Nate Diaz says Bryan Caraway is 'the biggest fag in the world' for taking Pat Healy's submission bonus

Nate Diaz is backing up an “innocent” Pat Healy after the former Strikeforce lightweight contender saw his hard-earned UFC 159 “Fight Night” bonuses go out the window following a positive test for marijuana. But did he also take a verbal jab at Bryan Caraway?

Did we learn nothing from "Meathead's" mistakes?

Nate Diaz took to his official Twitter account today (May 16, 2013) to show his support for Pat Healy, who saw his $130,000 in "Fight Night" bonus go up in smoke, literally, after he tested positive for marijuana in his UFC 159 post fight drug test.

The younger of the Diaz brothers also fired a derogatory gay slur toward what appears to be the direction of Bryan Caraway who -- through no fault of his own -- was the recipient of "Bam Bam's" $65,000 "Submission of the Night" award.

He also poked fun of the "sorry little bitch" right here.

Caraway submitted Johnny Bedford in undercard action in Newark, New Jersey, but came in second place to Healy's third round tapout of Jim Miller. Pat's win, which would have been his seventh straight, has now been ruled a "no contest."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) officials have yet to comment on Nate's remarks, however, if history has shown us anything, the Las Vegas-based mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion has made it clear they are no longer pulling punches (pun intended) when it comes to fighter conduct.

Heavyweight contender Matt Mitrione was recently suspended by the promotion for verbally assaulting transgender fighter Fallon Fox, labeling her a "sick, sociopathic disgusting freak" who likes to beat up women.

"Meathead" has since gotten back in the good graces of the higher ups at ZUFFA, as he was booked to swing leather against Brendan Schaub at UFC on FOX 8 in Seattle, Washington on July 27, 2013; just two weeks after his verbal meltdown.

Anyone not expect UFC to lay the law down on Nate?
