Riggs Returns to UFC against Saunders in Phoenix

 
UFC veteran Joe "Diesel" Riggs will get a home game in his return to the Octagon on December 13, as he faces Ben "Killa B" Saunders at US Airways Center in his backyard of Phoenix, Arizona.

Stepping back into the Octagon for the first time in nearly eight years, the soon to be 32-year-old Riggs has gone 15-6 during his time outside of the UFC, a stretch that includes a current six-fight winning streak. In Saunders, Riggs will be facing another vet who came back to the UFC in 2014, with Florida's "Killa B" reintroducing himself with a Performance of the Night submission of Chris Heatherly in August.

Tickets go on sale for Fight Night Phoenix on Oct. 10.
