    The problem isn't so much with his skills as his decision making in the fights. He basically walked into Salaverry's upkick when they fought. He just get too anxious in his fights and make bad decisions.

    I don't think his ground is that bad where it is right now.

    I'd take Riggs in this fight. I like him as the new gatekeeper at 170

    Nick Diaz was sort of like the old gatekeeper.They had him fight Lawler right before Lawler got a shot at the MW title,they had him fight Sherk and now Sherk is dropping to LW to get a title shot,they had him fight Riggs right before Riggs fought Swick in fight that had a lot on the line as far as the open wide UFC MW division,they had him fight Karo and after that Karo was the #1 contender.Diaz was a good gatekeeper.

    Riggs annoys me. He couldnt even make weight for a title shot. If this fight happens, it would seem like the UFC is feeding him a fighter so they wouldnt have to toss him after losing 2 straight.
