The Nevada State Athletic Commission has today confirmed that a fighter competing on last Saturday's UFC 143 card has tested positive for banned substances.
NSAC Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer made the confirmation via email on Thursday, stating that while at least one athlete has tested positive, he is unable to offer an specifics at the time.
"Thank you for the many email and phone calls. I am still waiting for all the steroid and drug test results to come back," Kizer explained. "We did have at least one positive test. I will send out an email later today on that matter."
The event, which took place February 4th from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, was headlined by a Welterweight interim title clash between Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit. Following the bout's controversial conclusion, talks of a rematch began to emerge, but were abruptly halted by Diaz's manager, Cesar Gracie, who has declined to comment any further.
