MMAWeekly:

“I’d of beat the (expletive) out of him….It would have been done. No Kimbo. I would have rubbed him out and saved everyone the headaches.”

“Here’s the one good thing about the UFC — and this is no knock to Strikeforce, they’re an unbelievable organization, they treat people great — you know within the minute when you’re going out to fight and it’s cut and dry….You don’t get fights pulled from you. The fighters might change, but the UFC will find you a replacement, or they’ll pay you your money. So that’s a huge thing.”

Joe Riggs takes on Kazuo Misaki at Strikeforce “At The Playboy Mansion 2″ this Saturday Sept 20 from the infamous Playboy Mansion in Beverly Hills, CA.

    I'm tired of all these guys jumping on Kimbo. Yeah he sucks, even at stand up and he's not even that exciting, but it's not his fault he's famous. Any fighter that comes in the ring w/ a colored mohawk or a tattoo shirt or some crazy nickname is also trying to get pub and Kimbo just happened to get lucky at the right time…and the dude that beat him on YouTube got an offer from UFC too (his police dept nixed it and wouldn't let him fight) so all this high and mighty crap is just that.

    I wish he wasn't in the sport or that he'd get 10 fights under his belt before we see him again, but as long as he's really giving it a shot, I say lay off him. He's not going to single handedly take the sport down the tubes. All these veteran guys saying they'll kick his ass is like Michael Jordan dunking on dudes that come to his fantasy camp.

    I kind of want to see it. Riggs isn't the best striker, but argueably a better striker than Kimbo has faced. I think it would be interesting.

    i agree with mbd. i've never heard kimbo talk shit. he just responds to fighters that try to bash on him. riggs knows he'll never fight kimbo so it's an easy way to get in the news to promote his upcoming fight.

    It's not Kimbo's fault but EliteXC shouldn't give him main event status when he's not a top fighter. I don't blame Kimbo for taking their offer.

    OMG people you dont get it. People want to see Kimbo fight. EliteXc isnt trying to get the mardcore MMA fans to watch b/c most of will watch free MMA no matter what. They are trying to get the new comers and people who have never seen the sport before. Kimbo is a big black guy with a cool household nickname known for street fighting that sounds a lot better then some guy nobody has heard of in a main event. Im not saying he is great but he isnt horrible. His stand up is decent and his ground game is only going to get better. I just wish Joe wouldnt call people out especially when he hasnt been winning. Wasnt his last fight in the UFC a KO loss to Diego? Diego isnt close to being as good of a striker as Kimbo with way less power so I really dont thik Riggs would win but hey never know till we see it right.

    i sure hope jis ground game keeps getting better cause it definetly can't get any worse. i understand why riggs is pissed. i have met the guy when i was in cali and drank a beer with him. the guy lives in his friends garage and sleeps in a hammick. im sure it really hurts him to know how much he's put into this sport and to see a nobody like kimbo making all this money beating bums.
