Diaz Riggs
“I never expected someone to hit me in the hospital, especially two prize fighters in the hospital like that. Even when we were jawing back and forth, it didn’t cross my mind. Then he crossed the line and we started going at it.”

“Something is wrong with him. He’s like a Neanderthal. Something is off with him.”

“Usually, I don’t fight people I have beaten. Nick Diaz, I’d just fight again. … I’d whoop his ass again. He’s not a smooth, polished boxer like me. He has no footwork. He’s a tough guy, he comes forward and throws a lot of punches. He has good submissions. But he’s not as good of a boxer as I am.”

In their first encounter Joe Riggs walked away with the nod, now he’s open for a rematch.
