As recently reported by MMAConvert.com, Pat Healy failed his post-fight drug test due to marijuana metabolites.  On top of earning a 3-month suspension, Healy will now also have to cede his 2 “Of The Night” bonuses for Fight of the Night and Submission of the Night.  One man’s loss is another’s gain. The runner-up for Submission of the Night at UFC 159 was Bryan Caraway, also the man responsible for getting an additional $15,000 thrown on top of the originally stated $50,000 bonuses. Healy’s opponent in the now overturned No Contest, Jim Miller will keep his $65,000 bonus for “Fight of the Night”.

Dana White voiced his opinion on Twitter:

Caraway took the fight at UFC 159 on 5 days notice.
