I don't know how so many people who've never met Nick can talk about him being a douchebag or a dick either. He's probably one of the nicest MMA fighters I've ever met and will talk to you for hours about MMA, training, jiu jitsu, nutrition, whatever. If you came up to him talking ****, yeah you'll probably get 5 across the eye but if you show respect he'll talk to you about anything really. Nate's the same way. Also, during your conversation with Nick or Nate you should expect to be asked to train at Cesar's at least 10 times...

smoking weed certainly isnt improving the kid's performance but he's still a bonehead for smoking the stuff when he's training
with his level of physical fitness he wouldnt likely keep thc stored for long. he probably smokes through camp
a period of a few weeks max. fat people store that **** away, but somebody like diaz will detox quickly and piss that **** out.

Study: Pot smokers twice as likely to have car accidents
By Elizabeth Cunningham Perkins
Feb 11, 2012
A new study at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada has provided evidence that drivers who smoke pot even hours before operating a motor vehicle are twice as likely to cause crashes as drivers not under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
BBC News reported the study's findings published in the British Medical Journal confirming the link between cannabis use up to three hours before driving and increased risk of causing car collisions, probably due to impairment of motor and brain functions needed to operate a vehicle safely, the researchers speculated.
The researchers reviewed and analyzed nine previous studies of 49,411 people from many locations around the world who had been involved in crashes on public roads between one or more cars, sports utility vehicles, vans, trucks, buses and motorcycles, focusing upon collisions related to cannabis use in which at least one person was injured or killed, and they found the risk of causing a serious or fatal accident almost doubled for drivers who had consumed cannabis within three hours of getting behind the wheel, according to study lead-author Mark Asbridge and Dalhousie University's department of community health and epidemiology.
This study is the first to separate the effects on driving of alcohol and other substances from the effects of cannabis, though cannabis is the most popular illicit substance worldwide, and is increasingly being consumed while rates of driving under the influence rise globally, the researchers claimed.
The authors concluded consuming cannabis impairs motor tasks necessary for safe driving, and suggested future studies review and assess minor accidents in the wider driving population for increased risk after cannabis use.
