Can Pedro "The Rock" Rizzo Come back to UFC?

I love this guy but he chokes up against wrestlers but as i have checked his fight record he won against jeff monson in UAFC. If he comes back does he have what i takes to be a champ ?

meh.......................

The most solid advice I can give to anyone who fights BJ Penn is...do not motivate the guy. Lets face it, BJ although talented, is naturally lazy. Your job is to NOT convince him to step on that treadmill.

I wouldn't mind seeing him back, but i doubt he'd ever hold the title.

The guy needs to drop some weight too. 6' 1" and 240? He'll never have the gas tank needed to fight in current day UFC.

Demian Maia may be the Fred Astaire of jiu-jitsu, but it’s too bad Silva is the Gene Kelly of kicking everyone’s ass.

yup i notice that he is quite fat just by looking at his pictures but the reason why i like this guy because he isnt afraid to take a punch... pretty good chin i must say.

I'd like to see Andrei Arlovski avenge his loss to Rizzo.

He's from another era just like Chuck Liddell is. Now is the time for the youngins to take over, like jardine and brandon vera.

I don't know, I mean, it'd either be a really good fight or one of the worst fights of all-time. Their first fight was a tad dull, and seeing as AA has become the dancing Pedro Rizzo, I see being a dreadfully boring fight that goes to a decision.

As for the topic at hand, I like Pedro Rizzo, but I think he should remain the B-level HW king. He seems comfortable fighting on the smaller shows, moreso than fighting in the big leagues. He's a guy who could be a solid addition, but he's also the same guy who got whomped by Sergei, bored everyone against Ricco Rodriguez, and sucked in many matches.
