Dana White rips Matt Riddle


Since leaving the UFC Matt Riddle has been vocal and critical about his experience with the UFC, blasting his former employee for their dealing with fighters. UFC President Dana White was a guest on UFC Tonight last night and when asked about the topic, had plenty to stay:

"From 2011 to 2013, that guy was making $162,000 a year. Then he comes out and says he was treated horrible. He was making something like 52 or $54,000 a fight to fight three times a year. We have health insurance here, which has never been done in the history of the world with fight promoters. The reason he's not in UFC any more IS BECAUSE HE COULD NOT PASS A DRUG TEST! You have to go to work three times a year, and you couldn't pass a drug test? You're so weak-minded and so addicted to marijuana, that you couldn't stay off it enough to pass a drug test three times a year. Well, guess what dummy, they drug test in the real world, too!"

Guy had 12 FIGHTS in the UFC against NOBODIES and he has the nerve to whine about his career. He had one of the easiest UFC careers imaginable. He's a goofball and a baby.

Well, yeah, of course. I was making a dumb reference to the dumb thing Matt said about smoking weed so he doesn't beat his kids.

I agree with everything Dana said, but this also seems kinda petty and overaggressive. No one who saw the stupid shit Riddle said were going to suddenly hate his product or give him bad press and it's not like he went out seeking the Culinary Union or something. Probably coulda let this one slide, but Riddle certainly dug his own grave.

Really? He's fucking tentative for one fight, after getting three straight KOs/TKOs and you think he deserved to be cut. Fucking Dan Hardy (Sorry if you're lurking Dan, I'm actually glad you didn't get cut) loses 4 straight, and certainly set off the streak in a tepid and embarassing fight, and he's A-OK. There's no consistency, and it's even more ridiculous because this was a fighter ending fights and in exciting fashion. He had one bad fight and got cut with no reasoning whatsoever. It's the UFC's perogative, but that's one of the few cuts I absolutely can't side with BLAF on -- Fitch bugged me to, but everyone kinda saw that coming with their chemistry and his slide.

Dana is right, dumbass blew a great career and opportunity for weed. Even if he has a license, he knew it was against the commissions rules.
