Nick Diaz passes drug test following Strikeforce win on April 11

Nick Diaz defeated Frank Shamrock via technical knockout at Strikeforce: "Shamrock vs. Diaz" from the HP Pavilion on Saturday, April 11 in San Jose, California.

And now the California State Athletic Commission Assistant Executive Officer Bill Douglas has confirmed that he did it without the assistance of marijuana or any type of performance enhancing drugs, according to MMAWeekly.

Here's a snip:

"Diaz was fine. The test went through a full battery which [also] checks for cleansing agents."

Diaz tested positive for marijuana after his surprising and sensational win over PRIDE FC 160-pound champion Takanori Gomi at PRIDE 33 back on February 24, 2007.

That win was quickly overturned by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) and Diaz was suspended for six months. Because of that suspension, Diaz was unable to secure a corner’s license for his brother Nate's fight against Manny Gamburyan at The Ultimate Fighter Finale 5.

Prior to the Shamrock fight, Diaz told the LA Times he was able to beat drug tests with the help of herbal cleansers and ten gallons of water per day. Were those claims just vintage Diaz? Or does the man with the medical marijuana card really know how to cheat the system?
