According to Ken Pavia, Ricco Rodriguez is NOT fighting in Shark Fights tonight

Some of you are under the impression that the Strikeforce Grand-Prix is the greatest heavyweight tournament to ever be assembled, but all of you would be living your lives in a grandiose illusion. The greatest heavyweight tournament to ever have been constructed was Superbrawl 13 on September 7th, 1999. It featured Heath Herring, Josh Barnett, Ricco Rodriguez, Bobby Hoffman, Juha Tuhkasaari, John Marsh, Travis Fulton (who already had 75 fights by the age of 21) and Rocky Batastini. The same person who won the tournament over a decade ago is the same person that a lot of people are predicting will claim the Strikeforce Grand-Prix this year. I’ll let you guys take a college-educated guess as to who that is. In that same mix of fighters stood a young Ricco Rodriguez who caught a first round KO loss to Bobby Hoffman. Ricco then went on to win eleven fights in a row to be the first person to claim the UFC heavyweight belt. If you have an hour of your life that you want to dedicate in front of your computer monitor, you can watch the entire VHS recorded card here. That’s a pretty round-about way to say that according to MMA agent Ken Pavia, Ricco Rodriguez will not be fighting tonight at Shark Fights 17 due to his opponent missing weight by 30 lbs. Here’s what Ken Pavia stated on The Underground just minutes ago. Now I know I’m not the only one that has insomnia. [Source]
