If Pat Healy knew what smoking a little weed at his friend's birthday party was going to cause, he never would have done it.
"I wish I could go back in time and slap myself," Healy said. "It was a dumb thing to do."
On Monday's edition of The MMA Hour, Healy broke his silence on his recent suspension for marijuana use, which kicked off a storm of controversy.
Calling in from a vacation in Hawaii, Healy said he smoked marijuana a few weeks out from his UFC 159 fight against Jim Miller and never bothered to think it would be a big deal.
"It was about three and a half, four weeks out," Healy said. "I was at a friend's birthday party, just hanging out. To be honest I didn't even think it would be an issue, you know? It was a huge mistake and I just didn't even think."
The Team Quest fighter had a breakthrough performance at UFC 159, as he earned Fight of the Night and Submission of the Night bonuses totaling $130,000 after defeating Miller in Newark. When the New Jersey Athletic Control Board post-fight drug tests showed marijuana in his system, though, Miller's win was overturned to a no-contest and he was stripped of his bonuses.
Healy broke the news of the test failure and the reason for it on his own, looking to keep bad information from getting out.
