Matt Riddle thinks the UFC doctored his sample


In addition to the UFC telling Riddle to pack his shit and leave town after winning a fight, Matt actually accused them of messing with his sample as some kind of grand conspiracy to purge the UFC of wrestlers.  From MMAFighting:

Riddle also remains suspicious regarding the validity of his most recent positive drug test. In addition to what Riddle perceived to be irregular handling procedures, the test discovered increased levels of Creatine in his system, which Riddle claims to have abstained from since he was 16 years old.

“A lot of lawyers think I have a lawsuit for wrongful termination,” Riddle said. “And, you know, I’m not really trying to go that route, because I like to fight and I’m not really trying to bellyache about it. But at the same time, if didn’t fail a drug test, and something was added to my urine, like Creatine and THC, or something like that, then I would like to know. Because I just think it was just really convenient. Then even after my fight, Dana White was making comments, ‘Oh, maybe if people started fighting more exciting, unlike Riddle lately’ … it just seems really fishy.”

Riddle plans to consult a physician to uncover the root of his allegedly increased Creatine levels.

Do the research for your supplements, man.  How many times have we seen this story?  I don’t even know how that got in me!  Doesn’t matter because it was and for Riddle that means his job.

Oh, and one last little dagger from The Ballad of Matt Riddle:

“What I see happening is, a year or two from now the UFC calls me back after I’ve won probably like five or six fights, hopefully. And I’ll probably, at the time, say, ‘No.’ Because I really don’t like the direction they’re taking the company.

Alright … peace out, then?

    He’s so full of shit. He most certainly does not have a suit for wrongful termination, and I’m quite sure no attorney has told him that. Also, I “love” his feigned incredulity that he tested positive when in the same interview he admits he smokes an eighth every day.

    the fight was ruled a no contest bro. he didn’t win shit.

    He pretty much lost his chances of going back to the UFC with those stupid comment. Dana tweeted they’ll make sure they never ask him back. Sometimes its better to shut your mouth when you’re on drugs.
