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.

    You know that could be marketing genius... with Diaz being on that show, there's got to be serious drama. Makes for good TV.

    Although I don't think Diesel deserves that.

    I think Joe should take more time in between bouts to work more with the Miletich camp. It was pretty obvious that he improved in his win against Diaz. He got caught against Swick, but he's still very young and can learn a lot and get back into the top tier of the UFC within the next year or so. He is a hell of a striker and shows the ability to learn. He just needs the time to focus on his game.
