Riddle tweets image of his medical marijuana card

Monday, October 22, 2012

At UFC 149 on July 21 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Matt Riddle tapped Chris Clements to win a $65,000 “Submission of the Night” performance bonus.

90 days after the fight, the Calgary Combative Sports Commission (CCSC) revealed that Riddle had been suspended after testing positive for marijuana. However, the suspension was for 90 days, and expired shortly after the announcement, as it was applied retroactively.

Shortly there after, the CCSC announced that the bout result had been changed to No Contest.

There is no word on whether this will effect his win and bonus money.

Riddle took to Twitter for the first tme in over a month, and offered proof that he use marijuana in Nevada legally.

Read entire twitter…

While Riddle offered evidence that he was not using marijuana illegally, unfortunately, the fact that the marijuana was used legally in Nevada does not mean he is allowed to have it in his system during a fight in Calgary.
