Earlier today, I saw a comment from Dana White that he didn’t think Nick Diaz would ever fight in the UFC again. I didn’t think anything of it at the time because Dana says random shit constantly and Diaz is Diaz and liable to also say random shit.
I highly doubt it,” White told MMAjunkie.com on Wednesday. “I don’t know. I honestly don’t think that, and I can’t speak for Diaz. You’d have to speak with Nick himself, but if you ask me … people ask me, ‘Do you think Ronda [Rousey] is coming back?’ No. I think Ronda’s going to retire. Ronda hasn’t retired, but my opinion is, I think she will. I don’t think Nick Diaz will ever fight again. I just don’t think he has the desire anymore.”
I don’t know if Dana knew at the time but he sure did seem on the nose with the Diaz part.
Mr. Nick Diaz has been flagged for a USADA violation. What appears to be his third in the past year. Let’s have the UFC lay it out for us all:
The UFC organization has been notified that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Nick Diaz of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from Diaz’s alleged accumulation of three Whereabouts Failures within a 12-month period. Diaz, like all other UFC athletes, is enrolled in USADA’s UFC Registered Testing Pool and required to file accurate Whereabouts information in order to be located for out-of-competition, no-notice testing.
USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of Diaz’s case, who has been provisionally suspended pending the final resolution of this matter. Under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full and fair legal process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. Additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.
This is the ultimate in going Full Diaz. You know he’s not on shit and he’s out of competition so no one will care if he’s smoking weed. He’s gonna be suspended because he doesn’t know how to give his phone number. What a fucking hero.
