Matt Riddle at UFC 143UFC castoff Matt Riddle has already found a new home following his release by the MMA juggernaut.

Riddle (7-3) will fight Artenas Young (9-5) at Legacy FC 21 on July 19 in Houston, according to AXS TV’s Inside MMA.

Riddle made his way to the Octagon via season seven of The Ultimate Fighter reality series, fighting 12 times there. His record, however, stands at 7-3 due to two of his bouts being ruled no contests after Riddle tested positive for marijuana metabolites following both of them.

His most recent fight was initially a split decision victory over Che Mills at UFC on Fuel TV 7. Following his positive drug test results after that bout, it was changed to a no contest and Riddle was released from his UFC contract.

He’ll know fight for Legacy FC on AXS TV this summer.

Also scheduled on the Legacy FC 21 fight card will be bouts including Pride and Strikeforce veteran Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos, middleweight contender Bubba Bush, NCAA Division 1 champ Darrion Caldwell, and MTV caged star Matt Schnell. It will take place at the Houston Arena Theatre.
