UFC Statement

So, can we just give GSP the GOAT moniker now? I mean, come on now. 

Oh, and Diaz failed a post-fight test for weed, which is irrelevant.

shiiiiiit, this sadness me.  I think I get why he did it, after the fight it was obvious that he had the biggest struggle of his career making that comeback.  maybe it was the pressure or trying to get in better shape training harder, who knows, but I really don't think he intended to "cheat" during the fight. I don't know it's just sad, ******* sad.

When you're 39 years old and you need to get that edge you had when you were younger, grab an ice cold Drostanolone.

Exactly what Greg said, this was about trying to hold on to who he is, in my opinion it in no way diminishes his 8+ year run as the baddest man who ever existed.

In no way does it diminish his past accomplishments. It convinces me that he needs to retire though.

The hesitance to talk about his future during the post fight press conference makes me think it was directly related to this and not all about his family not wanting him to fight anymore.Why are people failing pre-fight drug tests and still being allowed to fight?Oh yeah,cause there's a lot of money involved.This is absolutely absurd.Nick Diaz isn't a surprise but jesus he clearly couldn't give a **** about his career.

Nick diaz easily wins that fight if Anderson is not juicing like his friend VITOR. JBJ holds hands with AS to Uncle Dana's hideaway in Pahrump Nevada.

Rumor has it, he just checked himself into rehab and will be released a new man tomorrow morning.

it's sad at this point. No point in even questioning who is on something. It's better to ask who isn't

As for Nick Diaz testing positive for weed. I'll say what I do everytime someone gets busted for weed; I don't care. It's not a performance enhancer. Should you know better than to take it within the time you know you're gonna be tested? Sure. But I don't view him as some type of monster for smoking a bit of dope and watching Apocalypse Now.

If you think getting popped for roids at 39 and coming off a major injury while having always testing clean prior diminishes his career, you are a damn fool.
