Damn I was looking forward to this fight. Who should they get?
Joe Riggs has pulled out of his fight with Nick Diaz after suffering a bad reaction to an as of yet undisclosed drug. According to sources close to the fighter, Riggs will be recovering in the hospital for the next couple of weeks and therefore unable to fight Diaz. At this time it is unclear if Riggs' problem is physical or mental.

Nick Diaz however, will still be fighting on the card and it is expected that Strikeforce will be announcing Diaz's new opponent in the next couple of days.

I have a strange feeling about this one. Seems a little odd.

Lets see who they get to replace him and then lets start talking about how it was a pay off!!!!!! :)

He's probably been scarfing pain killers so he can train through his broken hands.

gomi rematch????
That would be awesome but I think Nick would be too much for him now. Sure he won the last fight but I think he's getting better while Gomi has been sort of declining.

Agreed. Nick is reaching his peak and Gomi is on the other side of the mountain already.

Why do you hate Robbie that much?

HA! Robbie would tear Diaz up this time. Especially after getting caught by Shields he's going to be super focused on his sub defense. not that it matters, because Nick doesn't try to sub anyone anymore anyways.
