The long records of unforeseen, flighty and regularly stunning Nate Diaz advancements hit another level Thursday when Diaz declared they was out of their UFC 244-featuring battle with Jorge Masvidal on Nov. 2 in New York.
Diaz took to web based life to uncover that they had, clearly, tried positive for some sort of execution improving medication. They at that point eagerly denied the charge and theorized that the test was a set-up by some element — The United States Anti-Doping Association? The UFC?
They at that point made it even a stride further by proposing somebody in power guided their to shroud the outcomes until after the battle, the manner in which different warriors do it, opening a whole unique embarrassment assuming genuine.
Indeed, even by Diaz models this was insane.
“I’m not gonna make it out to NYC for fight week next week because they say I tested with elevated levels that they say might be from some tainted supplements,” Diaz wrote in a tweet. “I call false on that [because] I only take Whole Food or natural food supplements. I don’t even eat meat.”
“So until [the] UFC, USADA or whoever is [expletive] with me fixes it, I won’t be competing,” Diaz finished up.
Diaz is a faithful vegetarian who prepares tirelessly, including as a long distance runner. They has since quite a while ago got out different warriors for being on PEDs and is regarded to the point that Masvidal took to Twitter to state he also didn’t trust Diaz failed any tests and that they’d battle him regardless of what USADA guaranteed.
“You are one of the cleanest mofo’s,” Masvidal wrote. “I know your name is clean.”
In the interim, Diaz offered no clarification or insights concerning why they thinks somebody is evidently making up positive medication tests about him.
Neither Diaz nor their supervisory crew reacted quickly to writings looking for further remark. The UFC presently can’t seem to own any expression with the circumstance progressing, and the battle hasn’t formally been dropped.
USADA has on occasion been involved in discussion and analysis from competitors yet never in intentionally polluting tests to bring them down. Similarly, the UFC has millions to lose by having Diaz, one of its most bankable stars, hauling out of a Madison Square Garden pay-per-see without prior warning. The advancement has been inconsistent in the past with Diaz, yet that isn’t remarkable in the battle game.
The UFC absolutely didn’t require UFC 244 self-destructing. It is a stacked card however the enormous draw was Diaz-Masvidal battling for the Diaz-enlivened “Baddest Mother[expletive]” belt. From that point forward, Diaz was looking at a potential set of three battle against Conor McGregor which may crush existing blended hand to hand fighting compensation per-see numbers.
And keeping in mind that warriors state a great deal of things, Diaz is known to back his discussion up. The 34-year-old as of late removed three entire years from the Octagon in the prime of his profession since they didn’t think the UFC was offering their appropriate battles. They has expressed they couldn’t care less about battling for belts and simply needs extraordinary challenge that they regards — it’s the reason they asked explicitly to battle Masvidal.
There is a great deal of genuine adherent to their.
The Stockton, California, local notes that they has just gotten more cash-flow than they at any point thought conceivable and will do nothing that they doesn’t have confidence in. They appears to be more than substance riding their bicycle, maintaining a CBD business and a rec center with their more established sibling Nick, and making the most of their energy for smoking weed.
“I’m not going to play their game and try to hide it or keep it quiet, as they suggested,” Diaz wrote, not making it clear who, exactly, “they” are. “I’m not gonna have my name tainted as a cheater like these other mother[expletives] who keep quiet until after the fight just so they can get paid. [Expletive] cheaters.”
“I don’t give a [expletive] about some money over my dignity and my legacy,” Diaz said. “I’m not playing along with this [expletive]. I’m not staying quiet and figuring it out after the fight. That’s cheating.”
