"Fighter Nick Diaz, following his defeat of Takanori Gomi on the February 24, 2007 Pride event in Las Vegas, Nevada, also tested positive for Delta-9-THC. The commission suspended Diaz for 6 months from the date of his fight, which would be August 24, 2007 and fined him $3,000, which was 20 percent of his reported $15,000 purse. In addition to the suspension and fine, the NSAC also ruled that the result of the Diaz vs. Gomi contest be changed from a victory for Diaz to a result of no contest.

Apparently, the commission felt that the level for which Diaz tested at, 175, was a considering factor in his performance during the fight. Dr. Tony Alamo, the Commission's Chair, said that a result of 15 is considered positive, but that the NSAC has a threshold of 50 to test positive for THC and that they "feel very comfortable that everyone that tests positive [in Nevada] is truly positive."

Alamo went on to say, "Mr. Diaz was 175. This creates a unique situation. I was there at this fight and believe that you were intoxicated and... that it made you numb to the pain. Did it help you win? I think it did."

In his statements to the commission, Diaz said, "I wasn't under the influence when I was fighting. I don't abuse drugs normally; it was a one-time thing. It was very embarrassing for me to test positive."

He also pleaded for leniency from the Commission as he indicated that he is the primary provider for his household.

All the suspended fighters will have to provide a negative drug test to the NSAC before they will be allowed to fight again in the state of Nevada."


there ya go for people who don't want to go to the site


oo and "edit : also, I dont think ive seen anyone quit a fight from just the pain from punches, they get knocked out or the ref stops it because buddy isnt defending himself, regardless if pot did make his face numb (which I can guarantee it didnt) it still wouldnt affect the amount of pressure your head can take before getting knocked out."

i have one name for you, Pete Spratt vs Matt serra

Diaz victory over Gomi Ruled No Contest

Bipolar informin ya again, this time the news ain't so pretty.


Let's cut to the chase.


NSAC (Nevada State Athletic Commission) has ruled b/c of marijuana substances found in Diaz in the Gomi bout that the bout is now ruled a No Contest and no longer a victory for Diaz.

Yes it's unfair but the doctor gives the explanation that at that weight marijuana numbs Diaz so he wouldn't feel pain. Not sure if that's the case since I don't mess with drugs and according to Diaz neither does he, he says it was a one time thing.

But that's not all.

He is also suspended from Nevada for 6 months so he won't fight in Nevada again until August.

Diaz should boycott drugs as anyone should and MMA fighters and fans alike should boycott NSAC.

It's been several years since I did weed, but I was pretty able to feel pain. You would not want to fight while stoned. It slows you down, it alters your mind/body coordination, you'd get caught because your head would be up to speed, but your body would be a snap or two behind.

Worst decision ever. Thats absolutely retarded.

Weed did not make Diaz whoop Gomi's ass. Diaz was the better fighter and to call that a NC is an injustice to everyone who watched the fight. Diaz won. Period.

I can't really feel sorry for Diaz.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
