Matthew Riddle has had it with MMA. He's fed up, disgusted and more than a little bit pissed off with the sport he's dedicated himself to since 2008.

My money is on him being back before the end of 2014. He's proven to be not the most mature person and I think after he really takes the time to think about this, he'll be back.

Egh harder for me to defend him after reading this article as opposed to my response last night. That being said he did bring up something i JUST ranted on in the last thread about Cruz. Fickle fans and keyboard warriors can suck the passion out of anyone. I really hope MMA fan's can clean up their image man

'Riddle' me this Batman....err, I mean CHAEL-man - - -

1) His 1,350 strikes lands him #8 all-time between CHAEL (1,452) and one Nathan Diaz (1,343)

2) He helped popularize the phrase "butter-toothed Brit"

Good luck out there Matt

Hopefully Bellator re-thinks it & gets him a fight in October or November, which they should easily be able to do with 8 scheduled events in those 2 months.

If you're incredibly weak-minded keyboard warriors might bother someone. MMA fans have only gotten worse in the last decade and will continue to do so until the sport is killed by fence hugging and LnP.

Yes yes I do. Between Twitter warrior's & idiots on this site I'd saymma is littered with these type of unappreciative
fans who think their opinions are fact. I think this site is better then most but id still say there are a lot of those types here. Just go check out the rashad evans story on mmafighting.com yesterday. He was talking about the exact same thing Riddle was about the fans. & that guy was a former world champ, he lost 2 in a row & fans had no mercey. Its sad to see really

First off, if you don't like this site because we have differing opinions, then please leave or go back to your silent ways. This is one of the most mature and well informed MMA forums you will find. At least teh kingsmasher was funny, you are just being a moron. Secondly, if you take things like that on twitter seriously, you have problems.

I think it's time to take a step outside of your little box and look around. Listen to a sports radio show once in a while or go to other sports sites. Maybe you should listen to WGR 550 (if you can get it) after Bills games or take a listen to the Fan 590 after Leafs or Jays games (probably only available to you via internet). Those fans are relentless and fall in line with that you think all us MMA fans are. I can only imagine what a post game radio show is like in NYC, Boston, Philly, etc

It's sad to hear Riddle is thinking this way, I always loved to watch him fight. He has a ton of potential I hope he changes his mind.

If Bellator isnt going to find him an opponent release him so he can go elsewhere. It sad to see an organization screw over a young fighter with a ton of talent.

The bigger the sport the more the assholes.
This site is incredibly mature.

Humans are naturally inclined to feel negative about something, which is why there is so many "trolls" or haters for every 50 people who step up to complain there will be 1 person who stepped up to compliment. We find it easy to admit faults in people but find it hard to accept someone is doing something right.

What you are doing here is being negative about the fans and then about this site as well.

Instead of saying good job finding the news FastKnockout, I know your not being paid for that.
You decided to jump straight in and become an "asshole" take everything for granted fan.

Instead of insulting the one or two people on this site why don't you appreciate the ones who aren't? Or is it easier for you to play it negative and complain...

People are jerks on the inernet? Good lord I'm out of here. Matt does bring up some valid points about paying bills. I couldn't go 9 months without a paycheck. I bet it does suck to have thousands of people tell you how shitty you are every day from 1000s of miles away. I only get it from a few people here and I don't like it then.

I have a hard time feeling sorry for the guy when all he had to do to keep his job with the UFC was quit smoking weed for a little while. It's really not that difficult of a thing to do. On top of that, I don't mean to fighter bash, but Riddle was never really all that great of a fighter anyways. It's not like he would've been a champion or anything.

Isn't Riddle fighting in like 9 days? High Times isn't going to pay him much for an interview so he'd better keep fighting. It's difficult enough to get a job even if you can pass a piss test.
