“He's a f*cking moron…”
- During yesterday's media scrum, Dana White was asked about cutting Matt Riddle. Riddle had stated that the UFC released him due to his fight style and that they are cutting wrestlers. Here was White's response…
"We're not cutting wrestlers. And everyone's going to have an excuse for why they were cut. Matt Riddle did an interview before that fight where he said, 'I smoke weed so I don't beat my children.' Then he tests positive for it. He's a f---ing moron. That's why he's not in the UFC. He's a moron.
"He said it because I thought he had a boring fight? He's had boring fights before that one. He said if he was asked to get back in the UFC, he wouldn't come back. So yeah. I'll make it real easy for him. We just won't ask him. How's that?"
