The Fight Network has issued an update in regard to a story it had reported last week in which Joe Riggs was quoted as saying he’s likely to be fighting for the WEC in October against Jason Miller.
According to Miller, he knows nothing about a potential fight against “The Diesel.”
“I re-affirm what I told you [The Fight Network] Friday,” said Miller (19-5). “I know nothing about a fight with Riggs, and to say I wouldn’t confirm the fight was misleading. I guess I’m honored to be the one that Riggs has decided to call out, but I have absolutely not been contacted regarding a fight against him.”
A potential match between Miller and Riggs piqued my interest, so I made a few calls and apparently the WEC also knows nothing about a match between the two. My guess is that maybe Riggs is freelancing a bit and trying to get a match booked for October. If that’s the case, I like where he’s going.
