Bryan Caraway wins 'Submission of the Night' after Pat Healy forfeits UFC 159 fight night bonuses

Pat Healy loses his "Submission of the Night" bonus after failing his UFC 159 drug test, which means Bryan Caraway becomes $65,000 richer for choking out "Brutal" Johnny Bedford.


Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight contender Pat Healy, who won "Submission of the Night" by choking out Jim Miller last month at UFC 159, has been forced to forfeit his fight night bonus after failing his post-fight drug test (details here).

One man's puff is another man's gain.

Dirty indeed, considering Healy also picked up "Fight of the Night" for his war against Miller.

That's $130,000 that just went up in smoke.

Healy's win over Miller was also changed to a "no contest" and "Bam Bam" has been suspended 90 days for his "poor life choice" of smoking marijuana leading up to the fight, which took place at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., back on April 27, 2013.

Rules are rules.

Caraway, meanwhile, is now $65,000 richer for strangling "Brutal" Johnny Bedford in the third round of their bantamweight bash, which took place on the night's preliminary card, but was televised live on FX channel. "Kid Lightning" had the only other tapout on the card.
