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!!


(The Greatest and The Realest, seen here discussing Russian trade policies and how to properly roll a blunt. via Martin Sano Jr.)

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.

Disaster.

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

Wow.

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.

Details after the jump.

UFC 183 Video Highlights/Results: Silva Decisions Diaz in Bizarre Battle, Miesha Tate’s Comeback + More

It might not have been as flashy and/or violent as most of us predicted, but Anderson Silva and Nick Diaz‘s UFC 183 headliner was every bit the circus act that it promised to be by virtue of being booked in the first place. While not without its lulls in action, Silva vs. Diaz saw the former/current(?) GOAT return to form against Stockton’s finest, picking him apart over five rounds en route to a unanimous decision victory. And speaking of a return to form, you best believe that Diaz still thought he won that sh*t.

For now, the future seems uncertain for Silva, whose family has grown increasingly vocal about his need to retire. But for the time being, let’s all just relish in his performance at UFC 183, which capped off one of the most improbable comebacks in the “modern era” of MMA, as the Zuffa heads would likely call it.

Check out the full highlights from Silva vs. Diaz above, courtesy of UFC on FOX, then head after the jump for video highlights of Woodley vs. Gastelum, Lauzon vs. Iaquinta, Tate vs. McMann, + more

Four Opponents Anderson Silva Could Face Next Instead Of Chris Weidman


(Sadly, a rematch with Lady Pavlova remains off the table.)

By CP Reader Nasir Jabbar

This weekend, Anderson Silva comes back from his grizzly leg-injury when he takes on Stockton’s finest, Nick Diaz. UFC president Dana White has stated that Silva could face the winner of Weidman-Belfort if victorious, which seems relatively insane given that he is fighting a welterweight coming off a two year vacation (UFC politics, baby!). The possibility of Belfort-Silva 2 could be huge especially in Brazil, but whether Silva wants to fight against a Brazilian is another question. If normality remains with Weidman trouncing the-now-off-TRT-Belfort, Weidman-Silva 3 is a fight I would actually pass up.

Both meetings ended bizarrely, with the second fight ending more unusual than their first, as crazy as that was. Silva has gone 0-2 opposite Weidman, and in the twelve or so minutes of action between them, its fair to say that Weidman has gotten the better of Silva. So instead of playing a (literally) broken record, here are four possible opponents the GOAT could face off with if he wins or loses at UFC 183, because, you know, he still has a few fights left on his new contract.
