• Matt Riddle Rips Dana White For Firing Him From UFC

UFC President Dana White recently said the following regarding firing NXT wrestler Matt Riddle from UFC:

“No, listen, I have no [regrets]. You know, I’ve heard interviews with Matt Riddle and he’s very fired up about being let go and everything. But at that place and that time where we were, it was the right move.

But I’m happy for him, I’m happy he’s been successful and is doing well and I don’t wish the kid any ill will.

I don’t hate Matt Riddle or dislike Matt Riddle in any way. I know he feels the opposite…as he should. But yeah, I don’t wish him any ill will or anything like that. I don’t regret the decision I made at that time.”

Riddle had the following to say about these comments on Instagram:

“Dana, I’m not mad that you fired me I’m mad because you’re a heartless moron with too much money and power and felt the need to call me a loser after you fired me when I was on a 4 fight win streak and had my 3rd child almost bankrupting me.

Also to say it was the right call to fire me is the dumbest thing ever, you literally tried to ruin my career/life because your a little bald b*tch that couldn’t control me, so stop lying it’s sad bro.”
