Nick Diaz vs. Joe Riggs II set for “Strikeforce: Carano vs. Cyborg”
June 29, 2009 by Cory Brady


Nick Diaz is expected to face off with an old rival in Joe Riggs on August 15 on the undercard of Strikeforce: Carano vs. Cyborg.

The event is scheduled to take place at the HP Pavillion in San Jose, California.

Sources within Strikeforce recently confirmed the bout according to a recent report on Carson’s Corner.

This bout between the two will be the second professional mixed martial arts match-up but their third fight as the two traded blows in the hospital following their first encounter.

Riggs won the previous match-up between the two at UFC 57 as he edged out Diaz in a hard fought unanimous decision victory.

Diaz last saw action on May 6 where he submitted Scott Smith with a rear naked choke in the third round of “Strikeforce: Lawler vs. Shields”,the same card where Riggs bested Phil Baroni by unanimous decision in his last outing.

I think Diaz will win this one too. Although Riggs looked pretty good against Baroni. I just wonder if Rigg's hands are healing up ok and if he will be able to get some good training in by then?? I can't remember if he broke 1 or both hands either?

I mean if you want to encourage him to be better, then shouldn't you become that which fuels him most?:Whistle:

Diaz needs to come back to the UFC. Riggs is not on his level anymore.

Your absolutely right. Its kind of a sucky match-up for talent considering Riggs hands. Diaz needs to fight UFC caliber fighters I agree with that.. The victory would be much sweeter..

Riggs all the way!!!

My hatred for all things Diaz is well documented on this board so I'll spare you all by not listing my reasons...

I'll cheer for ALMOST anybody who is fighting a Diaz. They're vile punks who are bad for the sport.

I hope somebody, someday beats them both into retirement.....


With all that being said......

They are both very good fighters and I would be shocked if Riggs pulls this off. I can respect their skills but not enough to look past that disgusting thug mentality.

War Diaz! :punch:

I have always been a fan of the Diaz brothers, especially Nate. There's something about Nate that I love. Nick has a rough spot with me since he knocked out Robbie, but I'm getting over it.

Joe Riggs is nowhere near the level of Nick Diaz as a fighter. I say Diaz takes this fight, any way he wants....
He needs to get back into the UFC, there are many interesting fights for him there. Depending on which weight class he would fight in. I wouldn't mind seeing him fight Anderson Silva for the title....Diaz takes that fight too.

:punch: WAR DIAZ!!!!!!!!:punch:

i was with you right up til the Anderson Silva part.

i was with you right up til the Anderson Silva part.That'd be a great fight, but I don't think Nick's stand-up is good enough to hang with Anderson, which means we'd be in danger of seeing another Thales fight. Well, except for the fact that Diaz won't wanna look like a [w]ussy & wouldn't fall on his arse all the time.

Riggs aint gonna win this fight let alone by a KO...:laugh: As far as him ever going up against Anderson Silva I don't think he would win the first few times...

Riggs has skills and if he can get himself inside Nicks bee stings he may put Diaz in trouble.

I don't see Riggs winning this fight though. Nick is better then him at everything.

Has it really been that long since Riggs fought? If he broke both hands, and it was recent, don't you think they'll bust again right away? Any doctors in the house???

Skills - Diaz
Power - Riggs

Hopefully a good show!
