BREAKING: Nate Diaz Says He’s Out of UFC Fight Night Over ‘False’ Steroid Allegations (TWEET)
Nate Diaz was expected to face Jorge Masvidal on November 2nd at UFC 244, but that won’t be happening now after he took to Twitter and informed everybody he failed a drug test.
The MMA star denied the allegations in a rant on Twitter
I’m not gonna make it out to NYC for fight week next week because they say I might have tested with elevated levels that they say might be from some tainted supplements. I call false on that because I only take Whole Foods or natural food supplements. I don’t even eat meat. So until UFC, USADA or whoever is FUCKING with me fixes it, I won’t be competing.
“I’m not gonna play their game and try and hide it or keep it quiet, as they suggested. I’m not going to have my name tainted as a cheater like these other motherfuckers who keep quiet until after the fight just so they can get paid. Fucking cheaters.
“I don’t give a fuck about some money over my dignity and my legacy. I’m not playing along with this bullshit. I’m not staying quiet and figuring it out after the fight. That’s cheating. So fight game I’ll see you when I see you.
“Sincerely, the realest baddest motherfucker in the game.”
UFC 244 is set to take place next week, but it looks like they were already prepared to go forward just in case something happened.
Diaz has never failed a drug test in the past but is a frequent user of CBD.
The 34-year-old recently had his first bout since facing Conor McGregor in 2016, a match that he won against Anthony Pettis by decision at UFC 241 in August.
