This is what it means to be (kind of) mainstream, y'all.

The folks at snapped the above photo of the Times Square Ticker in New York announcing the fact that Nick Diaz failed his drug test for his main event fight against Carlos Condit at UFC 143 this past Sat., Feb. 4, 2012, in Las Vegas.

And, as noted by Middle Easy, the ticker ran with no real context. It simply said Diaz tested positive for marijuana. That's it. Nothing about Condit or UFC 143 or the fight itself. Just the message you see above.

That's big timing it.

Unfortunately, it's more bad press for MMA in New York at a time when that's the last thing it needs. Nonetheless, there it is, in all its glory. Or shame. Whatever.
