Word during the UFC 149 post-fight press conference made it seem like a future match between Dan Hardy and Matt Riddle was ready to be signed.
UFC president Dana White sparked some interesting comments from Riddle during the conference, and the fighter made it known that he would like to face Hardy inside the Octagon.
Well, according to “The Outlaw,” Riddle doesn’t deserve the time of day, let alone a fight, with him.
“Why the hell would I fight Riddle?” Hardy posted on Twitter. “There is no value in it for me and I’d be forced to look at him more than I have to now. (Riddle is) another Justin Bieber looking idiot that clearly knows nothing about the sport.”
Riddle told a story about how he hates the British because when he fought over in England once, “they were very cruel to me.” Riddle even mentioned that a fan spit in his mouth.
Hardy is currently set to face Amir Sadollah at UFC on FUEL TV 5 in England, but it seems very likely that the UFC will keep Riddle on speed dial in case of an emergency.
