    So since California saw it fit to NC Diaz for THC in his system, will they NC fighters with Steroids in their system?

    California didn't NC Diaz for THC in his system.

    Nevada did. Different rules in different commissions. California can't overturn fights, Nevada can.

    Atleast that is what i read earlier today when I asked the same question.

    I thought the fight took place in Cali?

    But if high levels of THC in the system can "Change the outcome of the fight"(and let me insert a "give me a fucking break") then how does Steroids(i.e. performance enhancing drugs) /NOT/ change the outcome of a fight?

    Doh!

    Ok.

    Well change that to Nevada then.

    I could have sworn Cali was the state taking the backlash for that decision.

    So yeah, the explanation I'm undertsanding is California can't overturn fights, Nevada can.

    That or they haven't yet. Maybe they will in the future.

    So will Nevada overturn fights where the winner was Juicing?

    Has a winner been caught in Nevada lately? That I don't know. I would assume they would after the Gomi/Diaz fight, it's the same thing according to that ruling. Worse, even.

    Thats what I was curious about.

    I was looking back, when Tim Sylvia was caught after the Gan Mcgee fight he was stripped of the title but he kept the win.

    I think the same for Josh Barnett too. And is Sherk? I think that fight especially (with both fighters testing positive) it should be a NC.

    Diaz's THC count was so high the commission's Dr. said he thought Nick was high for the fight, and it numbed the pain from Gomi's punches. It also didn't help prior to the fight he didn't want to take the test and was told he wouldn't be fighting if he didn't take the test. But the fact they thought he was high during the fight is why they ruled it a no contest.

    I'm assuming the athletic commissioner has never been high.

    If he beat Gomi high, let him fight Fedor sober.

    PRIDE probably paid some official to overturn the results so that Gomi's record isn't tarnished :o
