Aaron Riley is a retired lightweight fighter.

He most recently defeated Joe Brammer via unanimous decision. He was next set to face debuting Pat Audinwood but he was injured and replaced with Thiago Tavares. The injury must have been a serious one because Riley was out for a while. He was next rumored to face TUF 12 winner Jonathan Brookins.

Instead, Riley was inactive for around a year before accepting a fight against recent Ultimate Fighter winner Tony Ferguson. Ferguson broke Riley's jaw in the first round, and the fight was stopped by doctors between the first and second rounds.

After recovering, Riley was next set to face Cody McKenzie but he was apparently injured again and replaced by newcomer Marcus LeVesseur. Riley hasn't fought since the Ferguson fight in September 2011.

At the end of April 2013 after over a year of inactivity Riley signed to make his return against Justin Salas in a clear loser-leaves-town matchup. Salas defeated Riley via split decision after a war. Riley subsequently retired after sixteen years as a mixed martial artist.
