Mike Tyson Not Impressed By Ricco Rodriguez’s Performance

Sad news coming out of Las Vegas today: Apparently, former UFC heavyweight champ/Celebrity Rehab star Ricco Rodriguez competed in a pro boxing match last night at the Las Vegas Hilton, losing a slow-paced four-round decision to a gentleman named Chad Davis. Punishing the scales at 270 pounds, Rodriguez was heckled by boxing legend/rapist Mike Tyson, who was sitting ringside, and who had clearly paid to see blood:

“Are you going to throw some punches or what?” he asked in the first round.

Ricco’s opponent, Chad Davis, from Phoenix, taunted the former UFC champ at the end of the first with a little hip gyration maneuver.

“Come on,” Tyson implored. “Try to hurt each other.”

Rodriguez has one other boxing match under his belt — an October 2006 KO of Brandon Baker — while Davis came into the fight with an 0-1 record (thanks boxrec.com!). The match took place just two weeks after Rodriguez’s last MMA bout, a submission win over Chris Guillen at an Ultimate Combat Experience event.

Rapist?

WTF is wrong with you youngsters .. No bitch/female comes to your hotel room at 2 am to borrow a fucking cup of sugar...

Word to the wise.. if a woman calls you or knocks on your door at 2 am.. it is time to fuck..

Period.

Wow, I'm not sure who's worse; The guy who wrote the article, or the one who wrote the first comment ("OMG, OMG, He called Tyson a rapist! Zing!!! What a clever joke! I cannot stop laughing!")

2. "Tyson, who had clearly paid to see blood" = Lame on so many levels....

C. Ricco Rodriguez is a deplorable piece of shit---just ask his girlfriend.

mike tyson was a strait up killer in his day. best heavyweight boxer ever imo. he came out and took peoples hearts from the opening bell. ricco rodriguez is a much better fighter, but could never ever ever come close to what mike knows as boxing. ricco gets some more experience and makes a buck. ricco is a very talented fighter. just not boxer.

ok,
Terry Martin, and Andrei Arlovski boxing.. that makes sense.. because the best part of their game is stand up..

but, Rodriguez's best aspect is ground game...sooo... why box??

It's sad to see a guy with so much talent, who was once one of the most feared fighters on the planet, completely unable to control his addictions (and I'm including food and lazy-boy chairs here).

Where were your punches in your last fight, Tyson? oh, that's right, you said you were just doing it for the money and your heart wasn't in it. Fag

Wee it's good to hear that Ricco won his last MMA bout at least. Can't you just hear the ghey Elmer Fud voice when you simply see words from Tyson. I absolutely love your description of Tyson. I cannot stop laughing.
