Log in to Reply Flawn Scorpion May 19, 2013 This guy is a girl hitting douche arse! Poor Meeshaw Tate Log in to Reply PowerTele May 19, 2013 This is terrible. Kick a dude while he is down. Log in to Reply MMAgiantsilva May 19, 2013 I agree he is a douche but he seemed sincere in this interview. I am sure he is happy to get the money regardless who it is taken from. At least he is not giving a speech on irresponsibility. Log in to Reply greengiant May 19, 2013 He realized he offended a lot of people and is trying to fake his way out of it by playing the nice respectful guy. I can see right through it. Log in to Reply Pangea12 May 20, 2013 Something fortunate happened to him and that souls only be a blessing…..but…… If I knew Healy and I got that money I would split it 50/50. Log in to Reply tesla Coil May 20, 2013 What’s wrong with his answer? It’s not like he wrote himself the check. Healy was an idiot and paid for it. When you turn your W to a N/C, you essentially threw away your fight. Hw definitely didn’t win and that’s why he didn’t get paid. Listen, he signed a contract like a grown man, and I’m assuming he knows how to read and he KNEW he was breaking the rules. Fighters are hurt all throughout training and always have residual pain, if they know enough not to take any painkillers before the fight, (yes, they can’t even take TYLENOL), you got to be some kind of tool-bag to think smoking weed is legal. Sucks for Pat, but he knows he cheated and if he’s not complaining (and he’s not) why should anyone else complain for him. You get paid for results. A NC, invalidates the fight, removes the win (no win bonus), invalidates the submission (read above, No WIN), essentially erases the fight (i.e. no FIGHT OF THE NIGHT). Shouldn’t get paid for something that doesn’t count. Log in to Reply ^^^^ May 20, 2013 I hate Caraway too, but I would’ve taken the money as well. It’s $65k and if your not a top fighter then your making the lousy bottom pay and that is a lot of money. Pat is an idiot, whether you think weed is a PED or not, it’s against the rules so stop doing it. There is a simple solution to marijuana and that is allow a minimum THC level like how they allow 6:1 for TRT. Log in to Reply ruddo293 May 20, 2013 Let’s think about it… Pat knows the rules so that is that. He has to accept responsiblity for his actions. I guess he would be a stand up guy if he refused to accept the money. Let me see if anyone would say no to a 65k check… I am willing to bet no one would turn that type of money down. Log in to Reply DaMilkman May 20, 2013 if Caraway’s a stand up guy he’ll give at least half of it back 2 Healy.. especially considering he knows him personally. Log in to Reply Chicago May 20, 2013 Seems like Ronda was right. Log in to Reply failsonnen May 20, 2013 Brian “I don’t Caraway” carried away the other guy’s money Log in to Reply Iron_Cobra May 20, 2013 I still don’t understand why marijuana is a banned substance? It’s not performance enhancing at all? Is cocaine illegal too? Log in to Reply J May 20, 2013 Why is Tate with this douche she is hot as hell and could get a real man not a half pint like this I bet she does all the lifting in the bedroom depart he could not lift her leg lololol Log in to Reply Joe Dog May 20, 2013 It’s about rules and the consequences of breaking them. Healy effed up and Caraway collects the crackers. It has nothing to do with friendship. Anyone who says they would give half of the money to Healy is blowing smoke. It would never happen. By the way, Caraway lives in Washington state where smoking weed is legal. Log in to Reply maynard May 20, 2013 I dont even need confirmation of what MIchelle said to believe it. I see this shit all the time in the gym. People who smoke are villanized…all by people regularally take PEDs. Personally the mma community’s reaction has surprised me in a good way. In my sect of the mma world we smokers are a minority, and the same people talking sh*t are same people gaining 20lbs in 2 weeks once every 3 or 4 months. Log in to Reply Lodovik May 20, 2013 I don’t get it, he didn’t take anyone’s money, it’s the UFC that gave him the bonus. What the hell does he nave to do with Pat Healy’s fight? Why are they even asking him about it? He was just another guy on the same fight car, who happened to win by submission… Log in to Reply Don May 20, 2013 Lets be real, who the hell is gonna turn down $65K? Especially when that’s probably more than he makes in a year. Log in to Reply Mofo May 20, 2013 I hear a lot of common sense here for the most part. Smoking weed isn’t a big deal to me personally, but bottom line if your job requires you not to do…..you don’t do it! I would be fired from my job just like anybody here making comments (for the most part) would be too, even if my friend was gonna have the chance to earn $155.000 I would straighten his ass up & tell him don’t **** up! That’s way to much money to throw away over a lil bud! Log in to Reply wcoastassassin May 21, 2013 So the UFC gave him $65,000, all of you would have taken it. Hypocrites. Log in to Reply Schtuppin' Hawking The F*ing Genius May 21, 2013 If he would have saved da smoke for his post fight celebration, he could’ve got reeeaaaallllll high, got caught be the cops with his glove box full of dooop, laughed all the way to the jail house, got tried, convicted and fined….and it might have cost him 20G…and a little public apology. Log in to Reply Facefrack May 21, 2013 There was a lot of good sense in this thread. I thought Caraway presented himself well, even though I still think its silly to have a rule against smoking pot… ^^^^’s idea about making a rule against having certain concentration of THC in your blood/urine/whatever was interesting. I’m still gonna think of it as a stepping stone on the way to complete legality. Log in to Reply drunkentigah May 21, 2013 I think the issue has to do more than just the money. Its about the athletic commission and their lopsided regulations and criteria for what is considered performance enhancers. Pat Healy lost $135k for having THC in his system while TRT’ers like Sonnen, Henderson and Belfort are getting title shots. The federal ban on marijuana is archaic and substantiated by lies and bias studies and shouldn’t be illegal at all. It’s one thing to say that Healy broke a rule but it’s another if the rule is garbage to begin with. Also Caraway is a d-bagel b/c he lobbied on twitter for the bonus after hearing that Healy was penalized. Who freaking does that? Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick May 21, 2013 I don’t get all the hate.Just because Ronda thinks he’s a douche it doesn’t make him a douche.She got insulted he said he would break her arm and knock her out because SHE CHALLENGED HIM TO A FIGHT.Then she got insulted and played the “I’m a girl” card,and you don’t speak to women that way.Well women who go around saying she would beat your ass doesn’t deserve to be spoken to like a lady.
