Chris Clements releases statement on Matt Riddle drug suspension | The MMA Blog | Blogs | theScore.com
Clements today released a statement to theScore.com via text message with his thoughts on the matter.
“Drugs are prohibited. So it should be a no contest. But as the same time I don’t see weed as performance enhancement.
“I fought injured and maybe if I smoked weed it would have killed the pain so I could of trained properly.
“Hard to fiter exact thoughts. I just found out about this.”
Clements fought Riddle with an injured shoulder that he recently had surgery on to repair. He is currently on the mend and hopes to returning in 2013 as a 155 pounder, as he plans to drop down from 170.
The loss stands on Clements’ record even though many other jurisdictions, such as California, will see a positive drug test resulting in a no contest.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
