Ya, except there is zero reason to suspect GSP of doping over Diaz or anyone else. For all we know Diaz could be blood doping which is completely untested and this is the reason he's always been such an amazing cardio machine... I mean he loves cycling after all lol But you'd be a retard to say that just like you'd be a retard to accuse GSP. Accuse everyone or accuse no one. And as far as track record and public comments go, GSP has stated numerous times he'd be happy with olympic and blood testing or increased random testng, and he's never once popped hot or had suspect pull outs. And to all the ppl saying this shit is shady, this is fucking par the course for most ACs the UFC deals with. How long have you guys been watching the damn sport? lol

about time all this stuff - testing, weigh in, reporting, etc - was standardized across all AC's. it's not rocket science.

Most do testing randomly...I do know that New Jersey AC tests all fighters on a card though

I thought he was just being bitchy to fuck with the comission, but that's a really good point. Only reasonable explanation I can think of besides petulance, and really, I'd imagine even Diaz might be getting his full of fucking with and taking on the comission

Maybe they just want to see if the time frame that Nick stopped smoking weed was good enough for future tests...
