It seems even Mike Tyson can find no love for former UFC champion Ricco Rodriguez. Tyson was on hand in Las Vegas along with other notables on Tuesday who witnessed “Suave” box professionally for the second time in his career:
“Earlier in the evening, former UFC heavyweight champ Ricco Rodriguez lost in a split decision. Ricco tipped the scales at 270 pounds. He had Xtreme Couture boxing coach Ron Frazier in his corner and wore a pair of trunks with a Throwdown logo in a homage to MMA.
Mike Tyson made fun of the fight. â€œAre you going to throw some punches or what?â€ he asked in the first round. Riccoâ€™s opponent, Chad Davis, from Phoenix, taunted the former UFC champ at the end of the first with a little hip gyration maneuver. â€œCome on,â€ Tyson implored. â€œTry to hurt each other.â€
Though Tyson was clearly dissatisfied with the fight, he did not reportedly threaten to eat any of Ricco’s children or extended family members.
