Less than 48 hours hours ago, after much griping, it appeared that Nick Diaz would indeed receive his rematch with Carlos Condit. Now it's unclear when, or if, Diaz will ever fight in the UFC again.

The polarizing Stockonian tested positive for "marijuana metabolites" in the aftermath of UFC 143, according to Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer. Given that this is Diaz's second offense, a lengthy suspension is likely forthcoming.

It seems strangely fitting that after five days of fervent debate, the positive test puts the Condit-Diaz controversy to bed in the most Diaz-like way imaginable. As the UFC and Condit were busy plotting their next move, a slew of Diaz's colleagues sounded off on the announcement.
