Here’s the Riggs/Devela fight from Saturday’s Strikeforce event, which shows just how Riggs got his back effed up.
Says agent Ken Pavia in an e-mail to CagePotato:
[Joe] is having a procedure this week where they freeze a nerve. Disc is impinging on nerve now. Similar pain to a broken hip. He is ok though.
After the surgery, they’ll know more regarding how long Riggs will be out of action. We’ll keep you posted.
