    Big fan of the Diesel and would love to wish him well in his fight. He is fighting Chris Camozzi who has been in the UFC for some time and was the Prize FC champion. Anyway, I hope Riggs does well, its far fetched to see him become a champion but I still want him to do well and get on a winning streak.

    So he didn't cut his dick off & throw it away?

    Good match up tbh. Neither guy will be fighting for the belt any time in the future, but both guys are quite experienced. Guessing this is an undercard bout for tv?

    He's most likely going to lose.

    Or maybe he did and it makes the weight cut a little bit easier.

    Always liked Diesel for some reason. He had those brutal ground and pound bombs ..

    The only thing interesting about Riggs in the UFC is if he rematches Nick Diaz in the ring and then in the hospital afterward.

    He was 30 in the reality show, he looked 50. Poor guy has had way too many fights.

    I know what you mean, I loved his fight with Chris Lytle, he showed amazing Ground and pound and in the Nick Diaz fight, he showed really good boxing combos even though he was gassed.

    Another good fight was his fight with Jason Von Flue, he threw few punches, clinched up and Karo Parsiyan style Judo throwed Jason and ended up subbing him. It was the type of fight that showed ALL aspect of MMA from striking to clinch to throw to submission.

    Not bad, i'm ok with them being on early main card. Joe has a lot of years in the sport. It's not like he's undeserving of some main card time once in a while.

    You haven't heard? He put his little friend on the line and predicted that there's no way McGregor would beat Aldo. Haven't heard much from him since the fight happened, though. I hope he wins tonight, some weird shit's happened to him in his last few fights.

    Honestly I thought the elbow he used to finish lytle was the most impressive part of the fight for him. Real crafty of him pushing the head away like that knowing lytle would resist trying to get his head back to the center of Riggs chest, and let lytles own resistance feed into the power of him following immediately with the elbow that sliced him wide open.

    Oh yeah, I forgot about the elbow! I remember him standing up and just throwing punches full throttle at Chris. It was pretty loud and it got a pretty big reaction. Although it was a cut stoppage, Lytle was pretty dazed afterwards.
