    i was always a fan of riggs and chris is a tough dude. them were some gnarly nasty knees he was piping up to allegedly break riggs forearm. not confirmed yet. but has chris gotten that much better. i think i may have wrote him off a little after souza demolished him. and man did he look huge. made diesel look like a 55er in there. i was impressed. just not sure if that was him being good or joe just being old and washed up. joe has been in like 50 fights or some shit professionally. thats a ton of miles.

    Riggs literally is like a senior citizen. Too much drugs (which he admits to), and too much wear & tear.

    Probably having no dick and having thrown it away factors into it as well.

    Camozzi has always been good but lacked the athleticism and explosiveness to really make him win big fights in impressive fashion. If he develops some more explosiveness he will do very well and would be a very tough fight for many in the division (even in his losses he didn't really get dominated aside from the Jacare losses)

    Riggs is very skilled but man he's been fighting for so long. Idk if a prime Riggs would beat Camozzi but I definitely think his body is not close to being at its peak

    Riggs should rematch Herb.

    Hard to believe Riggs is only 33 years old. Seems like he's been fighting forever.

    i actually agree with this. chris was always skilled just not athletic. he looked very athletic and explosive tonight. strength and conditioning training paying off for sure. hmmm. i want to see what this more completed chris can accomplish.

    i belive he had his first pro fight at 17. so he has fought a while. and was active in younger years and a lot of wars. under appreciated fighter IMO

    Riggs is 33, but he's had a lot of fights.

    Riggs should fight in Bellator's senior citizen league. Herb Dean vs. Bellator 156 Ali vs. Inoki 2: brain death, with Joe Riggs vs. Herb Dean 2 as co-main.

    Riggs is done, and he has been done for a long time. He has the mileage of 10 fighters and 3 drugged out rock stars. Please Riggs, hang 'em up. As a fan I was hoping he would get retired tonight for his own health.:(

    he left the senior show because he was the best senior. guess its time to go back lol. bellator was doing ok making a solid statement saying we are here to compete and stay a while only to take 20yr step back and offer the freakshow friday card.

    Joe Riggs has been through a lot and put himself through a lot so nothing but respect for the guy but like Dan Henderson they think they are 45 going on 25 but even HGH can't make that happen. Fighting for every single dollar they can make before the UFC makes them stop is the only reason I can think of especially for Hendo to keep taking damage. Their is a fine line between being tough and being stupid and those 2 are great examples of that.
