    Jeremiah Riggs Picked for TUF 7

    Jeremiah Riggs Picked for “The Ultimate Fighter 7″ Cast
    Posted by MMA Junkie on January 28, 2008 at 4:28 pm ET

    Jeremiah RiggsMississippi-based fighter Jeremiah Riggs (1-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) is headed to Las Vegas for the upcoming seventh season of “The Ultimate Fighter.“

    A source close to the fighter today told MMAjunkie.com (UFC News & Rumors - MMA News - UFC Fighters - UFC Event Recaps and Previews - MMAjunkie.com) that Riggs has been chosen for the cast.

    “The Ultimate Fighter 7,” which debuts April 2 on Spike TV, features UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson and season-one winner Forrest Griffin as coaches. The show will feature 16 middleweight fighters vying for a UFC contract.

    Riggs, a 25-year-old former sheriff’s deputy, posted a 4-2 amateur record for the Alabama-based Southern Fighting Alliance and other Southeast-based fight organizations. He then made his professional debut this past September, earning a submission victory (via strikes) over Craig Sjoerdsma at an Ultimate Cage Fighting event in Louisiana.

    Although he’s had little professional experience, Riggs has sought out some quality training. A source close to Riggs told us that the fighter recently spent some time in California training with Strikeforce world middleweight champ Frank Shamrock. Riggs was set to become part of the San Jose Razorclaws — an International Fight League team coached by Shamrock — but after never winning a team matchup, the IFL disbanded the team after the 2007 fight season.

    As for his personality, “Jeremiah’s just a freakin’ crazy country boy,” we’re told.

    Sadollah joins a growing list of other cast members that MMAjunkie.com has recently revealed. The full list now includes:

    * Matt Brown (7-6 MMA, 0-0 UFC)
    * Steve Byrnes (6-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC)
    * C.B. Dollaway (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC)
    * Prince Mclean (4-5 MMA, 0-0 UFC)
    * Jeremiah Riggs (1-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC)
    * Amir Sadollah (0-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC)
    * Luke Zachrich (7-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC)
    Again, have no clue wh this is. Hopefully there is a couple studs in the cast.
