Nate Diaz To USADA: You No Longer Welcome To My Home Anymore

It Looks Like Nate Diaz Has Some Message For United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA)

Now many readers are well aware of what happened earlier this month in regards to UFC 232 PPV event. UFC decided to move the entire fight card from Las Vegas to inside The Forum in Inglewood, California after it was announced that the former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones recent drug test found traces of steroid Turinabol. It’s the same metabolite which saw his last victory overturned into a no contest at UFC 214.

Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) doesn’t have adequate time to investigate the matter. However, California commission granted Jones a fight license after ‘Bones’ agreed to participate in VADA drug testing ahead of his fight. This whole fiasco let many fans outraged, dozens of athletes, most of whom need this payday more than Jones, are now rushing to change their travel plans, no doubt affecting their training camp, other additional costs, moreover those fighters are subject to pay more taxes.

Jones arch rival Daniel Cormier didn’t hold back and react to ‘Bones’ recent drug debacle by saying that’s the ‘craziest sh*t I’ve ever seen.’ Now lightweight contender Nate Diaz who are being critical of this fiasco.

“USADA can’t come over anymore..” Nate Diaz wrote on Twitter.

Not only that Eddie Alvarez also took aim at Jones recent drug mess:

We are not hitting balls or pucks . We are trying to damage a mans head , A human head . Zero is the amount of drugs that should be allowed #JustSayNO

At UFC 202 press conference back in 2016, The Stockton, California native was asked about Jones being tested positive for PEDs, Diaz bluntly said: “everybody’s on steroids.

Nate Diaz last fought in August of 2016, where he lost to Conor Mcgregor via majority decision. Diaz was slated to return to the Octagon against Dustin Poirier at UFC 230 in November, but the bout scrapped off after Poirier pulled out due to an unfortunate injury.

Ever since the rumors are whether Nate Diaz will ever return to Octagon, if he does plan to return, no doubt he has to open a door for USADA, as UFC recently extends the contract with the anti-doping agency and increase drug testing by 30 to 40 percent.

“USADA came to us and said, ‘hey, we think you should up the amount of testing that you are doing,’ So we just renewed the contract with USADA and we are increasing our testing numbers between 30 to 40 percent,” Novitzky told Joe Rogan Experience (via BJPenn). “Currently, the first three years of the program under contract were approximately 700 tests and starting this next year we are going to up that to around 4300-4400 tests. It’s going to be more of a burden, there is going to be USADA showing up at more doorsteps early in the morning for more of our athletes but I think this is a perfect example that that increased volume in the testing can actually be a protection to the athlete.”
