Joe Riggs

MMA Fighter



What is your favorite part about being an MMA fighter?

I like being home with my kids and wife.  Most people have a 9 to 5 job.  I get to be there for my family.  I'm blessed that way.


What advice do you have for an aspiring MMA fighter?

You have to be careful who you let into your life.  There are a lot of bad people out there who want to get close to you and help you make bad decisions and take your money.  Early on, I had some bad agents.


If you were not a fighter, what would you be?

I'd probably be a cop.  I was intrigued by it.  I had a great time on a ride along.  I couldn't imagine sitting at a desk.  So if I didn't fight, I would be a police officer.


Who were your heroes growing up?

Randy Couture.  I went to a wrestling camp when I was 12 years old.  When I was 17, I got to train with him for the first time.  That was really cool.


What was your favorite subject in school?

My favorite subject in school was science.  I liked Astronomy.  I was in a science club.


If you had the choice, who would you like to fight?

I want to fight Nick Diaz.  That is the fight that I want really bad.
