UFC lightweight Pat Healy (30-16 MMA, 1-0 UFC) today issued a statement to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) in which he apologized for testing positive for marijuana following an upset win over Jim Miller (22-5 MMA, 11-4 UFC) at UFC 159.

The UFC declined to comment on the matter, and the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board, which oversaw the event, does not release the names of those that test positive for banned substances following an event. But a Healy representative told MMAjunkie.com that the fighter was suspended for 90 days by the commission and his win will be overturned to a no contest.

In his statement, Healy took fully responsibility for the positive test.

Fuck man, what are these guys thinking? If you have a problem go to rehab, If you don't, lay off it for a month, it's really straight forward here.

I'm glad marijuana isn't legal in MMA. I won't get into the reasons, though. Don't want to start a debate. But what it comes down to is what Davies said, lay off the stuff when you know you have a fight coming up. If you can't, something needs to be done.

Who gives a fuck if he had weed (or was it metabolites?) in his system? Give him a third bonus I say. Bring back Matt Riddle while we are at it.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: DOES WEED SLOW YOUR REACTION TIME AND MAKE YOU STUPID, OR IS IT A PERFORMANCE ENHANCING DRUG? I'm fucking tired of society playing both sides of the fucking fence

Miller fanboys better not get too excited. He's clearly on the decline.
