Morning Report: Nick Diaz's Troubles, Dan Henderson Considers Fight at Heavyweight

Feb 10, 2012 - In retrospect, I guess we shouldn't be that surprised that Nick Diaz outkicked his coverage and tested positive for weed during a UFC 143 drug screening. After all, this is the guy that hit a bong in the middle of a Strikeforce conference call.
But still, Hendo might fight at heavyweight if we can find him a good match-up. So it's not all bad.

Nick Diaz tests positive for marijuana. Nick Diaz is facing a lengthy suspension after testing positive for marijuana metabolites for the second time.
Diaz's positive drug test not surprising, but still bizarrely disappointing. Like a father that discovered his son's weed hidden under the dresser drawer, Ben Fowlkes isn't angry at Diaz's failed test, justdisappointed.
Dana White 'beyond disappointed' in Nick Diaz. White was unexpectedly measured in his short public statement.
Dan Henderson won't wait for title shot. Now that Jon Jones is tied-up with Rashad Evans, Hendo wants to fight in April or May. More surprisingly, a move up to heavyweight apparently isn't out of the question.
UFC 143 trending near 400,000 pay-per-view buys. Early estimates have the buyrate for last weekend's UFC 143 show far exceeding expectations.
There's a lot more media (vids, tweets, etc) at the end of the article, which can be seen in its entirety here:
