Diaz Camp Formally Requests Drug Testing Details From Quebec Commission


UFC 158 has come and gone, but in typical Nick Diaz fashion the media and fans are forced to still talk about it.

La Régie des alcools des courses et des jeux (RACJ), the athletic commission in Quebec, confirmed yesterday that they tested six UFC 158 competitors for banned substances.

They would not release the names of the six-tested fighters, however the commission did confirm that they didn’t find any positive results from the competitors.

The Diaz camp has decided that that’s just not good enough and they want more answers.

In a report from MMAWeekly:

Jonathan Tweedale, a representative of Nick Diaz’s camp, however, revealed to MMAWeekly.com that Diaz was one of the six.

Not only did Tweedale confirm that Diaz was tested and produced negative results, but added that Diaz’s camp is requesting further information from the Quebec commission.

Mr. Diaz’s sample tested negative. We have now requested from the Quebec Commission (the Regie):

1) A copy of the Regie’s request to the laboratory specifying which substances the lab was asked to test the sample for (if any), and

2) A copy of any documents received from the lab conducting the drug testing showing the precise test results for Mr. Diaz for all substances the sample was actually tested for.

Tweedale would not elaborate on why they requested further information from the commission, but it should be noted that Diaz’s camp has already challenged the RACJ over its handling of the UFC 158 weigh-ins.

The Diaz camp stated that the RACJ relaxed its own rules for the main event, in particular, because Georges St-Pierre was involved.

“The Quebec Commission deliberately relaxed the rule (regarding a bout’s contracted weight) in this case and, by its own admission, allowed their home-town fighter to ‘make weight’ even if he weighed more than the contracted weight,” Tweedale noted in an earlier statement to MMAWeekly.com regarding the controversial weigh-in situation.

St-Pierre won the five-round championship fight by unanimous decision.

    Pathetic, absolutely pathetic.

    You were manhandled, get over it.

    • Sparta says:

      Manhandled by a man with a fever and a sprained ligament to say the least… To be honest, I would LOVE to see a rematch as to witness what GSP could do at 100% to Diaz.

    Pretty tired of hearing him whine….

  8. Dddddddd says:

    Nicks the current guy that’s gonna help level out the playing field. Who else has ever had as many accusations of cheating as Goerges? Anderson has toppled so many fighters that are absolutely legitimate and besides the knee to Chaels chest where’s the conspiracys surrounding his fights as far as cheating? All I know is if I was accused as much as Goerges it would be important to me to make sure there is no shadow of a doubt I’m for real. Wheres the comfort in knowing for Goerges fans? Maybe he’s legit and doesn’t care enough to give them that piece of mind or he’s cheating. No matter he’s made enough money off me and you to make us all know and believe.

    • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

      Not bad analysis except one thing. It was an ILLEGAL knee to the face of a downed opponent that the REF, UFC and Commission pussed out on. It should have been a DQ if anybody had balls. Silva was protected then.

      • The Way Of The Dutchman says:

        You are the only one who thinks that knee was illegal.

        Even in close-up it wasn’t in the face. Only thing that happened was Silva landing the knee to the sternum and because of that force Sonnen’s head came forward and headbutted Silva’s thigh.

        The knee landed on the chest so it was perfectly legal. Even Sonnen admitted it.

        • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

          Are you kidding me? Now Sonnen has headbutted Silva’s thigh??? Is that is what it has degraded too? On the contrary, most people in the MMA business KNOW that it was an illegal strike to the head of a downed opponent. Only one’s that seems to not know it are biased Silva fans and PC media types. To the person, I have talked to unbiased Silva fans, that it was an illegal knee. It’s obvious. Put your self in that position and you got hit by that illegal strike. Would you think it was legal?

        • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

          Not only did Silva hit a downed opponent with an illegal knee, he held on to his shorts and grabbed the fence. So yah Silva is a cheater. I’m cool with it, just calla spade a spade. He’s a fukced up cheating slimeball champion. I’m cool with it. His blind fans need to wake up and be cool with the fact that he is a piece of crap.

    And people were so gullible to believe that Lance Armstrong was clean. Same scenario, except one is much more obvious.

  10. The Way Of The Dutchman says:

    It might be best for him to just move on, but the weigh-in thing was shady.

    Nate had to sweat out from 156 to 155 because he had to make weight on point before fighting Henderson. Now Nick Diaz made sure his weight was on point and on the day of the weigh-in he weighs exactly 170 or less and he gets an informal ‘off the records’ heads-up that all of a sudden it’s allowed to weigh in at 170.9. That’s not right.

    It may have not made a difference in the outcome but that doesn’t make it right.

    • allmightysandman says:

      …but for the record, no one has said that GSP was over weight. So the whining really just looks bad on dick diaz. IMO

  11. Dick Diaz says:

    this camp is one big cry baby… there is no conspiracy with the weight or the drug test…
