Pat Healy Admits Marijuana Use Was A ‘Dumb’ Mistake

Pat Healy didn’t attack Bryan Caraway like Nate Diaz did.

Instead, Healy appeared on The MMA Hour earlier this week and admitted that his decision to smoke marijuana a few weeks out from a planned fight with Jim Miller was a bad idea.

“It was about three and a half or four weeks out. It was at a friend’s birthday party, just hanging out. To be honest, I didn’t even think it would be an issue. It was a huge mistake and I wish I could go back in time and slap myself because it was just a dumb thing to do.”

Healy was fined and suspended, including losing his $160,000 in bonus money for defeating Miller. While disappointed, “Bam Bam” understands why he was dealt the blows.

“I think it was a bummer for me, but I don’t think it was not fair because those are the rules. That’s how they handle it and that’s how they’ve always handled it when it has happened in the past. That’s the way they do things.”
