10:32 AM ET 10.14 | After battling through a bout of "severe depression," Joe Riggs (37-14) feels like a different person as he starts to mount another winning streak. After a decade in the business, Riggs suffered his first ever three fight losing streak in 2011. "At the same time, I didn't have any means to make money, so I'd take fights when I wasn't ready," said Riggs on MMA Junkie. That three fight losing streak is still clear the head of Riggs. "I'd never lost more than one in my life in a row," said Riggs. "I was going down a bad path and didn't really care about my career."

Just waiting for the day that retired UFC fighters sue UFC for failing to disclose that repeated blows to the head could be harmful .

Joe Riggs is not much of a fighter, time to move and find something else to do with your life. Fighting is not for you Joe.
