Matt Riddle Doesn’t Like UFC’s Current Direction

Matt Riddle’s second suspension for marijuana left him shocked as he had stopped smoking 21 days before his UFC on FUEL TV 7 fight against Che Mills. The UFC decided to release Riddle as a result and his win was overturned to a no contest. Riddle has taken the release personal and doesn’t seem interested in a UFC return.

“I think they were just looking for a reason to get rid of me,” said Riddle on The MMA Hour. “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 amount of damage Riddle has taken was a reason for the 27-year-old not jumping at the idea of a possible Octagon return as he is comfortable when it comes to revenue. He’s competed only out of the UFC and left with a 7-3-2 record. Both no contest were initially wins.

Mills was also released after the loss and since signed with Cage Warriors. Riddle’s return to action isn’t known.
