UFC Statement

 


Matthew Riddle tested positive for marijuana metabolites following his bout at UFC on FUEL TV 7 in London, England on February 16, 2013. This is Riddle’s second failed drug test for marijuana within the past seven months. Riddle previously failed a post-fight drug test due to marijuana following his UFC 149 victory over Chris Clements.

As such, the UFC organization is exercising its right to terminate Riddle for breach of his obligations under his Promotional Agreement as well as the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy. The UFC organization has a strict, consistent policy against the use of any illegal and/or performance-enhancing drugs, stimulants or masking agents. The outcome of the bout against Che Mills was changed to a no contest and the results of the positive test will be reported to the official Association of Boxing Commissions MMA record-keeper.

Immaculata - So are they bringing back Che?

Ariel said no on twitter.

 

Makes sense as the UFC considers THC an illegal recreational drug, not a PED. With Vera Thiago was on PEDs, hence why they brought him back.

 

Still hypocricy with Diaz and Herman not getting the Axe for 2 weed positives.

Well I think it is absolutely pathetic that weed is illegal and tested for in sporting events, it is a fact of life that there is thousands of professions that will can your ass for one positive test for weed.

A dumb rule is still a rule until the rules get changed (which they should be).

I think a key factor as well is the "second time in 7 months". The frequency of incidents shows a flagrant disregard for the rules (agree with them or not).

If I was his boss I would have 0 faith that this wouldn't happen again his next fight. Phone Post
