Prior to his wrestling career, Matt Riddle was a successful MMA fighter in the UFC. The King of Bros was fired from the company after failing three drug tests, testing positive for marijuana.
UFC President Dana White criticized Riddle harshly after his retirement from the sport back in 2013. After Riddle claimed he was treated horribly by UFC higher-ups, White responded, calling him a “weak-minded dummy.”
From 2011 to 2013, that guy was making $162,000 a year. Then he comes out and says he was treated horrible. We have health insurance here, which has never been done in the history of the world with fight promoters. The reason he’s not in the UFC was because he couldn’t pass a drug test!
You’re so weak-minded and so addicted to marijuana, that you couldn’t stay off of it enough to pass a drug test three times a year? Well, guess what dummy? They drug test in the real world, too!”
Now signed to the biggest wrestling company in the world, Riddle took a shot at White on Twitter.
Hey Dana remember that time you fired me and talked all that shit on me to the world and called me a loser? I just wanted to say thank you for everything dummy 😂😂😂 #bro #kingofbros #splx #stallion #wwe #nxt #ufc #danawhite pic.twitter.com/y5yH6POwKw
