Extroverted welterweight Shonie Carter (Pictures) has withdrawn from a co-featured bout against Luke Stewart (Pictures) at Strikeforce "Melendez vs. Thomson" on June 27 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.

Strikeforce middleweight Joe Riggs (Pictures) has agreed to step into the vacant slot on a week's notice. The bout will be contested at a catch-weight of 178 pounds, confirmed Strikeforce representative Mike Afromowitz.

I thought Riggs would be out longer than that. That's going to be tough to get a win coming off a back injury like that and not to mention only a week's notice.
That shows that he just wants to fight.

Riggs has had a lot of bad luck...I would like to see him get back on track..

but Stewert seems like he is the real deal, and will probably take this fight.

Stewart sub rnd 1

The loss to Tiki really surprised me. This guy has a long way to go in MMA. Going with Riggs on this one easily (if he's healthy).

Riggs via KO. Early on. Maybe late in the 1st.
