Title says it all. What do you think is going on?
I voted USADA incompetence. Nate Diaz is one guy who I believe would never cheat, and I believe him when he says that he doesn't take any risky supplements. I also don't think antidoping is as bulletproof scientifically as it presents itself. This doesn't really make much sense to be a publicity stunt, because Nate would never agree to intentionally putting himself potentially popping into conversation for publicity. I think they'd pick a different topic (weed, most likely).
Tainted supplement maybe
All I know for sure is that USADA 100% was gonna sweep it under the rug for UFC and Nate said "I didn't do shit" so fuck off.
Actually I am not sure about anything, just speculating
That's another aspect of this. If Nate is telling the truth about that, an independent investigation should be done.
UFC wants to replace Nate with Conor, give Conor a chance to redeem himself from all the fuckery.
actually I don't even agree with ^what i'm saying but it would be the golden ticket for Conor to win the world back
Nate's a vegetarian. He also doesn't strike me as the kind of guy who does things properly. His estrogen is probably elevated.
Jorge would never take that fight. Too scared
It's a bunch of bullshit and Nathan ain't having it
the ufc just tried to shakedown nate diaz.
The UFC couldn’t market the Leon Edwards/Masvidal fight. So they sold tickets on the Diaz/Masvidal fight, then UFC injected steroids into one of Nate’s CBD joints.
Nate might be playing mind games with people and taking the news day away from mcnugget. Probably nothing happening with nate.
Maybe ben askren prank called nate and pretended to be usada
MMA fans are the baby boomers of sports. You'll take your beliefs about fighters being clean to the grave lmao.
No one has any idea because the entire USADA "no test are public until we are done coming up with enough explanations first" policy removes peer review that is critical to accurate science.
As we have learned, USADA and their conflict of interest with the UFC results them using questionable science to make definitive answers. They have the ability to create a controlled pool with AMAZING data over time and share that with the scientific community.
Instead they have undermined their own credibility AND made sure that no one else benefits, but also that THEY don't benefit from review of their process and improvement.
I & many hardcore fans have no illusions of fighters being clean.
I/we do have a problem with the Org and Testing lying to the fans...insults the intelligence.
speaking generally of course, but many are of my mindset
Jonathan Jones esquire has offered his condolences.
‘Bones’ To Diaz: ‘I Know The Setup Feeling’
Impossible to comment on really without knowing what he tested for, IF he tested at all and it's not some shroom dream he had. More concerning is the allegations of being asked to keep quiet.
Why cant we just go back to commission testing ??
I'll be waiting for the clomid invoice and no explanation for Diaz just like Jones. Same thing right? right?
I understand your point. Nate is the one guy on the roster who I won't believe cheated unless the evidence is clear.
If you think USADA is the one to be trusted in this scenario, I'd say that's even more naive.
USADA's website on the substance that Nate apparently tested for:

Pretty sure their framework comes from the Dublin Police Bureau.
