Riggs shouldnt even be on there, he only has 1 victory at Welterweight. Diaz should be on there.


i really don't like nick diaz, and riggs hasn't been down as a welterweight very long. i see riggs as having more potential. he's only 23, probably the hardest hitter in the weight class, and if he gets tapped out again that quick he will learn some ground game

Hmm I dont think hes the hardest hitter, people seem to believe that because he used to be a heavyweight, he still has all that power. He himself has said that he isnt that strong, he just has explosive power.
Diaz is 22, he has great jiu jitsu and his striking is really good too. Did you watch his fight against Sanchez? Wow, great display of ground game and jiu jitsu.

Diaz definitely has more potential in my eyes and if there is a tournament, he should definitely be a contender.

I'm still trying to get a hold of Nick Diaz vs Robbie Lawler, it was an exciting fight and I want to see it again.

One thing I notice about UFC and pride fighting is, even the guy that looses in a match is really tuff and can pound a regular person into the ground :D  It takes heart and skill just to even compete in those matches. I'd never want to fight those guys, they would destroy me.

UFC Beyond The Glory
http://s11.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=16MDYKZI4WC1P1U87PFDD3CQS0

This was on FSN a few months back. Its kind of a documentary on how the UFC started out as a no rules competition, almost got shut down, and has turned into a regulated sport.

It also follows Rich Franklin on his career leading up to winning the Middleweight belt. :)

That sucks for St Pierre. He deserves the title shot.
