Ricco Rodriguez has accomplished a lot over his career. Rodriguez became a UFC Champion when he had an epic win over Randy Couture at UFC 39. Since then he struggled. He lost to Tim Sylvia at UFC 41, lost a controversial decision to Minotauro Noguiera and a decision loss to Pedro Rizzo at UFC 45.

Now Ricco has had a rebirth of sorts. He is starting from the bottom, fighting in smaller organizations and getting back on the winning track. He is 2-0 in his “comeback” and he sat down with MMAWeekly Radio’s Ryan Bennett for a very in depth interview on MMAWeekly TV.

Ricco talks about why he didn’t take the Arlovski fight, who the new Team Punishment really is, what he’s been doing training wise, and the new road map he is taking to get back on top in MMA.

It’s a very candid interview and it may change how you look at the man once referred to as “Suave”, who has now seemed to turn the corner as he gets set to fight this weekend in Hawaii. Watch the exclusive interview right now on MMAWeekly TV.
