August 10, Nick Diaz Fails to Show for Drug Test.....
Nick Diaz’s love of marijuana is unabashed and well documented, but he may have finally reached the point where even he will be forced to admit that it’s a problem that is negatively affecting his life. According to multiple reports this afternoon, Diaz failed to contact the California State Athletic Commission about rescheduling the pre-licensing drug test that he missed on Friday, which means that he will not be fighting Jay Hieron for the Strikeforce welterweight title at “Carano vs. Cyborg” this Saturday night.
Instead, TUF 7’s Jesse “JT Money” Taylor will step in to face Hieron in a non-title affair, meaning the most troubled Strikeforce card ever just took another crippling blow. Presumably Diaz is listening to a voicemail message from Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker right now explaining that he’s not mad at him, just very, very disappointed. And somehow, much to his surprise, that will make Nick feel so much worse.
