Hey Joe Riggs, why are you crapping & pissing in your pants on ‘Fight Master’?

Posted: July 22, 2013 in Commentary/Opinion

joeriggsBellator’s reality based series, Fight Master, has been a pleasant surprise—and not a rip-off of UFC’s The Ultimate Fighter, as many fans expected. Instead, each fighter competes without the judges being able to see them. If the coach likes what he hears, he presses a button and his chair spins around, revealing the fighter. Randy Couture wears a cowboy hat and speaks in a southern drawl; Frank Shamrock wears a fur coat and giant sunglasses while stroking a cat; and Greg Jackson wears a blond wig with enormous cleavage.

Wait…That’s not right. But whatever…take my word for it; it’s different than TUF.

Anyway, most fighters are unknown, up-and-coming fighters. However, one long time vet made his way to the show—former Silver Spoons child star UFC and Strikeforce fighter Ricky Schroeder Joe “Diesel” Riggs. With over 50 pro fights, Riggs has been around the block.

Last week, Riggs shared a disgusting behind-the-scenes story that will probably wind up on the cutting room floor. This is amazingly good and horrifically bad at the same time…

“I’d come from cutting weight, and I take my shorts off—my underwear off—and they’re all stained with shit, probably, and whatever; and I threw them in Tim Welsh’s face.” Well this has started off nicely hasn’t it?

“It was a perfect shot to the lips. And he peels them off his face, and he wheels them at me, and it hits the camera guy right in the lips. And he went down, talking about throwing up, because they were like saturated with sweat, piss and shit. I was cutting weight, so I was sitting there like pissing myself. It was bad.”

Jesus, Riggs! I have a few questions. First and foremost, since when is cutting weight an excuse to sit in your own shit and urine? Is this a part of training I’ve somehow missed? Needless to say, this story is the absolute best/worst thing I’ve heard all day. Thank you Joe Riggs.
