PLAYERS: Nate Diaz
In light of Nate Diaz’s offensive tweet on Thursday afternoon, the UFC has announced that the former lightweight contender has been suspended for three months and will be fined $20,000.  The UFC released an official statement on their website regarding the situation: “UFC lightweight Nate Diaz has received an immediate 90-day suspension and $20,000 fine for violating the UFC’s fighter code of conduct. The language used in his tweet was regrettable, offensive and inconsistent with the values and culture of the organization, and is not tolerated. The money will be donated to charity.” The suspension stems from a derogatory tweet Diaz put out on Thursday afternoon in reference to Pat Healy’s suspension. “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 f** in the world”
