Riddle fails drug test, released by UFC
UFC welterweight Matthew Riddle is the latest fighter to find himself out of work.
His use of medical marijuana has led to another failed drug test, following UFC on FUEL TV 7.
Riddle earned a split-decision win on the card. However, the win will now be changed to a No Contest, meaning Che Mills, the defeated fighter, would be 2-1 in the UFC.
The news was confirmed by Riddle himself to MMAJunkie.com.
Mills was cut earlier this month along with a host of other fighters.
This is the second positive test Riddle has delivered due to his use of medicinal marijuana. He is licensed to use in Nevada, where he lives, but had a plan to give his system enough time to deliver a negative sample.
His first failed test sample came at UFC 149 against Chris Clements.
