While it wasn't pretty, some commenters thought that Ricco Rodriguez deserved the decision against the highly touted Antonio Silva Saturday night.
Ricco did manage to look much crisper in his style during the fight. He wasn't leaving himself open for the counter, and his ground and pound was at least effective in scoring points to win the rounds. Unfortunately for Ricco, he was dominated in the second round of the fight, and the third was arguably Silva's round due to the first few exchanges.
Actually the real bummer of his loss to Big Nog was that under any rule set but PRIDE's Ricco would've won. Here's hoping Ricco can get back in shape, back on track and fulfill the potential that once shone so brightly.
