Earlier in the week we reported that newly re-signed UFC welterweight Joe Riggs had accidentally shot himself in the leg while cleaning his gun. Well now a video has emerged of his injury.

In a video obtained by TMZ shows a huge, horrific, gaping wound on his upper left thigh.

Riggs says he intends to be healed up in the next few months and hopes for a return to action for the end of year UFC card.

We wish him and speedy recovery and will report his progress as it improves.
