By Evan Stoumbelis
Following UFC 149, welterweight Matthew Riddle failed his post-fight drug test while testing positive for Marijuana. Riddle won his bout by defeating Canadian Chris Clements via arm-triangle. The third round submission was enough to earn Riddle submission of the night honors.

Riddle was suspended for 90-days following the July 21st event. His suspension is lifted as of tomorrow, Friday October 19th. Riddle apologized for his actions to a source close to him, and chose not to appeal his suspension. Riddle was a member of Season 7 of The Ultimate Fighter, losing in the second round to Tim Credeur.

Also suspended was bantamweight Francisco Rivera who defeated Roland Delorme by KO. His first round knockout earned him knockout of the night honors. Rivera tested positive for an unnamed over the counter stimulant, warranting a 90-day suspension as well, his suspension is also lifted as of tomorrow October 19th.

    Yeah to these CROOKS at the athletic commission “POT” is the worst thing anyone athlete could ever have in their system. STEROIDS is nothing compared to pot to these a’ssholes.

    Nate “THE CHEAT” Marquardt tested positive for NANDROLONE/DECA which most people know is a HIGHLY effective ILLEGAL ANABOLIC STEROID. VERY POPULAR WITH ATHLETES BECAUSE ITS CHEAP AND WORKS LIKE MAIGIC IN NO TIME AT ALL. MAKES YOU TRAIN LIKE AN ANIMAL AND FIGHT LIKE AND ANIMAL WITH ENDURANCE AND STRENGTH GAINS (natural) FIGHTERS COULD ONLY DREAM OF. Not only did Nate “THE CHEAT” get off with a slap on his hand they only fined him $2500 and they didn’t even change his CHEATING ASS win over Ivan Salsvery to a “NO CONTEST”

    REALITY TO THESE IDIOT/CORRUPT ATHLETIC COMMISSIONS STEROIDS ARE CHEATING POT IS A DOWNER AND IF ANYTHING MAKES A FIGHTER HAVE A DISADVANATGE.

      If you think weed is a downer then you either have never smoked pot or even know what it is. Or ur just a complete idiot.

      • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

        Weed sure the hell aint a performance enhancer and steroids are BIGTIME

      • joejitsu says:

        marijuana has been proven to have a calming relaxing effect, suppressing blood sugars and causing drowsiness. the only thing it stimulates is your appetite. I have smoked it AND i am familiar with its effects on the human body and the mechanics of same. while it is not a “downer” in the way barbituates or opiods are, it is anything BUT a stimulant. do the research.

  4. GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

    KEITH KIZER IS A CROOK THAT I HONESTLY BELIEVE. ANYONE WHO COULD HIRE CHAEL SONNEN AS AN ADVISER FOR THE NEVADA ATHLETIC COMMISSION FOR SCREENING OUT TRT USERS HAS TO BE A CROOK.

    Thats like having John Gotti re-write the RICCO laws
