UFC veteran Nate Diaz is facing disciplinary action from the promotion after directing a homophobic slur towards Bryan Caraway this afternoon via Twitter.

Diaz apparently tweeted the following about Pat Healy’s recent positive test for marijuana, which resulted in having his UFC 159 victory over Jim Miller changed to a no-contest.

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 ..

Caraway was awarded the UFC 159, “Submission of the Night” and $65,000 this week after Healy became exempt for the award because of his positive test. Healy was initially given the bonus for his third round, rear-naked-choke finish of Miller.

Caraway submitted Johnny Bedford at the April 27th event with a third round guillotine choke.

MMA Junkie.com’s John Morgan reported via Twitter that UFC President Dana White has informed him that Diaz will be fined, suspended or even cut for the tweet.
