Nick Diaz, the erstwhile MMA star whose younger brother made millions doing what Diaz’s do (i.e., not give a f**k), simply does not care. He doesn’t care about being suspended, he doesn’t care about UFC belts, and he certainly doesn’t care about USADA, which has been trying to meet up with him to test him (and let’s be honest: Diaz would only ever fail for one thing, and that thing ain’t no performance enhancer).
It’s gotten to the point where the UFC has had to release a statement on the matter. The crux of it: Nick Diaz doesn’t care.
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.
