Fight Master top seed Joe Riggs apparently will retire if he can’t win the show after speaking with his wife.
“We both agreed: If I go on this show and it doesn’t pan out the way I know it can, if I don’t go on the show and win it, then I’m going to retire,” said Riggs to Sherdog. “You’ve got to find out if I retire or not. I might have to retire after this whole thing’s over or I might just keep going on.”
Riggs spent years in the UFC and Strikeforce with a failed title opportunity. He struggled with drug issues that have since been resolved and he’s 39-14.
On Wednesday’s Fight Master, Riggs took the decision over Nick Scallan to remain in the show.
