Matt Riddle released by Bellator
Matt Riddle was release by the UFC after testing postive for marijuana in his last bout for them, and then was picked up by Bellator. After some problems with them as well, Bellator has released Riddle:
After withdrawing from the November 22nd fight, the promotion has decided to release Riddle.
“Matt was a guy we had high hopes for coming into Bellator,” Bellator Director of Communications Anthony Mazzuca said. “After Matt suffered his rib injury and withdrew from our tournament, we went back to the drawing board and got Matt another fight on November 22nd. Unfortunately, Matt very recently informed us he would not be fighting on November 22nd from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and at that point we decided to release Matt from Bellator. We wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
