Mike Ricci “I did the best I could on TUF at 170-lbs”, possible return at 155-lbs in Montreal



It was the ending Mike Ricci had not hoped for, as Colton Smith grinded out a unanimous decision win in the TUF 16 finale last night in Las Vegas.  Smith executed a game plan similar to the likes of Randy Couture where he utilized his wrestling and BJJ skills to dominate Ricci all three rounds enroute to becoming the season 16 winner.

“Thank you all for the support! I did the best I could on TUF at the 170 lbs division.” states an emotional Ricci via his official Facebook page.

Ricci also commented: “See you at 155 lbs in Montreal #UFC #TeamRicci”.

Nothing is confirmed or official as of yet, but it would make perfect sense that the “Martian” returns on his hometown turf at UFC 158 on March 16 and debut in the lightweight division.

MMACanada.net is waiting on word from Ricci’s camp as to a proposed bout, so keep it tuned right here for news on Mike Ricci and UFC 158.
