Joe Riggs will not be one of the four contestants to compete in California’s first regulated four-man tournament scheduled for Nov. 16’s Strikeforce “Four Man Enter, One Man Survives” event at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.

Yahoo! Sports had reported that Riggs and Falaniko Vitale were the first two fighters selected to potentially pull double duty for one night in the cage. Riggs declined the slot, however, and will seek a single fight on the card instead..............

makes a lot of sense the toruney is gonna be on Nov 16th
He just last fought Sept 29. Thats only about a month and a half in between fights. Not a whole lot.
And considering he fought on the 21st of July
It woulda been 4 fights in less that four months (if he made the finals).
although he will probably miss out on a early title shot for this.

But now he is free to fight Cung Le in the main event if they want to make that fight, id pick Riggs to fight a smart fight and take him down and GnP him, but dunno whether they will make that fight now??? presumably they had an opponent already in mind for Le
