UFC suspends Nate Diaz 'pending investigation' over controversial tweet

It didn't take long for the UFC to suspend Nate Diaz for his "f*g" tweet aimed at Bryan Caraway earlier today.

UFC lightweight Nate Diaz is now suspended merely hours after calling Bryan Caraway a "f*g" for accepting his SOTN bonus, which belonged to Pat Healy until Pat popped for pot (say that 5 times fast ... on weed).

MMA Fighting has an official statement from the UFC:

"We are very disappointed by Nate Diaz’s comments, which are in no way reflective of our organization. Nate is currently suspended pending internal investigation and we will provide further comment once the matter has been decided,"

Dana White also told Dave Meltzer that Diaz's future will be decided on Friday. White did say that Diaz could be released from the UFC in response to his actions today, but for the time being Nate is just suspended. Bloody Elbow will provide updates on this story as they come.
