I think I chose Riggs.He's stronger than the competition that Diego has fought since winning tuf.I think he's too strong for Diego although Riggs is a bit inconsistent at times so this fight is kind of a pick em fight.

I think Riggs would win do to his size and strength. I don't think Sanchez

would be able to control him on the ground or submit him, but who knows.

I think Riggs would just plain overpower Sanchez, plus he has heavy hands.:devil:

Riggs has the tools to be a top guy-he's fast,he's heavey handed,he has some underated wrestling skills.He's just very inconsistent.

sanchex went down to 171 tho didnt he? i think this would be the first time we would see diego on the bad side of the ground and pound

yeah Diego went down to 170 ,but Riggs is supposed to drop back to 170 so this fight could happen.

unfortunately, Dirty Sanchez would win this fight. Riggs has no ground game and he showed that aginst Swick. Damn that Sanchez! I hate him!!! :angrrry:

if riggs got down to 170 and can maintain it. i think he will dominate every round. that guy is huge for a ww.

as much as i like riggs, id have to go with sanchez, if the fight was on the feet, riggs would easiley ko diego but diego will take him down and riggs doesnt have much of a ground game at all, he has very good standup but his ground game is not there at all.

I wouldn't say that Diegowould get KOed easily.Riggs is a way better striker ,but I don't know how easy it would be for him to KO Diego.I also wouldn't say he has poor ground game.He's won 42% of his fights by submission and has some good elbows off his back too-watch the Lytle fight.Why do you think he has poor ground game?B/C he lsot to the most dominant WW in mma?or b/c he got caught in guillotine(can't spell) by a guy who always jumps straight to guillotine anytime someone shoots on him or his stand up doesn't work?Swick has a really good guillotine just b/c you get caught in that doesn't mean you have poor ground game.Riggs is a lot stronger than Diego and the competition he's fought.

ya u might be right, but if the fight goes to the ground and u think riggs will win ud be insane, but ya riggs has the heaviest hands in ww devison hands down, and is strong but he could improve his ground game.
