Thanks a lot for that. I've wondered about Rico. Talk about wasted potential. That guy was a seriously good fighter. when he fought Nog in pride he out bjj'd the heavy weight bjj king. The only reason he lost that decision was because they were in pride, he came from the ufc and Dana was in the audience.
I've gotta wonder about 205 though. the last time I saw him no way could he make 265. Not in a month. If he comes in to a legit fight at 205 I will be amazed. Maybe he can do it but it would take a whole new mentality for him. The man has amazing talent. People think Roy Nelson is good for a fat guy, Rico would kill that guy in a fight or a belly flop contest.For all his talent I give him credit but, I will say this. Of all the fighters I have ever met (a few) he was hands down far and away the BIGGEST PRICK. The most obnoxious egotistical ass you could imagine around women.
5 minutes in a room with him and you wish you had brought your gun ('cause there's no way you're kicking his ass).
That said, if he can make 205 he may not be the same person I met (maybe it was the drugs). I will definitely be watching for him now. Thanks again.
