Riggs was on his feet by the time Sanchez landed the knee sandwich.

It wasnt an illegal knee. In the replay it showed when he hit him Joe was not any a knee both his feet were on the ground.

I'm pretty sure its only illegal in the four point position, Riggs was going to wrap his hands around Diego when the Knee landed.



The hard work of one, does more than the prayers of millions.

If you watch the replay it cleary shows Riggs up on both feet with his head down getting ready for a takedown but Diego cathes him with a great knee, did you see how fast Diego got all over Riggs...Freakin' crazy ass speed on that kid.

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

yeah thats what i thought, but yeah that kid is a stud he will deffinetly be a handful for gsp when the match finally happens. The ufc is gonna be so sick in 2007 with the addition of rampage and cro cop plus all the young guns like sanchez, swick, kos just to name a few it will be one bad ass year for mma fans!!

That division is just sick, tons of talent and then you have a few other fighters who could go up or down in their weight class and make the division even crazier.
