    Is it just me or has anyone else ever noticed the guy has never caught a break? Between a bunch of freak injuries to devastating losses to personal tragedies it's always appeared to me that life has it out for the poor guy also known as "diesel" . Worst luck in mma.

    The neck injury off of a take down on Saunders a couple years back was pretty indicative of what life has been serving him up for the past 34 years or so. That GnP, though...

    Didnt he get a title shot off of a loss and missed weight for it?

    They wanted Riggs to be a star so bad.

    Yeah poor guy just couldn't ever pull it off. Shame actually cause he probably works his ass off in training.

    Wasn't Riggs a sparring partner with Rich Franklin back when he was champ? I heard Riggs used to bust Franklin up in sparring.
