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

Nick Diaz Suspended for FIVE YEARS, Fined $150,000 For Failed UFC 183 Drug Test

(“Yeah, these commissioners are a bunch of f*cking clowns anyway and–wait, what happened?”)

The Nevada State Athletic Commission has reached a new low, Nation.

Just a few weeks after slapping Anderson Silva with a one-year ban for a positive steroid test at UFC 183 — which came following an intense and inexplicably thorough investigation about Thai sex drugs – the commission has suspended Nick Diaz for five goddamn years for his positive marijuana test at the very same event.

Yep, five years. For weed.

Details and Diaz’s reaction to the hearing are after the jump. 


Here Are Those Videos of Khabib Nurmagomedov and the Diaz Bros Brawling at WSOF 22

Although the Diaz brothers have always struck me as the epitome of professionalism and class both inside and out of the octagon, it appears that even the most mild-mannered personalities can come unglued from time to time.

Just moments prior to Rousimar Palhares proving his assholishness outright at WSOF 22 last weekend, the youngest of the brothers Diaz engaged in what I’m sure was a rousing debate about the current GOP race with fellow UFC lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov — I’m guessing Diaz sided with the brash, incomprehensible arrogance of Donald Trump, whereas Khabib was more of a Chris Christie fan. In any case, this argument quickly escalated into an all-out brawl, with members of both crews exchanging haymakers before security could separate them. Then Nick Diaz threw a beer at Khabib, because hey, #Trump2016Bitch.

The majority of the scrap was caught on camera by MMAInterviews, but this being a Diaz brawl and all, you can rest assured that it spilled out into the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino just moments later.

Nick Diaz Sentenced to HARD TIME in Jail for String of DUI’s

(Never before has a courtroom sketch so perfectly captured the essence of its subject.)

The Lodi City Correctional Center is about to get a whole lot realer, Nation.

If you recall, notorious UFC welterweight Nick Diaz — currently serving a temporary suspension for his 1000th drug test failure for marijuana back at UFC 183 — was arrested on suspicion of DUI back in September of 2014. This came following a similar arrest for driving under the influence 10 months earlier, which he plead not guilty to while presumably throwing some DMX-level shade at the presiding judge. If convicted on both charges, Diaz was looking at some serious time behind bars.


“The Last Hemperor” Caption Contest: And The Winner Is…

(“Can we hurry this up? I’m on my way to the scene of Aleks’ latest crime against humanity.”)

It has been many moons since we had our last caption contest, and boy oh boy did it show in last week’s results. I’d like to think this was you Taters working out the comedy ring rust, so to speak. Some of you opted for stoner jokes, because Nick Diaz, some of you opted to make fun of the gentleman on the right’s attire (WSOF vet Martin Sano, FWIW), and some of you didn’t really even attempt jokes at all, but merely observed that Diaz was in the same picture as the GOAT. Overall, I’d say this was a moderate success.

But onto the winning caption, which came via our Facebook page and completely destroyed the competition…


Caption Contest: Win a Random DVD From Danga’s Vault!!

Can I level with you for a second, Nation? I’ve spent the last two days combatting a sickness something awful — chest congestion, stomach bug, milk leg, hot tub foot, scrotal migraines…the whole nine. It’s just been an absolute bacchanal of contamination and infection going on inside my body, the root of which I highly speculate to be the cobra whiskey I bought off a street urchin in (Boston) Chinatown earlier in the week.

But having awoken today with the internal storm mostly behind me, I feel like switching things up and passing along the positive vibes to you, the readers, with a good old fashioned caption contest. Lucky for me, this photo of Fedor Emelianenko and Nick Diaz made its way onto r/mma this morning, giving me/you the perfect opportunity to cash in on my newfound generosity.

You know the deal by now. Come up with your best captions for this photo — either in the comments section below, or on our Facebook page if said comments section isn’t working (which, let’s be honest, it probably isn’t). If you’re funny enough, you’ll win a random DVD from my extensive video library. Will it be an event DVD, like UFC 91 or 111? An unapologetically terrible movie starring an MMA fighter, like In the Blood or Scorpion King XVIII? Or maybe just highlights from my family trip to Myrtle Beach? BRING THE FUNNY AND FIND OUT!


ICYMI: NSAC Reveals Anderson Silva Failed His UFC 183 Post-Fight Test As Well [FROWNY FACE]

If you didn’t happen to catch last night’s NSAC hearing because you don’t even work part-time for an MMA blog and have a life, then boy did you miss out (not really). Set to a soothing soundtrack of nearby construction work, the 3-hour meeting was as much of a non-factor as it possibly could have been. At one point, Pat Lundvall’s phone went off and it was the Benny Hill theme song. Seriously. It happened. Check out the “blooper reel” (a blooper reel!) above for another highlight.

And the NSAC themselves, my God (*kisses fingers*). In a meeting that was supposed to determine the fighting futures of Anderson Silva and Nick Diaz, the chairmen and women of the most frustratingly incompetent organization outside of a Comcast call center spent over an hour discussing the idea of placing a computer chip in MMA gloves in order to more accurately score fights. They spent another hour arguing about whether or not judges should be scoring fights with iPads, because penciling in a number between 8 and 10 is just getting too damn confusing. Did I mention the cosmic irony of the Benny Hill theme song?

But in the few moments when NSAC wasn’t struggling to take a piss without dribbling on their shoes, they did actually manage to reveal some information regarding Anderson Silva’s post-fight drug test. No spoilers, but it will breaka you heart.


What Was More Heartbreaking: Anderson Silva’s Leg Break or Positive Test?

By Nasir Jabbar

After a couple nights spent crying into a pillow and questioning everything I have come to know about this (occasionally) great sport, I’ve finally mustered up some courage to write about the whole Anderson Silva positive drug test.

To be honest, UFC 183 had a freakshow feel to it the moment the main event was announced, then it was just a straight up fiasco which included botched weight cuts, a fighter collapsing on fight night, and most notably, both main-eventers failing their drug tests.

Silva has been involved in huge back-to-back fights and the post-fight aftermath has proved to be even bigger. Both situations are unforgettable, but it got me thinking, which was more heartbreaking?


On Anderson Silva, Nick Diaz, and Compounding the Misery of MMA Fans

By CP Reader Farooq Ahmed

The UFC and its “war on drugs” continues.

MMA fans by now know that both Anderson Silva and Nick Diaz failed drugs tests leading up to/after their UFC 183 headlining act. On a fight card that promised so much leading up to the main event, the fight itself turned out to be more of a frustration between the two middleweights than anything to write home about.

But hey, no big deal right? Anderson Silva is back, Nick Diaz gave the people what they wanted and we all felt like we got our money’s worth.



NSAC Tests Confirm That Nick Diaz Was High As a Kite In the Weeks Leading Up To UFC 183

If you hadn’t noticed by now, Nick Diaz is something of an anomaly. He says he hates fighting, yet it’s seemingly all he understands. He both fights too much and not enough to support his family…that he hopes to one day acquire. He is both a laid-back stoner and the drunk guy at the bar who will smack you for looking at him the wrong way. He has no belief, but he believes, he’s a walking contradiction (and he ain’t got no riiiiiiiiiight).

So it more or less falls in line with Diaz’s way of thinking that he would take a two-year break from the sport that has given him everything, complain about how little said sport has given him, rejoin the workforce, and be forced right back out of a job on account of his own willing incompetence. Does that make any sense? It shouldn’t.

The point is, Diaz pulled the equivalent of a hit-and-run on the UFC when he once again failed a post-fight drug test for marijuana. And today, NSAC test results confirm that he wasn’t even trying to hide it in the weeks prior to UFC 183.


Anderson Silva, Nick Diaz Fail UFC 183 Drug Tests for Drostanolone, Marijuana


There’s really no way to beat around the bush here, so let’s get right to it. Last night, it was revealed that Anderson Silva tested positive for two types of anabolic steroids in an out-of-competition drug test given on January 9th. His UFC 183 opponent, Nick Diaz, also tested positive for marijuana metabolites (AGAIN), albeit in in his UFC 183 post-fight drug test.

Son. of. a. bitch.
