Fresh off a 90-day suspension due to a failed drug test, Matt Riddle (6-3 MMA, 7-3 UFC) has stepped up as a late replacement for injured Stephen Thompson (6-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) and now meets welterweight Besam Yousef (6-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) next month at UFC 154.

UFC officials today announced the change.

UFC 154 takes place Nov. 17 at Montreal's Bell Centre.

The night's main card, including UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre vs. interim titleholder Carlos Condit, airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook. Riddle vs. Yousef, which is the card's 13th fight, is slated for the Facebook stream.

I agree. This is a good replacement and Riddle should be considered a significant favourite even with the short notice.

I thought Riddle had to sit out for using weed as legal medication?
