Is Dana ignoring steroids?

Former UFC welterweight Matt Riddle was released from the promotion last month after testing positive for marijuana for the second time in the past eight months.

Since then, he has had an ongoing dialogue with UFC president Dana White about the way the UFC conducts its business, and "Deep Waters" is not a fan.

In an interview with StephanieJoplin.com, Riddle responded to White's comments from last week that he was cut because he's a "f****** moron."

Even now, I donít have a dislike for Dana White or the UFC. But really, heís just a juice monkey whoís bald, who doesnít know sh** about business. He just yells the F word and expects things to be handed to him ... What should I do? Should I get angry? Find out where Danaís house is in Vegas? Ask him why the f**k did you fire me? Dana White should be thankful I am on medication!

Riddle was joking about the medication remark, though he does have a medical marijuana license in the state of Nevada.

The failed drug tests really put a damper on the new Drysdale BJJ student's career, having two recent victories overturned to no-contests.

While Riddle was able to keep his $65,000 "Submission of the Night" bonus for submitting Chris Clements with an arm triangle at UFC 149 in July, he was subsequently fined and suspended 90 days for his first failed drug test.

The 27-year-old, who is now signed with Legacy Fighting Championships, remains firm on his stance that marijuana is not a performance-enhancing drug.

Furthermore, he believes White should be more concerned about the number of UFC fighters using steroids.

Dana WhiteÖitís sad but heís uneducated to the sport and the industry. Heís calling me a moron for using my medicine when half his fighters are on steroids. Itís pretty offensive, but at the same time, I am looking at the source, and he canít help himself.

Riddle has already gone on the record stating he would probably not return to the UFC in the future since he doesn't like the direction the company is moving in, so his beef with White is likely to continue for a while.

They were at a much worse level in Pride. So there is nothing new about it. Comes with the territory.

Might be a better route than boxing. But don't quote me on that.

So putting on fat and weight means a guy is on roids? Couldn't have anything to do with a drastic lifestyle change going from average joe to living it up every night...

He works out a bit and is in ok/average shape but nothing to make a person think he is on roids. My guess is he just uses the standard supplements every other person that goes to the gym uses.

Really if Dana is on roids he is stupid. The negative health affects for no significant gain is retarded. Not to mention the legal liability.

Are steroids used by MMA artists, yes I believe they are but I also believe that they are trying to crack down on these things. Unfortunately some athletes know ways to bend the rules and unless the UFC enforces strict random testing etc they aren't going to catch these guys.

Roids don't mean chizzled.

Dana was a skinny little geek all his life. He was an aerobics instructor and I guess into boxing and promoting. He was skinny for first few years with UFC. All of a sudden he was big strong looking dude, whos voice completely changed. Now he is a round pile of marshmellow (well I think he has slimmed down since his surgery, he isn't as fat as he was last year)

Not saying he is on roids now. But I bet he was on them for a while at one point. He loves to gamble, he had an image as the UFC Prez/Face to look like an imposing figure, and has that what the hell attitude. You don't think he roided out for a few years?
