The Underground News
 

The California State Athletic Commission has approved Team Quest standout and “Ultimate Fighter” season 8 cast member Jesse Taylor to face Jay Hieron on Aug. 15 at Strikeforce “Carano vs Cyborg.”

CSAC Assistant Executive Officer Bill Douglas informed MMWeekly.com of the development Monday afternoon.

The news comes just days after Hieron’s original opponent, Nick Diaz, failed to show up for a pre-fight drug test mandated by CSAC.

On Monday, Strikeforce officials and CSAC seemed to disagree on whether Diaz would get a second chance to take the test in Los Angeles. Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said he would speak to Douglas today to try and resolve the situation.

Diaz’s manager, Cesar Gracie, said Diaz vs. Hieron was “highly unlikely” to happen.

Good job coming up with a pretty good fight on short notice.

It's a real shame, though, because in his top fights Nick can single-handedly make you walk away from a fight card feeling great.

Nick has to get a handle on this situation, though. Who wants to bank a main event on a guy who is shaving his piss test down to the last day?

I read a quote by Barry Gordy that I think applies here. He was counseling Marvin Gaye, who believed that the IRS was an evil entity that was unjustly robbing him of his earnings. Barry said something to the effect of, "Listen, Marvin, we could argue all night about whether or not the IRS has a right to take your money, and you'd probably make a few good points. But the one point that can't be argued, and I think is most critical here, is that they will put you in jail if you don't pay taxes."

Replace the fighter who won't piss with a fighter who voluntarily pisses himself.....I see their train of thought.

Well said GMan99, and the people who bemoan marijuana and piss tests should read it and take note.

Diaz screwed himself.

I assume the title is not on the line, right?

I guess Taylor is a good enough replacement, but...

Nick Diaz/Joe Riggs has become Jesse Taylor/Jay Hieron?

^^^Taylor v. Hieron would have been a great third bout on a free card, though, wouldn't it?

California State Athletic Commission has just offically approved Jesse Taylor vs. Jay Hieron as the replacment match with Nick Diaz not getting licensed for Saturday night’s Strikefore event at the HP Pavilion and on Showtime.

It is believed at this time it will be a three round fight, and not a championship fight as scheduled. We will update later if this is not correct.

Mr. Baroni, were you asked if you would take it? Or would this not be one of those situations where you would take a fight with Jay Hieron?

It is sort of funny though with all of Coker's messages during the teleconference.

Mixed Martial Arts Champion Toby Grear provides an in-depth look into the history, medicinal use, spirituality, culture, and legal issues surrounding the Cannabis plant - more commonly known as marijuana. This provocative film explores federal and state drug policies, evolving state laws, the impact of federal interference and intimidation, patients battles with both disease and the law, and the gray area of classifying Cannabis as a performance enhancer or Drug of Abuse with regards to athletic competition.
