It’s no secret that Riddle left the UFC under bad terms after testing positive for marijuana twice in 6 months, but according to reports and rumors Bellator is looking to fill a slot in a welterweight tournament left open by Paul Daley who can’t get into the country because of legal trouble of his own in England.
