UFC's Condit Talks Nick Diaz | I Think His Attitude Towards Marijuana “Came Back And Bit Him In The A$$”

“I don’t care (about marijuana use). The thing about it is, it’s something they test for. It’s against the Nevada Athletic Commission. I don’t really consider it to be a performance-enhancing drug, but the fact is, they’re testing for it. And you know they’re testing for it. Whatever you do in between camps, if you know they’re testing for this stuff then you’ve got to figure something out. In the past, he’s said, ‘Oh, I can smoke and I can pass these tests no problem.’ That attitude kind of came back and bit him in the ass.”
