As reported on Fighters.com, former UFC welterweight Matt Riddle announced his retirement earlier in the week after he sustained an injury preparing for a bout in the season 9 Bellator welterweight tournament. When Riddle learned that Bellator would not be able to get him a fight until 2014, he announced that he was hanging up the gloves and going to get a real job. Riddle then went on to do several interviews bashing Bellator and the UFC, and the interviews eventually worked their way back to UFC President Dana White. As one can imagine, White didn’t have many nice things to say about Riddle and why he was cut from the UFC.
