For some fighters, rebounding from a loss can prove to be a difficult proposition. For Joe Riggs (27-10 MMA), just getting a fight to put himself on that comeback trail has proved to be an even bigger challenge.

The Arizona native, who has seen his last five scheduled bouts fall apart, discussed his frustration about not being able to "provide for his family" while a recent in-studio guest of TAGG Radio (www.taggradio.com), the official radio partner of MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

Riggs most recent challenge was being denied licensure for a scheduled bout on the undercard of "Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Thomson" after admitting to taking the prescription pain medication Tramadol, which the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) classifies as a blood thinner.

I cant blame him even when you know you not quite good enough to get the title you still gotta work.

I feel for this guy. He's been through a rough time in life the last year. I hope he gets back in the ring soon and gets a win he deserves it.
