Crippled fighter out, crippled fighter in

Goddamn does it suck to be Shonie Carter. First his woman runs off with his kids, then the UFC releases him for talking smack, and now he’s off next weekend’s Strikeforce card with a painful sounding “shattered knuckle”:

Extroverted welterweight Shonie Carter (Pictures) has withdrawn from a co-featured bout against Luke Stewart (Pictures) at Strikeforce “Melendez vs. Thomson” on June 27 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.

Strikeforce middleweight Joe Riggs (Pictures) has agreed to step into the vacant slot on a week’s notice. The bout will be contested at a catch-weight of 178 pounds, confirmed Strikeforce representative Mike Afromowitz.

The last time we saw Riggs, he was being stretchered out of the ring because of a re-occuring back injury. And while Joe has apparently had ‘spinal cord surgery’ to fix the issue, I don’t think that’s the kind of issue that ever really goes away when you’re doing stuff like wrestling, grappling, and getting the shit kicked out of you.

Anyone wanna bet a fiver on Riggs’ backbone exploding and rolling up like a shitty window blind during his fight?

    agh no Shonie? means No golden shiny short shorts and tropical flower shorts on Strikeforce?

    damn !

    Talking about Riggs, not sure catchweight 178 is good for him or not. he can have reach advantage to that Tatoo guy but has to cut 7lbs than usual…

    when was that terrible TKO by hip toss… last Feb in seattle? hope he is ok now. but he works hard too much.

    also have to admit that Tatoo guy Luke Stewart is brave. catchweight and accepts to fight bigger fighter. And its Joe Diesel Riggs ! Almost has 7times fights experiences than him.

    Riggs overrated. Cutting tremendous amount of weight is his only advantage. So he’s usually much larger and stronger than his oppenents. But he should win this if his back doesnt implode.
