At full speed it looked like Riggs was down but in the replay he's clearly up and getting ready to take Diego down but Diego gets to him too quickly

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

Well to Riggs' credit, he got caught by a great punch when he threw a pretty good one of his own...he punched Diego right in the eye and if he didn't get KO'd Sanchez was in trouble.

Actually...you know what - Riggs should have kept his knee on the mat (not that it would have necessarily would have stopped Diego). If Diego hadn't landed that knee, he would have lost via that shot in the eye. I heard him say he couldn't see out of it at all, and he grabbed it immediatley after KO'ing Riggs.

Credit To Señor Sanchez though, he got that all-important W on his record, and at the end of the day, that's really all that matters baby.

That was a fight bewtween two opposites. Diego who I think is the toughest mentally in MMA and Riggs who can't get his mind right.

I swear some of the under card fights I've seen have looked like that.

I know Riggs got off a cross that was close to the left side of Diego's head but I thought it was Big John that was the one that poked Diego in the eye when he was getting him off of Riggs.. ??

Yeah I think you're right Oil, because the punch riggs landed didn't look like any fingers were astray.

a "downed oponent" must have all four points touching the ground. Riggs had his feet and perhaps 1 hand, but that was all. he was on his way up when diego's kneed landed... right into his face...

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it
