“My understanding was he passed the test, then he fought and then after he passed the test, he did not smoke. What we think happened is the exertion of the fight affected the test and that’s why he tested positive.”
“It’s not a shocker. His DNA is THC, let’s face it. No one is surprised by that. I’m disappointed by it. It’s just a distraction. It sucks. I don’t want any distractions. The guy is such a brilliant fighter. I’d rather be talking about how skilled he is.”
“He doesn’t take pain medications. When he’s in pain after a workout, he likes to smoke marijuana. It calms him down and relieves the pain in his body. It’s his way to naturally deal with pain and other problems.”
“I think the public knows Nick smokes marijuana.He obviously wasn’t stoned during the fight.”
