UFC 159 was an event where “Murphy’s Law” seemed to apply to everything that happened that night in April. It appears it did not stop in April though, as Pat Healy has tested positive for marijuana. Multiple sources, including Healy himself, confirmed the rumor earlier this evening.
Healy earned $130K in bonuses for his UFC 159 victory over Jim Miller, money he will now have to forfeit after the positive test. The New Jersey Athletic Control Board has also overturned the bout to a “no contest,” erasing what was the biggest win of Healy’s career.
Healy has taken full responsibility for the failed test, and will receive a fine and suspension from the NJACB in the coming days.
