Riddle Joined BJPenn.Com Radio tonight to discuss what happened and what he plans on doing next.

"They (UFC Legal Department) hit me up yesterday and said I failed a drug test," Riddle told BJPenn.Com Radio. "I still don't know how it's possible; I quit smoking three weeks out from the fight, I've passed drug tests when I quit two weeks out from a fight; it's just crazy. I asked for my numbers and they sent me a form that just aid I tested positive for marijuana. It didn't say how much, it just said I was over the amount,"

"It is what it is I've failed two drug tests in seven months. There's not much I can do I was prescribed my medicine and I'm going to take it. I got fired for taking my medicine because I don't want to take pharmaceutical drugs or testosterone. This is what works for me, it's just s****y, but it is what it is."

He should've quit smoking 30 days out, or got some of that stuff you drink that removes all the toxins from your body.

There is plenty of other natural stuff he could take for ADHD...but he doesn't want to because it won't get him high.

Adderall is not natural in the least bit (it's amphetamine), and yes it gets you high Phone Post

He's a drug addict plain and simple. He knew he shouldn't be smoking and yet chose to do so. The fault is all his. Phone Post

as a pot head i agree, but if they could test if you fought high i would agree but who cares if he blazes the day before or after for that matter. i think overall the laws are bullshit but he knew whats up and made his decision.

I'm surprised he tested positive if he quit 3 weeks before his fight. I would guess an athlete would detox faster than an inactive person.

I appreciate his candid honest response. I think they should show him the actual results of the test. With all that Amal talking Joe Silva I'd want to be sure I actually failed. Phone Post

Even if he smokes it in Washington or a free to smoke state, he's still not allowed to have it in his system for a fight.

Whoever mentioned TRT is spot on.

Prescription for testosterone being fine and prescription for weed not is an absurdity to the utmost degree.

You can't succeed, with weed. Unless you're Joe Rogan of course.

He's acting like he's the only person in the world that can't smoke weed because of their job. It's like, hey mother fucker, welcome to the real world. On top of that, you not only know WELL in advance when you'll be tested, you're in complete control of when you'll be tested. Boo hoo. Phone Post
