Dana White Rips Matt Riddle for Comments About “Scumbags” and the MMA Biz (Video)


Dana White UFC on Fox 8 Post_9291UFC veteran Matt Riddle recently called it quits after an injury forced him out of his scheduled Bellator bout.

He told MMAJunkie.com that Bellator couldn’t get him back in another fight by the end of the year, leaving him without any financial means to sustain his family. So instead of sitting on the sidelines, Riddle said he had no choice but to retire and go get a regular job with a steady paycheck.

You’d think it would have been a difficult decision to make, but Riddle says it was rather easy because of the treatment he’s received throughout his career, including the years he fought in the Octagon.

UFC president Dana White didn’t take to kindly to Riddle’s comments and unloaded on his former fighter in this UFC Tonight web-exclusive video.
