The Diaz Brothers have never been known to keep quiet when they didn’t appreciate something, so it should come as no surprise that little brother Nate is in trouble with the UFC boss after a derogatory comment he wrote on Twitter. Diaz, a very avid marijuana smoker, did not appreciate the UFC taking away bonus money from Pat Healy after his failed drug test because of marijuana metabolites in his system and he wasn’t afraid to share his thoughts.

I feel bad for Pat Healy that they took a innocent mans money and I think the guy who took the money is the biggest Fag in the world,” Diaz wrote. He followed up that message with an interesting hash tag.

When UFC president Dana White caught wind of the comments, he went to The Underground to respond and it was clear that he wasn’t happy.

He will be cut or fined for that tweet. [Expletive] ridiculous ,” White wrote.

It would be surprising if the UFC released Diaz, but they have released fighters from the roster because of social media comments before. Bantamweight Miguel Torres was previously released from the organization because of his “rape van” tweet.

Diaz will likely just receive a very hefty fine and stern warning from Dana White. In the end, the two will make up and get past their beef. After all, this is just Nate Diaz being Nate Diaz.

    Other than one word he used, I totally agree with Diaz.
