Matt Riddle Defends Marijuana Use: “It Makes Me Very Nice” | UFC NEWS
“I think it’s really unfortunate they took a hard-earned win from me that I took on a week’s notice and I did everything in my power to pass that drug test, I’ve never failed a drug test in my life until that day and that was never my intention. So it does suck, but at the same time I’ll never forget that win. It was a great experience, a great feeling and I made $100,000 in one night, so you tell me who’s the winner if that’s a no contest.”
“I’ve explained it to other people, I’m very high strung. You can ask anybody who hangs out with me, when I’m not on my medicine — not that I’m hard to be around, but I’m very intense. You say something stupid I’ll f—— let you know, I go off. You know, I’m very, it’s almost like a New York minute, I’m very fast, I’m right to the point, I’m in your face. Like right now, ba-da-ba-ba, I’m talking very fast. I like to slow it down, I like to be normal, I like to be like a normal person and right now it’s like I’m on edge.”
“If I didn’t just get out of the cage I’d want to beat the s— out of somebody just for no reason. And that’s just how I’m wired, and I don’t like it. I like being the nice guy. So when I use, I’m a very nice guy and everybody around me loves me more. I’m just a much more pleasant person to be around.”
