Barbalos - career = trashed.

And you know this h ow? He will get like 4 to 6 fights a year and less of the demands ufc ask for. He will probably end up making more than he did in ufc. Not everyone loves to fight for ufc.

Well if he didn't want to fight for the UFC (the only org he's ever fought for), why wasn't he trying to get out of his contract to make the big bucks fighting 6 times a year in a smaller org? Or was it a cunning plan, getting himself fired for testing positive so he could start making the real money out of the UFC? LOL, don't kid yourself. If you can perform at a high level in the UFC you will make more money than elsewhere, generally. It also isn't a guarantee that Riddle will command good money elsewhere forever off the back of his UFC stint.

willienugget - No - Nobody has ever said a TUE was available in Nevada. Kizer said he would hear it if anyone wanted to present a case.

Yes - There are legitimate doctors who will recommend marijuana.

Currently in Colorado and Washington it is still banned during competition.
I think the issue is definitely not his smoking. The issue is that he failed do what he needed to do to test clean which he was contractually obligated to do resulting in bout outcomes having to be overturned and him having to serve suspensions. His inability or unwillingness to piss clean cost both the company and himself money. After which he refused to accept responsibility instead saying 'they're not allowing me to take my medicine'. Who?! Dana? He doesn't give a fuck what you recreationally consume so long as you test clean. If riddle wants to bitch about the rules bitch to the commission. Instead he publicly and unjustly blames his boss. His mismanagement of his own urine is the only reason he's unemployed. You sign a contract you should live up to it. And unless you're pulling in several hundred thousand PPV buys, expect to be fucking fired over it. Phone Post

Steve4192 - Matt keeps on referring to weed as 'his medicine', yet he has never bothered to apply for a TUE. Kizer has made it clear that the TUE is available, but no one has ever applied for the damn thing.

Zuffa basically runs their overseas shows based on the Nevada rules and regulations. Matt might still have a job if he went through the effort of getting a TUE from Nevada. But I guess he got high (errr medicated) and forgot to apply.
The fact that no one is talking about this makes me wanna punch myself in the face. I raised the question last year well before nick tested positive again. Idk why fighters are continually overlooking this! I even bumped my thread about a week and a half ago and it got zero traffic. Makes no sense. They will jump through the hoops to cheat with test but they are unwilling to go through the process to get exemption for something some of them actually need. Mind bottling. Phone Post

I wonder what are the rules of the marijuana exemption? Is there a limit to how much metabolites you can have in your system?

The Herman thing does actually raise a valid point

The difference IMO is that you have one employee (Herman) who if my memory serves me correctly admitted he had a problem and was willing to participate in seeking treatment. Accepting ownership of the problem he created.

Then you have another employee who is stating that he doesn't have a problem and is blaming everyone else for the situation he created.

I'm not passing judgement on weed, Riddle never applied for the TUE but still insist on blaming everyone else for getting canned.

As an employer I would be more willing to keep the employee who is owning their mistake and seeking help than an employee who is unwilling too. Phone Post

You think Bellator wants a guy who's gonna fuck up one of their tournaments by pissing hot?

He wouldn't be a contender in Bellator anyway.

Sorta but it was after he flat out denied ever having smoked marijuana and blamed second hand smoke caused the failure.
Thanks for the clarification bro. Phone Post

He needs somebody to step in and guide his career. Burning the UFC bridge could also cause some of the smaller orgs to steer clear of him.

Yeah Ironically Riddle is the guy out of the two that hasn't denied smoking it and it being legit he just wants to make a stink about the concept and process when caught. Nick just tends to do his normal tangent stuff and get into fights with the commsission

I wish he'd shut up and go away. His fights are either boring or laughable because he is boxercising thin air while his opponent is 5 feet away Phone Post
