Video: Ricco Rodriguez (Briefly) Fought Glover Texeira in Brazil Last Night

(Video courtesy of YouTube/CombateMMA)

Ricco Rodriguez fought last night in Brazil against Glover Texeira and unfortunately it was over in less time than it took for “Suave” to board the plane for his 10.5 hour flight to Duque de Caxias.

Ricco was doing well until he was tagged by a headkick by the dangerous light heavyweight who is rumored to be UFC-bound, then it was all downhill from there.

Texeira, who used to train at “The Pit” with John Hackleman and Chuck Liddell before visa issues left him unable to travel abroad from Brazil, has been on the UFC’s radar for a while. I spoke to UFC VP of business development Chuck Liddell last summer and he mentioned that Glover would likely be making waves in the Octagon within the year if all went well and it looks like he was only a few months off in his prediction.

Wow. Gassing after 1 minute. That must have been a really good training camp for Ricco.

I thought you were talking about Glover. He put his hands on his head after the finish like he was totally gassed.

2 comments. I swear I heard the announcer call Ricco "spongey" and The video isn't that clear so it's hard to see but, how many times did Glover hit Ricco in the back of the head when going for the finish.

What up Rampage?

Btw, it's a nice feel with the cage outside, makes it feel more like a "real fight".

Edit: Ricco was doing well until the 3:47 mark of the opening frame when he proceeded to ring his own bell by faceplanting on a takedown attempt, it was all down hill from there.

Can you guys ban ddeecc? or can you only ban humans? Regardless, ddeecc is probably still making more useful contributions than HusseinObama.

It is a shame that Ricco has fallen so far recently. I was routing for him to get back to the UFC. It looks like he will permanently land in MMA limbo with Monson and Barnett.
