Nick Diaz vs. Joe Riggs II possible for August 15 Strikeforce card (updated)

Carson’s Corner host Bob Carson reported on his June 28 podcast that Nick Diaz will be fighting Joe Riggs on August 15 as part of the “Strikeforce: Carano vs. Santos” card taking place at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.

If true (and Carson seems damn sure of his source), this will be the second time Diaz and Riggs have met in the cage. They first fought back in Feb. 2006 at UFC 57, with Diaz losing a unanimous decision to “Diesel.”

Both fighters are coming off impressive victories at the June 6 Strikeforce card in St. Louis. Riggs won a unanimous decision over the ever tough Phil Baroni, and Diaz took out Scott Smith with a 3rd round rear naked choke.
