Diaz passes 158 drug test, camp requests further info from Commission

Six fighters were randomly tested at UFC 158 in Montreal for performance enhancement drugs. Of those was headliner Nick Diaz. All tests have been reported by the commission as coming back clean, despite Diaz reporting that there would be a chance he failed his test once again for marijuana metabolites, he has come up entirely clean.

“I think [at UFC 143] I tested for a metabolite or a nanogram, it was hardly [a trace] so I just did a little more than I did last time so, sorry if I don’t pass the test, but I think it should work out. I’ve passed plenty of them before, unless they just weren’t testing me. I wonder how much they test people around here (glancing at St. Pierre).”

Here’s what Diaz’s camp is requesting of the commission:

Mr. Diaz’s sample tested negative. We have now requested from the Quebec Commission (the Regie):

1) A copy of the Regie’s request to the laboratory specifying which substances the lab was asked to test the sample for (if any), and

2) A copy of any documents received from the lab conducting the drug testing showing the precise test results for Mr. Diaz for all substances the sample was actually tested for.

Jonathan Tweedale of Diaz’s camp refused to explain the request, but many are assuming that Diaz believes there was foul play involved. The camp is also currently calling to question as to why there was an unprecedented allowance of a fraction of a pound in the weigh-ins for the title fight, as title fights are not allowed the extra pound that all other non-title fights allow. Further, Diaz had made allegations that Georges St-Pierre is in fact a steroid user and the UFC is very aware and helping to ‘cover up’ his use.
