As recently reported by MMAConvert.com, Pat Healy failed his post-fight drug test due to marijuana metabolites. Â On top of earning a 3-month suspension, Healy will now also have to cede his 2 “Of The Night” bonuses for Fight of the Night and Submission of the Night. Â One man’s loss is another’s gain. The runner-up for Submission of the Night at UFC 159 was Bryan Caraway, also the man responsible for getting an additional $15,000 thrown on top of the originally stated $50,000 bonuses. Healy’s opponent in the now overturned No Contest, Jim Miller will keep his $65,000 bonus for “Fight of the Night”.
Dana White voiced his opinion on Twitter:
@_royy it’s known up front that checks are held until everyone passes the drug test. Brian Caraway get the SON now. Healy did himself dirty.
