Zuffa, LLC, owner of the Ultimate Fighting Championship®, released the following statement today:
 
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.

That's too much. It should be like $40.00 or something. That'd be more fair.

Why do cage fighters need to be politically correct?

At least Zuffa, with their hatred of guys like Roy Nelson and Mark Hunt and worship of guys like Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem are finally admitting by being so overly sensitive and catering towards p.c. Faggots, are finally admitting that closeted fags and full on queers are a core part of their audience. Phone Post

Lame. Dana should match it since he uses the "Fag" or "Faggot" word too. Phone Post

Nate should do stand up like Rogan. Then everything he says or tweets will be protected under the umbrella of 'artistic integrity'! Phone Post 3.0

As the UFC continues moving toward becoming a mainstream sport they can't have fighters making crazy comments like that. Punishment is completely fair and a a good lesson for other fighters they need to watch what they say. Phone Post

That's lame....and Caraway opened himself up for it when he opened his mouth on the issue IMO. Diaz as usual comes off like a wiener but I think Caraway looks like a brown noser in this instance. Phone Post 3.0

I know what you're saying but these guys are fighters, not politicians.

Chael Sonnen picks his target and then CONSTANTLY harasses them on twitter and every other avenue he can find. He insults peoples country if origin as well as their wives. He has never once gotten in trouble with the UFC brass. Nate puts out one tweet with the other taboo F-word and gets punished. Phone Post 3.0

Anderson was fined 50k for skipping a press day as well.

Zuffa getting them fines.

Nate should at least be able to choose which charity his money goes to.

This is what I don't get. Why didn't they fine Nick instead of pulling him from the GSP fight? Phone Post 3.0

People are saying that calling someone a fag is equivment to calling someone a nigger. It is and it isn't. They're both pejoratives but people are so sensitive to the "N" word now that using it is seen as so excessive that they would have had to get rid of Diaz.
I think it's along the lines of calling someone a Jew. You're taking what is a stereotypical trait of a group of people that everyone sees as a negative and ascribing those traits to someone else in the hopes of angering or demeaning them.
He was insensitive, he was wrong, he has been punished, and now we should move on. Phone Post
