Pat Healy’s loss is Bryan Caraway’s gain

Pat Healy just lost $135,000 worth of bonus money over a failed drug test for weed. His half of the Fight of the Night money goes back into the UFC’s pocket, but Submission of the Night now goes to everyone’s favorite fighter – Mr Miesha Tate himself, Bryan Caraway.

Caraway, who can never seem to let a moment in the spotlight pass without coming off like a bit of a dickbag, had this to say about the situation:

“All I’ve got to say is that’s some expensive weed,” he said. “I like Healy a lot. I came up through the fighting ranks with him. We used to train together at Team Quest. I love the guy. But I have absolutely zero remorse or guilt.

“I hate weed. I cannot stand it. I’ve never tried it. I’ve never smoked a drug in my life. So I have absolutely zero tolerance for people that do it. I don’t care if it’s legal in some places or not. I think it’s absolutely ridiculous. Whether it’s legal in real life or not, they tell you to follow the rules. You need to follow the rules.”

Yep, because Bryan isn’t into it he is totally cool with the draconian rules and punishments surrounding marijuana. Zero tolerance!

Hey, no one is asking Caraway to feel guilty about getting Healy’s bonus money. But if you see a guy you ‘like a lot’ get screwed over and say it’s okay by you because weed is ridiculous, then I dunno what to say. You’d think a guy who recently petitioned the UFC for his win money after getting screwed over by the judges would understand that sometimes rules are unjust. You’d think he’d be more sympathetic to another fighter who just had their win zapped out of existence. But nope, not Bryan Caraway. At least not when he makes 65k out of it.

    Caraway definitely wears the v@gina in their relationship. Always crying like he’s on his period.

    You can just coast, Caraway!
    Just coast.

    I’m opposed to any situation where Bryan Caraway receives anything other than an ass kicking.

    Just when you thought you couldn’t like Caraway any less.

    Ryan,

    He may be unlikeable but his point is that it’s a rule & Healy fuct himself by flouting it. Plus Jim Miller.

    Having said that, Bones’ Law suggests that Caraway will probably get busted for owning several grow ops within the next few weeks.

    a) Caraway didn’t get screwed by judges against Mizugaki. I thought he clearly lost, so did a great number of people.

    b) Healy didn’t get screwed either. He broke a rule (admittedly a stupid one) and he’s feeling the consequences.

    When you pee into the wind, don’t complain about the stink. When you “just coast”, don’t complain about losing a fight. When you smoke weed before a drug test, don’t complain about getting penalized. Actions have consequences.

    To be fair, Healy isn’t really complaining. He’s taking it like a man which, given his ultra-manly beardedness, shouldn’t be that much of a surprise.
