Some people are destined in life to mess up everything .... Thank God he lost to Condit, at least he won't be stripped of the belt!!

Sounds like a repeat offender in Nevada gets 12 months suspension.

It will be interesting to see whether strings will be pulled by the UFC, whatever that may involve, or if they decide he's too much trouble for a now mainstream sport and they dump him.

He's a great cash cow for the UFC, but this has to be weighed against him not playing the game....or does this just enhance his AntiHero thing he's got going?

If your job requires that you don't smoke dope, you don't. That is if you care about financial stability, and your future.

The guy is a drymounting idiot. Great fighter, but an idiot. I'm glad.... because I can't stand him, or his "style".

Im not sure if the UFC will dump him, but I seriously doubt he gets his title shot anytime soon now. If you can't trust the fighter to pass a drug test, how can you give him that kind of fight. It's like with Rumble Johnson, no way they could ever throw him in another big fight with him missing weight by that much. But in that case, they dumped him, and rightfully so.

UFC Heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos and former Strikeforce and DREAM Heavyweight champ Alistair Overeem is in the works for UFC 146, which is scheduled to go down on May 26th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta was stuck on a 18-hour flight back from Brazil and took to his Twitter to help kill the time. Despite testing positive for marijuana for the second time in his controversial career, Fertitta claims Diaz will be welcomed back to the Octagon once his impending suspension is lifted.

“He will be back,” Fetitta tweeted. “Really like the kid just needs to get it together. I’m a sap for real fighters.”

Fertitta also confirms Tito vs. Griffin III, Mir vs. Velasquez

"I was very disappointed," Gracie said on The MMA Hour. "Everyone knows he smokes marijuana medicinally in California. He has a legal right to do it in this state."

Gracie said he was the one who was informed of the positive test and passed along the word to Diaz, and that Diaz had thought he had stopped using marijuana for long enough before the UFC 143 fight with Carlos Condit, and had enough water pass through his system, that a test would come up negative.

"He was surprised he tested positive," Gracie said. "He does the same ritual every fight for the last five years. He stops it in time and he cleanses his system, works out like crazy, drinks a lot of water and purges his system of it."

Gracie said he thought Diaz's weight cut may have contributed to the marijuana metabolites staying in his system longer than usual. Gracie said the Diaz camp has hired an attorney, Ross Goodman of Las Vegas, who will help to appeal to the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Watching the fuel tv card right now and I must say Jon Anik is doing a much better job, he must of read some of the criticism for the last card he was commentating. He doesn't sound like an auctioneer babbling over every second of the fight and Kenny is getting a chance to talk.

Stann is very good on the mic. I wonder how he would do calling a fight.
