Could it be Nick Diaz?
The news is just now hitting airwaves that Keith Kizer the Executive Director of The Nevada State Athletic Commission is saying that one UFC 143 competitor has tested positive for banned substances.
In my discussions with Cesar Gracie last night he stated that a “temporary issue” will keep Nick Diaz out of competition for a while.
While no official word has yet been given, it would appear as if yesterday’s reports of the Condit vs. Diaz rematch being off are true and that Diaz faces a suspension due to a failed test.
This is still just my best speculation on events as I put the pieces of the puzzle together, but all signs, especially after my discussion with Cesar last night point to this being the likely outcome.
Stay tuned to BJPENN.COM as we continue to untangle this saga.
