The Master Cleanse. – Is Nick Diaz looking for another cleanse "ritual"? – "He was surprised he tested positive," Gracie said. "He does the same ritual every fight for the last five years. He stops it in time and he cleanses his system, works out like crazy, drinks a lot of water and purges his system of it" [Cesar Gracie] via bloodyelbow.com – Is "NickDiaz209" really Nick Diaz's YouTube account? Here's a video of MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani asking Diaz about the account. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33UO_ksPgkY starts @ 09:57 via YouTube [NickDiaz209]

Chael Sonnen's finally got a date with NSAC. According to what Kizer has told ESPN, Sonnen will appear in front of the NSAC on April 27th to re-apply for both his fighter's license and second's license, AKA a cornermen's license. But why the whole commision? "I don't feel comfortable granting his licenses based on his background. I feel the issues surrounding him are important enough for him to go before the full commission. That way, the commission will be able to discuss the issues that arose with respect to his last bout in California, as well as his recent criminal conviction." Sounds to me like Mr.Kizer is going to make an example out of Mr.Sonnen. Sonnen is a highly visible star that brazenly lied to a state commission about his PED use and his dealings with Mr. Kizer and the NSAC. A strong message will have to be sent to other fighters that fighters will be held accountable regardless of their standing with big commission benefactors like Zuffa. Mr. Kizer, this is that opportunity, don't waste it.

NSAC executive director Keith Kizer says the commission will soon revisit its drug-testing policy: The NSAC has been at the head of many rule changes to discourage drug use said Kizer, including switching wins to ‘no contests’ when a fighter tests positive for banned substances. According to Kizer, the last significant meeting it held on drug-testing policies was in September 2008, when it was determined that urine testing was the most effective, accurate method. However, the process of blood testing has been developed since then — including the first positive test for HGH by a British professional rugby player in February this year. Those advancements have fell under the NSAC’s consideration and Kizer said the commission would likely revisit its drug-testing policy as early as next month. "It’s never not been under our consideration, it’s an ongoing thing," Kizer said. "Urine testing is better for testing everything except HGH. Blood testing, until recently, hasn’t been perfected. "We held a public meeting in 2008 where we overlooked a lot of material. Now, it’s 18 months later and we need to revisit it. It could be expanding our urine testing or adding blood testing. Something could happen, hopefully, next month." HT: lasvegassun.com

Dave Meltzer With An Interesting Quote: "True story. A notable head of a major athletic commission talked to a notable head of a major fight company whose athletes were rampantly using steroids and suggested for the good of the company and the sport, they should test everyone themselves one month out. The ones that fail, they should announce that they are injured, because in training, everyone is really injured, get a legit diagnosis of the injury, and pull them out of the fight, that way they don't have guys suspended. Not that this has anything to do with anything this week."

Looks like B.J. Penn was still able to get some changes through in his case against Georges St. Pierre... there is now a rule known as the "B.J. Penn Rule" that will allow the referee to foul fighters for excessive use of a substance that is deemed illegal. "In a meeting held Wednesday in Las Vegas, the NSAC approved language prohibiting the use of foreign substances on a fighter’s body prior to or during a fight that "could result in an unfair advantage. Dubbed by a commission official as the "B.J. Penn Rule," the use of foreign substances will now be added to a list of "fouls" in the Nevada Administrative Code that address tactics illegal to fighters, such as eye gouging, small joint manipulation, or biting."
