Ricco Rodriguez: “My goal right now is to get 50 victories”

Former UFC heavyweight champion, Ricco Rodriguez admits there seems to be no immediate return to the Las Vegas based promotion but he does has another goal in mind…

Ricco, speaking via MMAFighting.com, said:

“The reality is that the opportunity is not there at the present time. That’s just the reality of it. There’s no reason to beat that subject, and the truth of the matter is that I’m sure the fans would love to see me back in the UFC. It’s just right now the opportunity doesn’t strike itself.”

“Right now I love traveling the world and being experienced in different cultures. Just learning life in different ways. I’ve learned a lot from the guys out here. The camaraderie among the guys at the Wolfslair is amazing. I’ve never seen anything like it. They joke, they laugh, they punch each other in the face. They’re knock-around guys. They’re just cool guys.”

“My goal right now is to get 50 victories. I think 50 victories in any man’s profession is a phenomenal accomplishment. I think it’s got a nice little ring to it.”
