Imagine hanging out with Snoop Dogg and UFC President Dana White and just talking shop for a bit. What kind of topics of conversation would you bring up?

The two were hanging out recently as a preview for GGN News was released and they got to talking about everything from the Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor fight to the rules of using marijuana as a fighter.

Snoop questioned the UFC’s drug policy and asked White, “So we don’t want no drugs, no nothing in you? We want you to be water and vegetables?”

“You have to be 100 percent. They don’t want any type of pill or drug that would put you in harm’s way,” said White. “Have you ever taken a sleeping pill? Sometimes you take a sleeping pill and you’re still f**ked up the next day. So you don’t want to go in against a guy that day after you’re still feeling the effects of a sleeping pill.”

Snoop said that all makes sense and brought up the case of fans wanting Nick Diaz to get back in the Octagon as he was previously suspended for testing positive for marijuana.

“Here’s the thing,” White said after Snoop mentioned Diaz’s name. “Here’s the thing, you have to not smoke marijuana for 24 hours,” White said laughing.

“That’s it?” Snoop questioned.

“Yeah, he fights three times a year,” added White. “So you can’t stay off marijuana for 24 hours, for three days a year?”

Interesting bit of information coming from White here regarding the particular rule and Nick Diaz’s situation.
