UFC President Dana White was having a wonderful time talking with Chael and Kenny on UFC Tonight. That is, until a certain someone was brought up.
That certain someone is former UFC welterweight, TUF competitor and recently retired fighter Matt Riddle.
After failing two drug tests in a three fight span, Riddle was released from the UFC in 2013. Now, after claiming that he can no longer financially support himself by being a professional MMA fighter, he has chosen to retire from the sport entirely.
