Matthew Riddle Released from UFC for Marijuana

Seven months after failing a drug test for marijuana at UFC 149, Matthew Riddle appeared to be back on track as he stepped into the cage at UFC on Fuel 7. As it turns out, he apparently didn't learn from his mistake as a second failed drug test has now caused the UFC to release this very entertaining fighter.
Riddle himself spoke with BJPenn.com Radio on Wednesday night following his release and seemed baffled about the promotion's decision to release him.

Riddle's second failed drug test for marijuana has been the source of much controversy within the MMA community over the past few days, bringing questions to light that have been debated before, but rarely resulted in a fighter losing his or her job.
