Matt Riddle vs Dan Cramer in the works for UFC 101 on August 8

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 7 cast clown, Matt Riddle (2-0), will collide with fellow TUF 7 teammate Dan Cramer (1-0) at UFC 101, tentatively scheduled for the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia, Pa., on August 8 according to FiveOuncesOfPain.

Riddle — who on the show joked that he still lived with his mother, didn’t have a driver’s license and much more — is perhaps best known for shattering Dan Simmler’s jaw in the opening of the show, which coach Quinton "Rampage" Jackson quipped was the "Knockout of the Century."

He was bounced out of the tournament-style show courtesy of a Tim Credeur armbar. He rebounded to score a unanimous decision win over Dante Rivera at the TUF 7 Finale back in June and followed that up by outpointing Steve Bruno at Fight Night 17 this past February.

Riddle now trains at Arizona Combat Sports alongside WEC Lightweight Champion Jamie Varner, CB Dolloway, Ryan Bader and others, proving that he is serious about improving his mixed martial arts skills.

His opponent, Cramer — also saw his run at the TUF 7 crown halted by a Tim Credeur submission.

The American Top Team (ATT) member was invited back to compete on the undercard of UFC 94: "St. Pierre vs. Penn 2" against Matt Arroyo in January 2009, winning a split decision and giving "No Regard" no job.

UFC 101 is expected to feature a major title fight, as well as a co main event between former UFC Heavyweight Champion Randy "The Natural" Couture as he locks horns with former UFC Interim Heavyweight Champion Antonio Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira. Additionally, Thiago Silva and ex-205-pound kingpin Forrest Griffin are also expected to hook ‘em up.
