Ron Waterman used his size and strength to hold down
and frustrate the former UFC Heavyweight Champion
Ricco Rodriguez Thursday night in WEC’s main event
Rodriguez had success standing with the H2O man, landing some solid kicks to the head and body of Waterman, but Ron would then just bull rush Ricco, secure the take down and ground n pound scoring points each round.
Rodriguez tried an armbar and triangle on his opponent, but Waterman powered out time and time again. Waterman executed a perfect game plan using his strength and size to hold down the smaller Rodriguez and getting the unanimous decision 30-27 on all three judges scorecards.
