Following the Thursday news that a pair of UFC 149 fighters had tested positive for banned substances, the UFC has issued a statement.

As MMAjunkie.com reported earlier this week, UFC 149 fighters Matt Riddle and Francisco Rivera tested positive following the July event. Riddle tested positive for marijuana, while Rivera was flagged for an over-the-counter stimulant.

Both were suspended for 90 days by the Calgary Combative Sports Commission. Those suspensions expired on Friday, the day the UFC issued its statement.

I gotta be the one to say it - Riddle is not so bad now I know he's a stoner.

Also BS. Weed should not be on the list of banned substances, is coffee banned?

I agree with the first statement, but I think you have to disregard me agreeing and the prop I am about to give you, because there's a banned substance in my body.

Funny I would have guessed it was Riddle was on the uppers. Last fight I saw from riddle he pumped a jab about 1300 times and failed to land it once.

Seriously though, that's a shame because Rivera looked fantastic against Delorme. It wasn't so much a matter of being physically overpowering, more in that he landed a lot of really hard, clean counters on a super tough dude. Riddle looked good as well, but that was more about him finally using his wrestling and grappling.

Hope he's just as impressive off that stimulant.

Over the counter stimulants and weed> Whatever Overeem uses.

This is single-handedly THE BIGGEST bullshit I've heard in quite some time!! An MMA victory overturned bc dude had THC in his system?? Seriously? We should stand against these f*ckheads that make these decisions as fans and get something done about this. I don't know what or how lol but seriously this shit has to stop!
