    Default Riggs injured, Fight Master finale delayed inefinitely

    http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...d-inefinitely/

    Bellator's Fight Master reality television debut season was expected to close with a fight between finalists Joe Riggs and Mike Bronzouli on Saturday. However, it was announced earlier today that Riggs suffered suffered a partial orbital bone fracture and retina detachment in training three weeks ago, and the bout will be postponed until he recovers.

    “My sparring partner threw a high kick and I blocked it, but his toe went through my head gear,” said Riggs. “I was in horrible pain and they had to pry my eye open to see the damage.”

    Riggs underwent a four-hour surgery for the injury that night, he said, and spent four days recovering in an Arizona hospital. Riggs said the surgery was successful and his physician has already cleared him to train again.

    “I can be ready in October or Nov. 2, if they need me,” said Riggs.

    Kind of surprised this wasn't going to be on the PPV anyway.

    Damn. I enjoyed the season, wasn't amazing but ok. And I'm intrigued to see Riggs back in the game. I'll admit that I don't see him keeping it together to win a title, but it'd be nice to be wrong about that.

    I call bullshit. Bellator is just replacing him with whoever they wanted to get to the finals.

    Very odd indeed. Broken orbital bone from a blocked headkick while wearing headgear?

    Where did you get that picture of me and the purr monster?

    Seriously though, I was half joking but would you really put it past them?

    Did anyone else find listening to Greg Jackson while he cornered his guys extremely annoying?

    Yes. We don't normally hear it with the commentators and crowd noise. But I bet his fighters love it.
