"I'm grappling Jeff Cobb at Submission Underground January 29. That's happening. I haven't agreed on prices or anything, but I imagine they're going to pay us," Riddle said. "They're doing it right. They have an Olympic Wrestler going against an MMA outcast and pro wrestling superstar. There's a lot going on."

Cobb is a former Lucha Underground Champion who performs on the show as Matanza. Cobb represented Guam at the 2004 Summer Olympics as a heavyweight freestyle wrestler.

Riddle fought in the UFC for years, amassing an 8-3 (2 NC) record before stepping away from the sport to focus on pro wrestling. He and Cobb teamed together to defeat the Young Bucks last weekend at PWG Mystery Vortex.

Submission Underground 3 takes place January 29, and will be streamed live by FloSports.
