Nick Diaz UFC 129La Régie des alcools des courses et des jeux (RACJ), the athletic commission in Quebec, on Thursday confirmed that it had six fighters drug tested at UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz on March 16 in Montreal. The RACJ added that all six tests produced clean results, but would not say who any of the tested fighters were.

Jonathan Tweedale, a representative of Nick Diaz’s camp, however, revealed to MMAWeekly.com that Diaz was one of the six.

Not only did Tweedale confirm that Diaz was tested and produced negative results, but added that Diaz’s camp is requesting further information from the Quebec commission.

Mr. Diaz’s sample tested negative. We have now requested from the Quebec Commission (the Regie):

1) A copy of the Regie’s request to the laboratory specifying which substances the lab was asked to test the sample for (if any), and

2) A copy of any documents received from the lab conducting the drug testing showing the precise test results for Mr. Diaz for all substances the sample was actually tested for.

Tweedale would not elaborate on why they requested further information from the commission, but it should be noted that Diaz’s camp has already challenged the RACJ over its handling of the UFC 158 weigh-ins.

The Diaz camp stated that the RACJ relaxed its own rules for the main event, in particular, because Georges St-Pierre was involved.

“The Quebec Commission deliberately relaxed the rule (regarding a bout’s contracted weight) in this case and, by its own admission, allowed their home-town fighter to ‘make weight’ even if he weighed more than the contracted weight,” Tweedale noted in an earlier statement to MMAWeekly.com regarding the controversial weigh-in situation.

St-Pierre won the five-round championship fight by unanimous decision.

Diaz noted after the bout’s conclusion that he intended to retire if he was not granted a rematch with St-Pierre or a fight with UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. Tweedale stated that Diaz “still feels the same way” in regards to his retirement.
