Default Nick Diaz vs Joe Riggs 2 On Aug 15

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.

Yeah, this'll be another W for Diaz. I'm really enjoying his fights recently, mainly because I don't listen to much of his pre-fight talk, so I don't get annoyed by his antics!

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?

Well then brings up an interesting point: If you want him to win, then should you turn into a hater? I mean if you want to encourage him to be better, then shouldn't you become that which fuels him most?
