Riggs is getting better. I like that the UFC is giving him a long leash. They project guys like him and Diaz to be eventual champions so it's nice to see them getting better with each match, earning the distinction. They could've given up on them after their first few PPV losses but as time goes on I think people are starting to see their abilities improve.
Riggs certainly isn't at the same level as the top-5 WW guys (Hughes, St. Pierre, Penn, Sanchez, Parisian) right now. That division is very deep at the top. I think the UFC expects him to get there eventually, though. He's still pretty young.
I'd like to see him fight Josh Koscheck. That would be a good test for both of those guys.
