Kazuhiro Nakamura tested positive for marijuana in the aftermath of his unanimous decision loss to Ryoto Machida at UFC 76: “Knockout” over the weekend, according to the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC).
Perhaps that explains all the bizarre pre-fight antics.
Yes, because smoking weed really makes you do crazy things. I saw a movie once where one puff of the deadly ‘marihuana cigarette’ caused a teenager to sink into a psychosis from which there was no end! Truth of the matter is pot doesn’t do anything but make you sound like a burnt out moron. Nakamura was bizarre because Nakamura has always been bizarre. Out in Japan-land, that’s why they book you … the whole skill at fighting thing is secondary.
It’s interesting to note that Nakamura was only suspended for three months, which considering the UFC’s scheduling isn’t a suspension at all. Why does it seem like all the fighters we like get the book thrown at them but boring fighters get flimsy slaps on the wrist? I wish things worked like they do in Hollywood – the rich and famous get away with driving high on the wrong side of the freeway while anyone who doesn’t have an IMDB.com profile picture gets thrown in jail to rot.
