The Riddler

This is an invitation for the bloody elbow world to give me an education - on Matt Riddle.

Please tell me what he has to offer.



Background:

  • I have not seen the series of TUF on which he featured
  • I have only seen a couple of his fights
  • The first fight of his I saw was against Sean Pierson. This fight seems to divide people, claiming either it was ace, or quite terrible. I lean toward the latter.


I'm not here to "bash" Mr. Riddle or call for his departure or anything like that - I am pleading ignorance.


From what I've seen, he appears very athletic but other than that, where do his skills lie?

In what area of the game is he a threat and a prospect?


Is he "well-rounded", in the sense that he is ok in all areas but not superb in any? Watching him fight he doesn’t seem to excel in a particular area. Maybe it’s just me – I’m no expert.


However, he is having a successful run with six wins in the UFC, so there must be something to him - please tell me what it is.
