    Default UFC vet, recent Bellator signee Matthew Riddle announces retirement

    Matthew Riddle, a longtime UFC fighter who recently signed with Bellator MMA, announced his retirement on Monday night.

    Riddle (7-3 MMA, 0-0 BFC) was slated to fight Luis Melo (29-11 MMA, 0-0 BFC) next week at Bellator 100, a Sept. 20 event that features the opening round of a Season 9 welterweight tournament.

    However, according to Riddle, he cracked a rib and has decided to call it quits due to financial reasons.

    As he wrote on Twitter: I'm retiring from MMA today, I cracked my rib and I can't fight sept 20th @BellatorMMA can't give me a fight this year so I can't afford it!"

    Bellator officials haven't formally announced the scratch or a replacement.

    I hope he can still afford his "medicine."

    All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.

    I didn't mind the guy, sucks to see him retire before he has to due to financial reasons.. Good luck Riddle.
    Fedor Emelianenko is the Greatest P4P MMA fighter to ever walk the earth, hands down.

    He was really starting to put his skills together at the end there. Shame he couldn't pull the rest of it together.
