Riggs is no Karo but he is one of those guys with heavy hands who may end up with a lucky shot. Sanchez is an extremely confident guy and probably believes that he can run through Riggs (not saying it can't happen), but Riggs is a big guy. Riggs has skills but he is inconsistent. If Riggs don't put hands on Diego quickly, Sanchez will pressure Riggs until he gasses like Karo did in the last fight (if Sanchez comes in conditioned, not like he did against Alessio). Hope it turns out to be a good fight. Gotta go with Sanchez by ko.

I dont know. Riggs is use to cutting a ton of weight to get to 170. Last fight he had to cut 5 lbs. Not bad and it makes a huge difference.

I think Riggs will be too strong for Diego.

Not to mention he's training with MFS now I beleive so were talking about a new & improved Riggs.

Plus he's from Phx like me.

Riggs does have heavy hands but he isnt a very smart fighter. Even if he gets on top of Diego I can see him submitting Riggs as soon as he makes a mistake. He is alot bigger than Diego but Diego is way faster, he has very good ground control and as I seen in the Karo fight when he is on his back he can turn it around very quickly. I pick Diego taking this one.

Riggs has yet to have consecutive wins in the UFC.I could see him pulling off the upset ,but he's so inconsistant it's hard to bet on him.
