Yesterday, Nick Diaz did an interesting thing: he admitted to being a pothead and said he could easily pass the CSAC’s piss test anyways.
“I’m more consistent about everything being a cannabis user,” Diaz said in an interview with The Times last week. “I’m happy to get loaded, hear some good music . . . I remain consistent. And I have an easy way to deal with [the drug tests].
“I can pass a drug test in eight days with herbal cleansers. I drink 10 pounds of water and sweat out 10 pounds of water every day. I’ll be fine.”
I’m surprised that Nick Diaz is willing to admit this to the press. He is, after all, dealing with the California State Athletic Commission. The last time they thought he MIGHT be smoking weed, they canned his fight without even testing him for it. They’ve done the same thing to Joe Riggs over pain medication. So now to have a fucking headline in the LA Times called “MMA fighter Nick Diaz says smoking marijuana is part of his plan” … wow.
If the CSAC follows the beaten track, you could see some fallout from this incident. But since former head goofball Armando Garcia was booted over putting his pickle in the wrong ham sandwich, who knows what the commission’s stance on this will be. All I know is that this was an incredibly stupid thing to admit a few days before you headline a freaking card. Can you imagine how bad it would be if the Shamrock / Diaz fight was scrapped over this???
