Riddle To Dana: You’re A Heartless Moron
In 2013, Matt Riddle was riding a four-fight winning streak inside the UFC, but the organization’s president Dana White decided to release the fighter due to his testing positive twice for marijuana.
“I’ve heard interviews with Matt Riddle, and he’s very fired up about being let go and everything,” White told Barstool Sports of the current WWE star’s feelings towards him. “At that place and that time where we were, it was the right move. I’m happy for him. I’m happy that he’s been successful and he’s doing well. 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 I don’t wish him any ill will or anything. But no, I don’t regret the decision that I made at that time.”
Riddle, who appears on WWE’s NXT brand, took to Instagram to reply to White’s comments and imply that White almost ruined his and his family’s lives by releasing him unceremoniously.
“Dana, I’m not mad that you fired me,” Riddle wrote. “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 four-fight win streak and had my third 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 you’re a little bald bitch that couldn’t control me, so stop lying it’s sad bro.”
