than he usually does).
Suspect C) Josh AssMotorboater Koscheck ( as someone above said this could be anything from Massengil To illegal steriodlaced Horsesemen,or tainted ecoli from a large male nurse).
.odds are pointing to those three asstards
amsterdamheavy- February 9, 2012 at 2:05 pm
@vyaparr - You dont know he "was high" *during* the Gomi fight. He tested positive for weed after the fight ya, but weed stays detectable in urine for up to 4 days if you smoke ONCE, and up to 4 weeks if youre a daily smoker. THC isnt liek alcohol, it doesnt dull pain at all, if anything it makes you MORE sensitive. Youve never smoked, so how about you shut the fuck about about things you dont know about?


Another thing; there have been several studies done that very light smoking (1 hit) can actually improve oxygen absorption.

@ shatterproof --
i've done a half marathon and a sprint triathlon while high. it might not enhance your performance but you can still do anything that you would normally be able to do. As for it being a pain killer, that is only specific to certain types of weed. some types will make the pain worse. P.S. no fat chicks!
Japanadian- February 9, 2012 at 1:42 pm
I hope it was koschek

Regardless of pain, it wouldn't prevent you from getting KO'd if you're hit on the button. I smoke tree all the time and its not a performance enhancer, its a muscle and mind relaxer. It does help to expand your lungs though, which is why asthma patients have actually benefited from cannabis. But so does exercising at 11,000 feet in the air.
vyapaar- February 9, 2012 at 1:13 pm
@google -- What happened in the Gomi fight then? He was busted for it fighting while high ..
google- February 9, 2012 at 1:02 pm
You may be able to deal with pain better, but how the hell would you be able to fight thinking everyone in the crowd knows that your high.
