The California State Athletic Commission has dropped Joe “Diesel” Riggs from his fight with Luke Stewart after he disclosed to the commission that he had taken a prescribed narcotic pain killer three days earlier. MMA veteran Drew Fickett has been called up to replace him and fight Stewart on short notice at “Strikeforce Melendez vs. Thomson”, tonight from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, CA. Here’s a video of Ken Pavia, Riggs Agent explaining the situation.

    this guy is an idiot in every interview i see him in. why did he decide to take this prescription drug?….probably for the same reason he went to the doctor to get it in the first place dumb ass.
