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 âdidnât like the direction the UFC is going in anywayâ.
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.
âI really donât have a reaction to it because, to be honest, Dana WhiteâŚitâs sad but heâs uneducated to the sport and the industry,â Riddle said this week to Stephanie Joplin.
âHeâs calling me a moron for using my medicine when half his fighters are on steroids. Itâs pretty offensive, but at the same time, I am looking at the source, and he canât help himself.
âEven now, I donât have a dislike for Dana White or the UFC. But really, heâs just a juice monkey whoâs bald, who doesnât know sh** about business. He just yells the F word and expects things to be handed to him.â
