Like that one dude I think jimmyterrell said that stood out to me. He's got bad live instincts in a fight. He took that high kick, didn't get rocked or anything but was caught and off balance and he seemingly panicked and just shot straight in. There's a lot of instances like this with Riggs when he fights, but like Rogan said on commentary and anyone who's seen him in the smaller promotions where there's less pressure and such he's been a dominant dude. He hasn't really shown in the UFC what he's capable of. Fighting Class A competition everytime out and shifting to a new weight class for each fight can't help, but I think the other stuff I mentioned is the bigger part of the problem.
I'd agree he's been extremely inconsistant at times ,but i think some of that comes with age he's still young and still improving and i think one day he's going to get everything together and have some pretty good success.
