Diego Sanchez Test Positive For Marijuana

UFC Fight Night 7
According to the Orange County Register, Diego Sanchez tested positive for marijuana after the Joe Riggs fight. This is surprising to me because normally things like this get out. Diego already paid the fine and served a three months suspension.

“UFC welterweight contender Diego Sanchez tested positive for marijuana after his first-round KO over Joe Riggs on Dec.13 at Miramar Marine Corps Air Station. Armando Garcia, the executive officer of the California State Athletic Commission, said Sanchez paid a $500 fine and served a three-month suspension, so he has been cleared to fight Josh Koscheck at UFC 69 on April7 in Houston”

    What's up UFC? One guy (Diego), $500.00 fine & 3 month suspension, & Diaz you fine $3,000. & give him 6 months. I realize Diego is (was) your little golden boy, but let's be fair here. At least Diaz doesn't get in the ring & act all "god fearing & innocent". What you see is what you get with Diaz, & I for one appreciate that. Infact I didn't even hear about Diego till all the hype about Diaz came out. What happens to Diegos win? You took Diaz's win against Gomi! Let's play fair boys!!!
