UFC officials confirmed the suspension with ESPN on Thursday:
We are very disappointed by Nate Diaz’s comments, which are in no way reflective of our organization. Nate is currently suspended pending internal investigation and we will provide further comment once the matter has been decided.”
Healy’s victory over Jim Miller is being changed to a no-contest and he will be suspended for 90 days. Diaz’s is suspended indefinitely, with more information likely to come in the next few days. The Diaz family is no stranger to marijuana-related offenses. Nate’s older brother Nick has been suspended twice in his career for marijuana use.
It’s worth noting that Bryan Caraway was the one who initially campaigned for $65,000 in bonus money before UFC 159, which Dana White agreed to. Caraway submitted Johnny Bedford with a guillotine choke in the third round.
I feel I deserved the SOTN anyways for my sub. And fighting on 5 days notice cutting 23.5 pounds and making weight and winning!
