Nick Diaz and Hector Lombard will soon have their day in front of the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) to explain why they recently failed their respective drug tests.
According to Shaheen Al-Shatti, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) standouts will be summoned to Las Vegas, Nevada, on March 23, 2015.
Hearings for Hector Lombard and Nick Diaz are slated for the 03/23 meeting of the Nevada Athletic Commission. 1 p.m. PT.— Shaheen Al-Shatti (@shaunalshatti) March 18, 2015
Diaz failed his UFC 183 post-fight drug test for marijuana after coming up short on the judges' scorecards in his five-round battle (video highlights) against former middleweight champion Anderson Silva.
Speaking of "The Spider," he was also caught peeing dirty.
As for Lombard, he was popped for steroids shortly after his win over Josh Burkman at UFC 182 on Jan. 3, 2015, further adding to the belief that the former Bellator MMA champion had long been on performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs).
As a result of these and other failed drug tests, UFC was forced to ramp up its war on drugs by implementing additional stringent testing moving forward (details).
As usual, MMAmania.com will have live updates of all the upcoming proceedings.
