...Nice take on Pedro. Man...nobody talks about him anymore. Marco Ruas's top student early on, Pedro was the man in the middle 90's. His leg kicks were astounding, not to mention his great striking ability. Pedro had a chin too. I remember a funny quote from Joe Rogan " If you took Phil Baroni's brain and put it in Pedro Rizzo's head, he would never lose"...lol

Since I saw that KO on Barnett, no one would want to throw a punch at that guy, or meet him in the first place :D.
