Not one to sit by quietly in any situation, former UFC welterweight Matt Riddle shared his opinions with Stephanie Joplin in an interview posted yesterday. Riddle was cut from the UFC following his second failed drug test over marijuana, and insults between the fighter and UFC president, Dana White, ensued.
Most recently, White responded to Riddle’s claim that he would not come back to the UFC if they asked. White replied, “I’ll make it real easy for him, we just won’t ask him.” He further elaborated the reasoning behind cutting the fighter, saying that Riddle is “a ****ing moron. That’s why he’s not here. He’s cut because he’s a moron.”
In the interview, Riddle has now retorted by calling Dana White a “juice monkey who’s bald [and] who doesn’t know shit about business.” About Dana calling him a moron, Riddle claims, “I really don’t have a reaction to it because, to be honest, Dana White… it’s sad but he’s uneducated to the sport and the industry. He’s calling me a moron for using my medicine when half his fighters are on steroids. It’s pretty offensive.”
Riddle insists that, “even now, I don’t have a dislike for Dana White or the UFC.”
