Dana White hasn’t ever been known by the public as have much hair. However, it turns out that could be for the best, as the UFC President would have likely pulled it all out over the past few days based on the whirlwind of controversy surrounding a potential rematch between welterweights Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit. White has now been given one more thing to stress about as it appears Diaz has tested positive for marijuana use for the second time in his career.
An email from the Nevada State Athletic Commission mentioned Diaz was found to have “marijuana metabolites” in the sample he submitted in relation to his UFC 143 headliner with Condit.
A “beyond disappointed” White said he is letting the NSAC handle things and hasn’t commented in any detail on the situation. Diaz’s camp has also been quiet since the news broke this afternoon.
Diaz also tested positive in Nevada stemming from a 2007 fight against Takanori Gomi where he watched a win changed into a No Contest in addition to being suspended for six months and fined $3,000.
He is now facing a steeper fine based on the amount of money he made for his bout against Condit as well as a yearlong suspension based on it being his second offense in the State.
