Welterweight Matt Riddle can lay claim to the unique distinction of making his professional debut in the Octagon, entering the eight-sided cage with a 0-0 record on the heels of a stint on TUF 7. However, another infamous label is attached to his name as well after testing positive for marijuana use twice in less than a year and recently getting cut from the roster as a result.
The next phase of the 27-year old’s career is officially set to start on July 19 when he faces Artenas Young at Legacy FC 21. The event will also host a pair of title-fights featuring William Bush vs. Larry Crowe (middleweight) and Angel Huerta vs. Matt Hobar/Nelson Salas (featherweight).
Riddle is 7-3 in his career with two No Contests that were originally wins before he failed his post-fight drug screenings for smoking pot. Comparably, Young holds an overall record of 9-5 with four TKOs to his credit.
