Former Strikeforce champion and UFC star Nick Diaz didn't pull any punches when he made a video response to the Nevada Athletic Commission's decision to suspend him for 5 years following a failed drug test at UFC 183. ESPN's Brett Okamoto caught up with Diaz and tweeted out a video in which the volatile welterweight went off, claiming to be "the only fighter who never used steroids" and accusing "every fighter in the UFC" of having used the powerful performance enhancing drugs in the past.

Diaz has failed multiple drug tests for marijuana in the past, often claiming a medical exemption because he has a prescription for the banned substance in California.
His opponent at UFC 183, former UFC champ Anderson Silva, received a one year suspension from the NAC in August for testing positive for Drostanolone metabolites and Androsterone following the bout.
