    According to MMA Junkie, Price saw his temporary suspension for having carboxy THC in his system extended after testing positive for a prohibited cannabinoid following his fight against Donald Cerrone. Price fought to a draw in the fight. The Nevada State Athletic Commission has now placed Price under a temporary suspension and the two sides are expected to settle the matter in December.

    In addition to Price, UFC lightweight Kevin Croom was suspended for four-and-a-half months after testing positive for marijuana prior to his upset submission win over Roosevelt Roberts. Croom, who won a $50,000 bonus for “Performance of the Night,” was also fined $1,800 and subject to court fines. His win was overturned to a No Contest.

    Additionally, Contender Series fighter Jose Flores was also suspended for four-and-half months. Flores was submitted by Jordan Leavitt on Dana White’s Contender Series. He was also fined $750. As well, Contender Series alum Chad Johnson was suspended nine months after testing positive for a banned amphetamine. Johnson suffered a TKO loss to Josh Parisian during this summer’s edition of the Contender Series.

    Nevada has been cracking down on athletes testing positive for marijuana. In recent months, numerous other UFC fighters including flyweight Tim Elliott and light heavyweight Jamahal Hill were fined and suspended for marijuana use.

    Niko doing his best to become a Diaz brother. The slurring after his last fight was text book Diaz, now this? The next logical step is for him to plead the fifth until he gets a lifetime ban.

    War price, the third Diaz brother!

    Makes me think that even if Cowboy lost the fight with him (which really is a loss without the point deduction), Cowboy still avoids a 5 fight losing streak as it will be ruled as a NC. Interesting.

    Dana was sincerely surprised enough so that he commented "For them to fail with the new thresholds is... wow"

    I'm paraphrasing from his post DWCS presser

    Yessir. They must've been in on every rotation lol.
    From 2013:
    The previous threshold for Nevada had been 50 ng/mL, but the commission increased its threshold to 150 ng/mL, matching WADA. That’s a 300-percent increase in the threshold to determine a positive test result for marijuana metabolites.

    Well marijuana is bad we all know that, he should just stick with legal stuff like alcohol and be drunk every day, no one would suspend him because of that.

    Price is such a waste of talent. If he really took his career seriously, he'd put down the pots

    For regular users this could be weeks depending on individual body chemistry and preferred method of use.
