Newly signed UFC welterweight Joe Riggs was involved in a firearm-related accident in his home on Monday, according to UFC officials. Riggs, 31, was reportedly cleaning a pistol when it accidentally went off. "While cleaning his permitted firearm, the gun discharged, injuring his hand and upper thigh. Riggs was transported to a nearby hospital in Arizona where is being treated by physicians," the UFC said in a statement. In November, Riggs won the MMA reality series Fight Master, leading to his return to UFC after eight years in other competitions.

In the vast majority of gun "accidents" an innocent bystander is injured or killed, not the stupid-careless gun-nut. And way to often the victim is a child, and the criminal goes unpunished.
