Matt Riddle To Face Besam Yousef At UFC 154

Matt Riddle, fresh off a 90-day suspension, will return to action next month to face Besam Yousef. The two will compete on the prelims of UFC 154 on November 17 from Montreal.

Riddle (7-3) was suspended 90 days following a failed post-fight drug test for marijuana. His submission win over Chris Clements was changed to a no-contest after the test results came back positive.

Yousef (6-1) was expecting to meet Stephen Thompson, but Thompson was knocked out with a training injury. Yousef suffered his first pro loss in his UFC debut to Simeon Thoresen earlier this year.
