LATE NIGHT FIGHTS 9: Ricco "Suave" Rodriguez taps out Big Nog in under 3 minutes. Todd Duffee vs Josh Bennett

Bloody Elbow is the premier MMA community, and it is because every single user brings something to the table whether in the form of humerous banter or expert knowledge in a one of the martial arts. Being a huge fight fan, i believe this is my contribution to the BE community. LATE NIGHT FIGHTS as a series was created in order to highlight great classics and those fights that are often cited but rarely seen as well as the past, present and future legends of MMA in their early non UFC or non MMA bouts. - KJJ

Welcome to our latest edition of Late Night Fights. Tonight we have 2 rarely seen bouts, one from the world of MMA and another from the Abu Dhabi Combat Club Grappling Tournament. First off we have everyones favorite DUFFMAN in a fight early in his career with Josh Bennett. Take a look:


Todd Duffee 3-0

NW: Jon Spears


Josh Bennett 13-7

NL: Devin Cole, Travis Wiuff


Todd Duffee vs Josh Bennett (via ufc20mma)

Antonio Rodrigo Nogeuria is unanimously one of the top heavyweight grapplers of all time, and the thought of him getting tapped out seems absurd to most people. MMA wise Nogueira is 20-0 having never been submittied in MMA. Enter "Suave". Ricco Rodriguez is 23-0 all time submission wise in MMA. Something has to give:


Ricco Rodriguez 11-5 (1998/1999/2000 ADCC only)

NW: Carlos Barreto, Dennis Hallman, Rodrigo Nogueira, Murilo Bustamante, Sean Alvarez, Ricardo Morais

NL: Sean Alvarez, Mark Kerr, Ricardo Morais,

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira 1-1 (2000 ADCC only)

NW: Sean Alvarez

NL: Ricco Rodriguez
