Dana White: I don't see Nick Diaz winning with NSAC

by Steven Marrocco | source: mmajunkie.com
 

"I get the whole thing they're going for – the metabolites or whatever it is," said UFC President Dana White following Thursday's pre-UFC on FOX 3 press conference. "Nick can't smoke marijuana leading up to a fight. You just can't do it."

"Marijuana's illegal. You can't smoke it. There's a list of things you can't do. Here's the thing with the Nevada State Athletic Commission: If you're doing something, they ask you to tell them. Just be honest. Come up front and say you did something."

On May 14, the commission will go head-to-head with Diaz. Las Vegas-based attorney Ross Goodman filed suit on behalf on the fighter this past week.

Diaz's suspension scratched a rematch with Condit while Overeem's failure scratched a headliner opposite heavyweight champ Junior Dos Santos at UFC 146. When asked which situation frustrates him more, White chose Overeem.

"Nick Diaz didn't tell me he wasn't smoking weed, believe me," he said. "It's one of those things that's a banned substance, you can't do it, and we'll see how this thing plays out. But I just don't see him winning."

This dumbass.....Anyways he is never going to win the appeal. Quick buck for Diaz lawyer. Really do not understand Diaz decision since he is always bitching about not getting paid enough. After the suspension Diaz GSP will happen right away so Nick does not need to stress. I still think GSP will take him down all five rounds but Nick might prove me wrong or conjure up one of his awesome submissions.Anyways dont be scared but also dont be stupid homie seems tagline for this thread.

Nah, I mean it's not like the owner wasn't a commissioner for the NSAC or they hired a former commissioner. They are tight at all with the NSAC./sarcasmSo...having the Diaz-Condit rematch get scratched and losing the main event of arguably their biggest card of the year (Overeem) is part of Dana's master business plan?  This is good stuff for Dana and the UFC?  Are you fucking retarded?  Serious question. I think he may be slightly retarded.

Alright since you haven't done any research yourself I will leave you with this:"It is very important for athletes to understand the definition of “in-competition” for the sporting events in which they compete. Athletes must ensure that all substances prohibited in-competition have completely cleared from their body before competition. If this is not possible, or if the chronic use of one or more of these medications is needed, the athlete should apply for a Therapeutic Use Exemption.""1. Athletes should be aware that cannabinoids may be retained in fat tissue following chronic use and may be detected weeks after use. There have been situations where sudden weight loss has caused cannabinoid metabolites stored in fat to be released in detectable levels. USADA strongly advises athletes not to use cannabinoids at any time."- WADA Athlete Guide to the 2012 Prohibited List

If you don't think DW has inside info on which way the wind is blowing with the politicians, then, you really just haven't been paying close attention.
