That was a long time ago, hes not the same guy now. He wont be contender again in a big show unless he really gets his shit together
I know, But Ron Waterman is an old washed up fighter and the fight was a disaster. looked like crap. Ricco is training with Tito Ortiz but still sucks, you probably havent seen the last Waterman fight but they both gassed from walking across the cage to face eachother. Ricco didnt stop him in any way either, he was to gassed to come out for the second round so it was ruled a tko while Ricco was finishing his round time snicker
dude it sucks man i loved ricco back then he was the shit ya know and the ufc screwed him over it sucks him in shape against sylvia now sylvia would get destroyed even in the first fight if ricco could have made it to 2nd or 3rd round he would have put on the punishment
rofl he was quoted saying "i may be fat but i still got skills " that made me laugh
