Default Joe Riggs hospitalized

Forgive me if this is old news, but it's the first I'm hearing of it:


Strikeforce welterweight Joe Riggs is still hospitalized following a reaction to an undisclosed prescription medicine and is expected to be released next week.

Riggs' manager, Trevor Lally of Arizona Combat Sports, informed MMAWeekly.com of the news on Wednesday.

"Supposedly, they got it out of his system and they're switching medications for him, and he feels 100-percent better," said Lally.

Lally said Riggs wants to get back to action as soon as possible.

"He just had me call Bob (Cook) to see if there's a fight for him in the near future," he said. "They're going to clear him to start working out in about a week."

Riggs, a 26-year-old resident of Phoenix, Ariz., was rushed to the hospital in late July after suffering the reaction and was forced to pull out of a welterweight title bout against Nick Diaz at Strikeforce “Carano vs. Cyborg” on Aug. 15. He last appeared June 6 at “Shields vs. Lawler,” where he defeated Phil Baroni by unanimous decision.
