Post-UFC Fight Night 83: On the Chopping Block

Daniel SarafianThis past Sunday certainly was “Funday” with UFC Fight Night 83 delivering an evening of exciting action, 13-bouts in total, seven of which resulted in finishes. Now with the entertaining night of scraps in our rear-view, let’s take a look at which of the evenings competitors we may no longer see in action inside the Octagon… ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK Joe Riggs Riggs is now 1-3 in his second stint with the promotion, with his lone victory being a disqualification against Ron Stallings. He has looked old and awful in each and every outing inside the Octagon and I think there is a good chance he receieves his walking papers following this past Sunday night’s first round TKO loss to Chris Camozzi at UFC Fight Night 83 in Pittsburgh. Riggs definitely does not look like he belongs in the UFC, or any promotion for that matter. I think it makes sense for the UFC to release him, and even more sense for him to hang up the gloves. Daniel Sarafian Sarafian is now 2-4 in the UFC and 1-3 in his last four outings, so I think there is a fair chance that he will be receiving a pink slip following this past Sunday night’s first round knockout loss to Oluwale Bamgbose on the preliminar card for UFC Fight Night 83 in Pittsburgh. I think it is 50/50 whether the promotion decides to part ways with the Armenian-Brazilian fighter. Personally, I would like to see him get another shot, as two of his defeats have come by split decision and he has always been in a fun fight, win or lose.
