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.
- 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.
