The events of the past few weeks have soured the fighter's view of the UFC, to point where he wouldn't be overly disappointed if he was never invited back.
"Honestly, I would be fine with that," Riddle admitted. "I've already done a decent amount of damage in the UFC, you know, with fighting and having fun there, making a good amount of money. I'm 27, just hitting my stride."
Most surprisingly, though, Riddle said he may even reject the UFC's offer if it comes in the future.
"What I see happening is, a year or two from now the UFC calls me back after I've won probably like five or six fights, hopefully. And I'll probably, at the time, say, ‘No.' Because 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, and they'd rather have a brawl than a good technical fight. I think that's going to be their downfall, because the fans are getting more educated. They're getting smarter, and they don't want to just see a slugfest and two retarded guys with brain damage bleeding everywhere.
