Ronda rousey and nick diaz dating
"I got into this sport for this exact reason, being stuck in a room with people like that."I wanted to tell them what I think.I wanted to tell each and every one of them they're a bunch of dorks. She’s a great friend.” Diaz’s legal team has indicated they will be taking the matter to court. Ronda Rousey is smokin' mad about marijuana testing in her sport in the wake of the five-year suspension of UFC welterweight Nick Diaz, who tested positive for pot for a third time. Rich Chou has been matchmaking for over a decade, first with BJ Penn’s Rumble on the Rock, then with Elite XC, followed by Strikeforce, and now with Bellator MMA. “(Coker is) always looking to change the game and come up with new ideas. Diaz and the law aren’t exactly a match made in heaven but Bellator Match-Maker Rich Chou looks for the perfect match every time he handcrafts a fight card. This is the NAC’s harshest punishment on a fighter to date, with Rousey adamant that a positive marijuana test should never be an issue in the first place. ” The ban relates to Diaz’s headliner fight with Anderson Silva on 31 January at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena, as a result of which the Brazilian too was suspended for just a year for testing positive for steroids.
The outspoken megastar and UFC’s women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey recently interrupted a reporter’s questions at a media event in Australia to offer unprompted remarks about Nick Diaz’s suspension for five years. In an interview with Steven Marrocco for MMAjunkie, Chou said MMA needs something different, and Scott Coker is the cure. I feel like this is a great situation where you’ve got Scott with the freedom and flexibility to come up with new ideas and (Spike pres) Kevin Kay and the rest of the Spike people and Viacom are willing to support him.” “I think some people are too tied to a system and a structure. Whatever will thrill the fans, whatever will take us to the next level, is an option, and let’s discuss.” “For some people, it’s here’s a pecking order and a ladder system and we follow it and we don’t deviate from it. In an impassioned rant at the UFC 193 press conference in Melbourne Wednesday, Rousey said she was vehemently opposed to testing for marijuana, which she described as "an invasion of privacy" that "is only tested for political reasons." The UFC's reigning superstar also insisted that smoking weed has nothing to do with a fighter's performance in the Octagon. "They say, It's only for your safety to keep you from hurting yourself.’ You know what, then why don’t they test us for all the other things that could possibly hurt us, that we could be under the influence of when we're out there. And you know what, I think we should free Nick Diaz."Turning to UFC boss Dana White, who was standing at her side, Ronda continued:"It's not Dana’s decision either; he had nothing to do with it.Responding to a reporter's question about the hardships she endured early in her MMA career when she was dirt-poor and living out of her car, Rousey flipped the question to Diaz's pot-related suspension like the judo master that she is. "There’s NO reason that we should be tested for weed. Nick is a really close and dear friend of mine so of course I’m going to defend him. "If one person tests for steroids, that could actually hurt a person, and the other person smokes a plant that makes him happy, and he gets suspended for five years! I’m sure if he’d had the choice he would have given him a lot less.For example, Ronda’s last boyfriend was “Bob 6.” And yes, she calls them that to their faces.When Nick Diaz starts talking, he starts letting out all of the family secrets, apparently.
