Dana White: I am beyond disappointed in Nick DiazPosted on February 9, 2012, 08:42 PM by Trent Reinsmith
UFC President Dana White returned to the United States today after spending time in Brazil filming the upcoming season of “The Ultimate Fighter.” White was probably looking forward to spending some time decompressing from his hectic schedule when he returned to Vegas, instead he was faced with Nick Diaz testing positive during his UFC 143 drug test.
Shortly after the Nevada State Athletic Commission released the news that Diaz had been found to have marijuana metabolites in his sample, the UFC released a statement from White, "I am beyond disappointed that he tested positive for marijuana. It is now in the hands of the Nevada State Athletic Commission."
This is the second failed drug test in Diaz’s MMA career. His first, a positive marijuana test in 2007 earned him a six-month suspension.
What do you think LowKick’ers, what would an appropriate penalty be from the NSAC and how will the UFC react?
