Nick wins this fight he's looked great recently, and Riggs has been in somewhat of a slump since his UFC departure.

I think Diaz handles business and beats Riggs fairly easily. Plus, is nobody else excited to see Roger Gracie in action again? Hopefully they'll give him a good opponent and we can really see what he's made of.

How the hell is Riggs going to be able to fight on this card?He broke both his hands during the Baroni fight a few weeks back.

he may have been blowing smoke there, but more important and shocked that nobody had an issue with this: NICK DIAZ VS JOE RIGGS ON THE FREAKIN UNDERCARD??!!??!!??!!

i'd say diaz is top 5 in strikeforce (easily) and he gets rewarded by not being on showtime?? makes no sense.

If you click the link, on the source it says its going to be on the main card. The poster of this info prolly just made an error. Cus there is no way this would be on the undercard.

This is a really exciting fight. Definitely makes this card for me. Diaz has been looking great lately and I'd be really surprised if Riggs pulled out another win.

I'm thinking Diaz by late sub again

I think Diaz has just gotten better since the first time they fought while Riggs appears to have stalled out. Riggs just better avoid Diaz post fight if he pulls it out, the last time didn't end well for him.

Totally agree.

Diaz is on another level to 'Diesel'. Great fight still though. These guys really hate each other!
