Nick Diaz flagged for USADA Whereabouts violation

June 29, 2017

Nick Diaz has been notified of a potential UFC Anti-Doping Violation for not informing USADA about his whereabouts.


The UFC organization has been notified that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Nick Diaz of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from Diaz’s alleged accumulation of three Whereabouts Failures within a 12-month period. Diaz, like all other UFC athletes, is enrolled in USADA’s UFC Registered Testing Pool and required to file accurate Whereabouts information in order to be located for out-of-competition, no-notice testing.

Despite not having a fight, Diaz is still in the active pool of UFC contracted fighters that must abide by the USADA protocol.  It appears that Diaz has failed to take three tests.

Payout Perspective:

Whether or not you are a fan of Diaz it’s clear that a failure to test is similar to being flagged for a failed USADA test.  Diaz will have to have some excuse.  Perhaps he has some excuse but more likely than not he just did not want to test since he has no pending fight.  This excuse will not work but we will keep you updated.

    He’s done in Nevada. They aren’t going to let him off easy on this.

    Reminds me of McTapper saying he retired to duck testing.

Got something to say?
