Breaking: Nate Diaz suspended over Twitter remark (updated)
Thursday, 16 May 2013 15:44
Today's Twitter stupidity award goes to Nate Diaz. While his defending of Pat Healy is a popular viewpoint and I think many, if not most, feel sorry for Healy, the fact Bryan Caraway was given a $65,000 bonus for best submission when it was taken from Healy does not make Caraway a villain.
Diaz wrote: "I feel bad for Pat Healy that they took an innocent man's money and I think the guy who took the money is the biggest f-g in the world."
Dana White responded via text and said Diaz would either be fined, suspended or cut. "One or two of those three will happen," he said. White is in Germany right now, returns tomorrow and said the punishment would be decided when he gets back.
10 PM EST Update
The UFC announced that Diaz has been suspended indefinitely:
"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."
