Report: Riggs not cleared by CSAC; Fickett to step in to fight Luke Stewart

MMA Rated is reporting that Joe “Diesel” Riggs has not been cleared by the California State Athletic Commission to fight Luke Stewart on the Strikeforce show tomorrow evening in Sane Jose, CA. No reasons were given for Riggs not being cleared to fight but one would think that it has something to do with his back injury that occurred just over four months ago.

The report goes on to say that Drew Fickett, a natural welterweight, has been slated to step in on short notice to fight Stewart. Fickett had been slated to fight Jake Shields for the EliteXC welterweight title in July but that fight has since been cancelled.
