Well it seems that Matthew Riddle (7-3-2) has finally found a promotion he can call home after one of the most turbulent years in any MMA fighters life.
One year, two releases, four promotions, one retirement, and one win overturned…
Riddle has now signed to his fourth MMA promotion in less than a year. He was released from the UFC last February following testing positive for marijuana after his win over Che Mills. He then signed with Legacy FC before having his contract bought out by Bellator. There he retired, then came back and was then released and has now signed a contract with Titan FC.
The recently featured “High Times” fighter (see below), who has fought all 12 of his professional fights in the UFC, will meet another recently released UFC fighter Michael Kuiper (12-3) in the co-main event. The Dutch mixed martial artist started his career with an impressive 11-0 run on the European scene before going on a 1-3 skid in the UFC.
Titan FC 27 takes place on February 28th in Kansas and will be headlined by another pair of former UFC fighters Mike Ricci (8-4) vs Jorge Gurgel (14-9).
