Dana White “beyond disappointed” with Nick Diaz

UFC president Dana White released a short statement earlier today about the Nick Diaz marijuana failed drugtest.

“I am beyond disappointed that he tested positive for marijuana,” White said. “It is now in the hands of the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer has hinted that Diaz will face a 12 month suspension instead of the 6 month ban he received the last time he got popped.

“In the past, the norm for a positive test for marijuana is six months, but we have had two repeat offenders and they both got a 12-month suspension,” he said. “But that doesn’t necessarily mean that’s what will happen here.”
