Recently-released UFC fighter Matt Riddle has a new home, as the 27-year-old has signed a contract with Legacy Fighting Championship.
Riddle confirmed the news on his Twitter page. He was cut by the UFC after a second failed drug test for marijuana.
Yep I’m fighting @legacyfighting can’t wait it’s gonna be a blood bath

No date for his debut with the company has been announced. Legacy FC is televised by AXS TV.
Riddle, who is 7-3 with two no-contests in his career, was always an exciting fighter to watch inside the Octagon. You would have to think he should be a standout for Legacy FC on the regional tour.
