Matthew Riddle was released from his UFC contract after failing a drug test at the recent UFC on FUEL 7 event in London, England.
Riddle, a medical marijuana user, tested positive for cannabis and had his win over Che Mills declared a no contest. He was then returned to the regional leagues, which he declared himself to be happy with because he ‚Äúdidn‚Äôt like the direction the UFC is going in anyway‚ÄĚ.
Last week UFC president Dana White responded by declaring Riddle a moron and saying Riddle, who had said he would refuse an invitation to rejoin the UFC, would now never be getting that call back.
‚ÄúI really don‚Äôt have a reaction to it because, to be honest, Dana White‚Ä¶it‚Äôs sad but he‚Äôs uneducated to the sport and the industry,‚ÄĚ Riddle said this week to Stephanie Joplin.
‚ÄúHe‚Äôs calling me a moron for using my medicine when half his fighters are on steroids. It‚Äôs pretty offensive, but at the same time, I am looking at the source, and he can‚Äôt help himself.
‚ÄúEven now, I don‚Äôt have a dislike for Dana White or the UFC. But really, he‚Äôs just a juice monkey who‚Äôs bald, who doesn‚Äôt know sh** about business. He just yells the F word and expects things to be handed to him.‚ÄĚ
