Season: TUF 7
Record (UFC Record): 7-3, 2 NC (7-3, 2 NC)
If you look at Matt Riddle's record, it's hard to say he hasn't been successful in the Octagon. However, given the situation, he may be one of the biggest disappointments in MMA history.
He came into TUF with no professional fights but showed his potential and raw skill while competing on the show. He even got a shot to fight at the finale, where he beat Dante Rivera by decision to earn a spot on the roster.
He then traded wins and losses for a while, but at the tail end of his tenure with the company, it looked as if he had finally turned a corner. He was looking like a force to be reckoned with, winning matches in smart fights as opposed to the dogfights like he was having before.
Then, we found out that Riddle liked the green medicine.
His wins over Chris Clements and Che Mills were overturned due to failed drug tests. The Mills bouts was the last straw, as the UFC cut Riddle for not being able to urinate cleanly.
He then was supposed to compete for Bellator, but that never amounted to anything. Now, after time away from the sport, he is ready to go with Titan Fighting Championship.
Just think, if Riddle could pass a drug test, he'd still be in the UFC, taking on some of the top welterweights in the world. Funny how those things work.
