Matthew Riddle tested positive for Marijuana at UFC 149. After the incident, Riddle stated in an interview that:

“Honestly, it probably keeps me from beating my three kids because they’re always screaming and crying at me and my wife’s crazy and you know what life’s like..”

After testing positive again following UFC on Fuel TV 7, he was released from the organization. Instead of apologizing for his failed test, Riddle said:

“What I see happening is a year or two from now the UFC calls me back, after I’ve won probably like five or six fights, hopefully, and I’ll probably at the time say no.”

Dana White, president of the organization, was recently asked about Riddle’s cut following the UFC 158 pre-fight Press Conference:

“Everybody is going to have an excuse of why they were cut,” White said. “Matt Riddle did an interview before that fight where he said ‘I smoke weed so that I don’t beat my children’, then he tests positive for it. He’s a f*****g moron. That’s why he’s not here. He’s cut because he’s a moron.”

Dana then weighed in on Riddle’s statement that he would refuse a return offer from the UFC:

“I’ll make it real easy for him, we just won’t ask him.”

Do you think Riddle should have been cut? Will Riddle be back in the UFC? Are Dana’s thoughts justified?
