SIMPLE. This is how it shouldve went anyway.  How on earth did Caraway not get the bonus anyway!.  He took the fight on 6 DAYS notice. and not only did he get a sub he got one of the latest subs in UFC HISTORY with 16 seconds left!  Late subs are HARD.  but on short notice.  I think the shortest notice ever, he should be rewarded.  Futhermore he hit that gullotine from side mount.  High level stuff right there.  All these factors make that Submission more impressive.  Healy deserved fight of the night.  Caraway has the sub of the night.  Caraway was the one ROBBED in the first place. Plus he argued the bonus higher anyway!

I can't believe that anyone could possibly think that marijuana is a PED. Fucking ridiculous.
