Right about now, bantamweight Bryan Caraway probably wishes he was still the guy who everyone made fun of for being the submissive boyfriend of fellow UFC fighter Miesha Tate.
Instead, "Kid Lightning" has been under fire for the better part of this week for accepting Pat Healy's "Submission of the Night" bonus from UFC 159 after slamming fighters who use marijuana, according to MMAJunkie.com.
MMAJunkie.com also reported that Healy was to have his "Submission of the Night," "Knockout of the Night" and win bonuses, totaling $135,000, revoked after testing positive for marijuana after the April pay-per-view event.
Now, the saga continues as Bellator women's flyweight Michelle Ould accused Caraway of being a hypocrite.
Ould wrote on Twitter that despite Caraway's adamant anti-drug stance, he used to sell performance-enhancing drugs to her roommate.
Dude use to sell my ex roommate PED's - but he hates weed -go figure
It didn't take long for the tweet to be brought to Caraway's attention, where he said that Ould made up the story to gain notoriety.
Ould goes on to say what she stated is a fact that she has known for years and dismisses Caraway's notion that maybe she has him confused with someone else.
The Bellator competitor trains at Oregon's famed Team Quest facility, a gym Caraway once called home, so it's not unfathomable the two have some mutual acquaintances and/or friends.
However, beyond that, there are few certainties to draw any conclusions from.
Dozens of fans have commented on T-Cat's Twitter page since then, with only one person telling a similar story:
@michelleouldmma Caraway offered my friend PED's in September 2008. He wont admit it...— CJ Kingy (@CJ_Kingyy) May 17, 2013
Ould isn't the first fighter to call out Caraway in this situation.
Recent UFC lightweight contender Nate Diaz was issued a 90-day suspension and $20,000 fine in light of a tweet, which has since been deleted, where he aimed a homosexual slur at Caraway for accepting Healy's "Submission of the Night" bonus (via UFC.com).
Is there any possibility the relatively unknown Ould has broken a big story here, or is this simply an odd situation that has now spiraled out of control?
