UFC 149 Fighters Matt Riddle, Francisco Rivera Suspended

Matt Riddle and Francisco Rivera, who each earned wins this past July at UFC 149, were suspended by the Calgary Combative Sports Commission, according to a report by MMAjunkie.com.

Riddle was found to have marijuana in his system, while Rivera was suspended for an undisclosed over-the-counter stimulant. Both fighters served 90-day suspensions, which expire on Friday.

Riddle (7-3) earned Submission of the Night when he locked up an arm triangle on Chris Clements. He has fought all 10 of his professional fights inside the Octagon.

Rivera (9-2) scored his second UFC victory when he knocked out Roland Delorme.

The commission allowed both results to stand.
