Matt Riddle: “This is my medical marijuana license. I don’t take other medications.”

With recent news of Matt Riddle failing a UFC 149 post-fight drug test, in turn having his win against Chris Clements overturned by the Calgary Combative Sports Commission, “Deep Waters” has received major criticism from fans and media alike. The TUF veteran has ostensibly had enough as he took to twitter to voice his frustration, saying, “This is my medical marijuana license. I don’t take other medications, so don’t hate” as well as tweeting a picture of his medical marijuana license.

While Riddle essentially did nothing wrong, this is the Nick Diaz situation all over again, filling everyone with consternation about the situation. Despite the fact that it is legal use of marijuana in this case, Riddle now has a no contest on his record instead of a win. While the 90 suspension was irrelevant, considering he would not have fought in that time in either case, it’s still an unfortunate situation for the young welterweight.
