Matt Riddle Steps In, Will Face Besam Yousef At UFC 154

Matt Riddle will replace an injured Stephen Thompson and face Besam Yousef at UFC 154: St-Pierre vs. Condit. UFC officials confirmed the new fight on Monday.

UFC 154 takes place November 17 from Montreal. Riddle-Yousef will go down on the prelims.

Riddle (7-3) is coming off a 90-day suspension for a failed post-fight drug test following a submission win over Chris Clements. The decision was changed to a no-contest after the failed test for marijuana.

Yousef (6-1) lost his UFC debut to Simeon Thoresen earlier this year. Of his six wins, five have been stoppage victories.
