    UFC 159's Bryan Caraway ecstatic with new bonus, blasts marijuana usage in MMA | News

    "All I've got to say is that's some expensive weed," he said. "I like Healy a lot. I came up through the fighting ranks with him. We used to train together at Team Quest. I love the guy. But I have absolutely zero remorse or guilt.

    "I hate weed. I cannot stand it. I've never tried it. I've never smoked a drug in my life. So I have absolutely zero tolerance for people that do it. I don't care if it's legal in some places or not. I think it's absolutely ridiculous. Whether it's legal in real life or not, they tell you to follow the rules. You need to follow the rules."

    Caraway invested and bought a Corvette with his UFC 149 bonus money, but this time around, he said he will save the money for a down payment on a house.

    The 28-year-old hasn't always been favored by MMA fans, who've taken jabs at him and his relationship with girlfriend and fellow UFC fighter Miesha Tate. He was blasted for threatening on Twitter to break the arm of UFC champ (and Tate rival) Ronda Rousey when she said she could beat him up. But as of late, his fortunes seem to be changing.

    The call to fight at UFC 159 came five days before the event when an injury forced Erik Perez to withdraw. Caraway cut in excess of 20 pounds to make the bantamweight limit and said afterward that he will never cut that much again.

    But now, it's clear he made the right choice.

    "It was the best five-day decision I've ever made," Caraway said. "There's going to be haters in this sport, but I know I'm a genuinely good person, and I know that's eventually going to shine through. People are going to start seeing my character and that I'm a tough dude. It does feel good to get recognition. It's welcoming."

    As for when he fights next, Caraway said he's strongly considering surgeries for his shoulder and his knee, but he also wants to stay active.

    "I don't want to get my shoulder surgery because I know it's going to put me out for three, four, five, possibly six months, and that scares me," he said. "I've fought all my UFC fights with my shoulder torn, so we'll see what happens. I want to get back in there and fight soon, but Miesha is going to force me to get my shoulder fixed because she's going to kick my butt, and I don't want that."

    $130,000+ gone all because he wanted to get high. Harsh lesson to learn but if he wants to keep his money he has to play by the rules. Even if you dont agree with the rules you should still play by them unless you are prepared to suffer the consequences.

    why does the ufc do shit like this.. if it was steroids i could understand but it's just weed. the common person can understand that weed does not help you in anyway. it would be like them stripping Ben Henderson for fighting with a toothpick in his mouth because that's cheating..
