Two more UFC fighters recently tested positive for banned substances. |
Following July's UFC 149 event, welterweight Matt Riddle was flagged for marijuana while featherweight Francisco Rivera tested positive for an undisclosed over-the-counter stimulant, MMAjunkie.com (UFC blog for UFC news, UFC rumors, fighter interviews and event previews/recaps | MMAjunkie.com) has learned from multiple sources close to the event.
Both fighters were suspended for 90 days retroactive to the July 21 event, which makes them eligible to fight on Friday. The results of their respective bouts were not changed.
According to sources close to the competitors, both fighters declined to appeal their punishments and apologized for their actions.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
