Nate Diaz Smokes Joint In Front Of USADA Agent While Getting Tested For PEDs

Nate Diaz got a visit from USADA before his upcoming September 10th fight against Khamzat Chimaev and he welcomed the USADA agent with some weed.

During an Instagram live stream, Diaz filmed himself smoking a joint in front of the USADA agent, who really didn’t want to be seen on camera.

Back in 2021 the UFC and USADA relaxed their marijuana rules and allowed fighters to smoke during training camp but not on fight night

The UFC’s anti-doping policy will no longer punish athletes for positive tests for carboxy-THC, the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis.

UFC and U.S. Anti-Doping Agency officials on Thursday announced significant modifications “in the handling of cannabis and its naturally occurring cannabinoid compounds.”

In short, positive tests for carboxy-THC, regardless of levels, will no longer be considered violations to the policy “unless additional evidence exists that an athlete used it intentionally for performance-enhancing purposes.”

Nate’s brother Nick, famously fought against the strict marijuana regulations when he was heavily suspended and fined for testing positive for marijuana in 2015.
