Nate Diaz and weed smoking seem to go hand in hand, but in front of USADA?
There have been many strange stories told by UFC fighters about their encounters with the U.S Anti-Doing Agency (USADA) but Nate Diaz may take the cake. The USADA was put in place by the UFC to perform random drug testing on athletes both in and out of competition. Often USADA agents will arrive at a fighter’s house, gym, or anywhere really, unannounced and must take either blood or urine. On Friday one of these agents was met with a surprise when he paid Nate Diaz a visit.
Nate Diaz made a USADA agent wait around while he smoked
On Friday afternoon USADA came calling to Diaz’s place of residence. They were there to collect urine, but when Diaz could not provide the specified amount the man from USADA had to wait for more. In the meantime, Diaz lit up a smoke. He took to his Instagram to document to interaction and broadcast it to the world.

“This man won’t get out of my house because I didn’t give him enough piss,” he said via MMA Junkie. “I’ve pissed all I can my (expletive). How many liters do I have to do? … I’ve got two more liters of piss I’ve got to give him. He won’t get out of here until (then). DK is my guy, but USADA can f–king suck a d–k. Come back in six hours, I’ll give you two more liters. Sorry, DK.”
Diaz has been known to smoke a great deal of weed. Marijuana is no longer a banned substance in the UFC for recreational use. Although it seems strange to be smoking right in front of the man coming to give you a drug test, Diaz is in the clear. Even though Diaz is complying with the terms of the UFC’s agreement with the USADA, it is not a great look for the agency. Diaz is heading into his last fight in the UFC when he takes on Khamzat Chimaev in September and is clearly not afraid of breaking or bending rules at this point.
