Nick Diaz Tests Positive for Marijuana

UFC welterweight Nick Diaz has tested positive for marijuana metabolites for the second time in his career.

Today, the Nevada State Athletic Commission confirmed the testing to be positive after fighting Carlos Condit at UFC 143. A possible rematch was rumored between Diaz and Condit, but now will be scratched as Diaz will face disciplinary action.
