Nick Diaz, who defeated Frank Shamrock via second-round TKO at Strikeforce’s April 11th event in San Jose, California, has passed the drug test administered by the California State Athletic Commission following the contest.
In the days leading up to the bout, Diaz, who previously tested positive for marijuana in PRIDE following a win over Takanori Gomi, said he could beat the drug test using cleansers.
However, CSAC Assistant Executive Director Bill Douglas tell’s MMA Weekly that Diaz passed the test, which tests for recreational drugs such as marijuana as well as performance enhancers, without cleansing agents.
“Diaz was fine,” said Douglas. “The test went through a full battery which checks for cleansing agents.”
Diaz has won five of his last six bouts since his early-2007 victory against Gomi was ruled a no contest following the positive test.
