Matt Riddle Not Interested In Any Future UFC Return, Dana White Agrees

Matt Riddle went on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani earlier this week and discussed his recent release from the UFC.

Riddle, who was cut following a second failed drug test for marijuana, posted a 7-3-2 mark inside the Octagon. His two no-contests were originally victories.

I think they were just looking for a reason to get rid of me. I really don’t like the direction they’re taking the company. They’re firing high-level talent so they can have lower-level talent just scrap.

The comments made by Riddle didn’t go unnoticed by UFC president Dana White, who replied to a Twitter message saying “we can make sure that happens” in regards to Riddle saying he had no interest in ever fighting for the promotion again.
