Nick Diaz vs. Jay Heiron May Be Off
The Nick Diaz vs. Jay Heiron welterweight title bout may be off for the August 15th Strikeforce event. Nick Diaz was to take a drug test yesterday in San Diego last night, and Caesar Gracie stated Wednesday that Diaz would appear for the test. Neither Caesar Gracie nor Nick Diaz showed for the test. Representatives for Diaz claimed that he was busy training, but promised to show up for the test on Monday.
The problem is that the CSAC believes the test would have had to be taken last night to get the results back in time, and while the agreed to the Monday test, but feel that there is a good chance that the results of the test will not be back in time to clear Diaz for the show.
