I would like to see Diego win, but it is hard to tell just like any other fight. Diego is due to lose, but we really don't know. No matter how many people think they know how it will go down, we don't until the fight happens. Riggs hasn't looked good in the cage, but he does have the potential.

If Diego does lose though, will that put Riggs ahead of him for a title shot again? We all saw what happened last time he had a shot.

Did anyone watch the Karo vs Diego fight. Diegos stand up has improved greatly. He is a way better fighter now then when he beat Diaz. Riggs is very inconsistent and hasnt had an impressive victory for awhile. And Diaz getting a title shot probably wont ever happen. He won his last fight, but lost 3 before that. I dont even know why they still have him ranked in the top 10.

Sanchez should win but Riggs has a decent chance. This could be a very good fight. Both guys are very tough and have the never say die attitude. Should be some trash talk b4 this one too.

Hoping for a Riggs upset....

yeah but if he makes the mistake of standing with joe he could catch a bad one..joes always got a punchers chance with those hands..and if for some reason joe ends up on top he has good gnp..but diego can submit joe from his back..so it should be interesting..im a fan of both..and this is the kind of match up fans want to see imo..i would have rather seen diego fight bj..i think he deserves that fight..and i think it would really tell us where bj is at as well..dana is making diego earn his shot for some reason...i think he should have too but damn he gave nate quarry a shot at the title almost imediately..obviously that didnt work out very well for nate..but he got the shot..

Yah I think they gave nate the shot at the title because alot of the new TUF fans never really new who Franklin was, so they threw him in there with a guy that everyone thought was dominant, the Franklin showed them all what a real good fighter can do. haha also notice Nate hasnt fought since in the UFC.

As for Diego vs Riggs I think this fight is gonna be damn good, I dont think Riggs will be able to Ground and Pound Diego though, that guy is too damn slippery, He will probably end up getting Riggs back if he is not careful.
