UFC President Dana White was asked today at the UFC 158 pre fight press conference about what would happen if Nick Diaz were to test positive again following his upcoming bout against Georges St. Pierre and pulled no punches regarding Diaz or any fighter for that matter:
"Listen, I'm not his father. I mean, it would be crazy (if he tested positive again) but, it's like when I talk to the media and stuff sometimes they're like, â€˜What are you going to do about steroids? Or what are you going to do about this, what are you going to do about that?' I got 475 guys under contract that live all over the world, I'm not your father. We're regulated by the government, the government comes in and regulates us. If you do steroids, if you smoke weed, if you do any other banned substances you're going to get caught, you're going to get fined and you're going to lose the ability to make a living for a year. I mean, I don't know what else to say."
White went on to tell the media that if Diaz were to beat St. Pierre and become champion only to follow it up with a positive drug test, he would want to "jump off a bridge."
