Matt Riddle On Dana White: "Good Businessman...Nice Person? I Don't Think So"

"This is the thing about Dana White, even when I met him [on The Ultimate Fighter], he wasn't like the greatest human being ever. He was my boss. When anybody asks, 'what's he like?' I say he's like a good businessman. He's good at business as you can tell. He's making millions of dollars and has a different sports car every day. He's very successful, but is he a good person, a nice person? I don't think so," Riddle said.

Riddle was a part of UFC's "The Ultimate Fighter 7" and even fought on the finale show where he fought fellow cast member Dante Rivera. Riddle would then spend five years with the UFC, amassing a 7-3 record with two no contests. He would move on to be a wrestler starting in 2014.

You can listen to the podcast in the video above. The segment with Riddle starts around 49:30 mark. "The List & Ya Boy" with Sean Ross Sapp and Fightful owner Jimmy Van is live on Fightful and on YouTube every Wednesday at 3 p.m. ET.
