Well, it may not be the “butter tooth brit” that Matt Riddle called out in the post fight press conference at UFC 149, but Riddle may be able to exact an amount of revenge against his enemy from the queen’s land when he takes on Che Mills. Unfortunately, for Riddle he will not be fighting on neutral ground since UFC on FUEL TV 7 takes place in London, England at the Wembly Arena.No main event is set yet, but the event should take place on February 16th.
This will be Matt Riddle’s third international fight which were all wins. Riddle was popped for marijuana usage in his win over Chris Clements, causing the win to be overturned. He returned as soon as possible and took a decision win over John Maguire, which promptly sent him back up to middleweight. Riddle should be 8-3 and riding his first three fight win streak since he started his career. That may not seem like a lot, but it is for someone that has fought all of his fights in the UFC.
Mills may not have the name power of Dan hardy, but he is easily just as dangerous. Since entering the octagon he has went 2-1 with TKO’s in all three fights. His wins all came in the first round with the fastest coming in forty seconds, but his loss came to none other than hot prospect Rory MacDonald in the second round. If he is able to finish Riddle, he will become only the second man to do so, and it will surely delight his home crowd if he did so.
