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 â€śdidnâ€™t like the direction the UFC is going in anywayâ€ť.
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.
â€śI really donâ€™t have a reaction to it because, to be honest, Dana Whiteâ€¦itâ€™s sad but heâ€™s uneducated to the sport and the industry,â€ť Riddle said this week to Stephanie Joplin.
â€śHeâ€™s calling me a moron for using my medicine when half his fighters are on steroids. Itâ€™s pretty offensive, but at the same time, I am looking at the source, and he canâ€™t help himself.
â€śEven now, I donâ€™t have a dislike for Dana White or the UFC. But really, heâ€™s just a juice monkey whoâ€™s bald, who doesnâ€™t know sh** about business. He just yells the F word and expects things to be handed to him.â€ť
