    I think you guys have forgot that Rickson is too deadly for the ring.
    Captain's Log: Just a little update for all my TRUE and HONEST friends out there:

    1) I am STRAIGHT! I am STRAIGHT! Get it through your thick skulls, numbskulls!

    2) My name is not Ian Brandon Something.

    3) Kacey is coming with me now. I have stolen her from the other Christian Weston Chandler.

    Rickson is pretty old man. Why would he fight when its his job to teach now? If Randy or any of the others top guys could make as much money teaching seminars they would do the same thing. They cant teach as well as he can so that avenue is closed to them.

    Rickson beat Funaki but his style is very different than what you see today and its partially because he trains for a different set of rules than is used in todays sport MMA.

    Rickson's decision not to compete anymore has a lot to do with the death of his son, from what I was told.

    Rockson's death really took it out of him, by all reports, yeah.

    Rickson makes me sad. I think he's great fighter and was a great rep for the Gracies. But now he's NEVER going to get past the "I only fight creampuffs" thing. It's too bad.

    I'd heard all the hype, but only in the last week did I bother really investigating him. I watched Choke and Gracies in Action 1 and 2. I recommend them all.

    Rickson was something else...

    Omar, the fight with Zulu was pretty tough I'd imagine... Zulu was much bigger and heavier than him.

    I could be wrong, but I would think that the fact that he probably doesn't want to put his 400+ and 0 record on the line may have something to do with it

    at the time that rickson fought funaki, most would have said funaki was top 5. after rickson put him to sleep everyone said that funaki was way past his prime and was old and this and that, but in all reality rickson was 40 and funaki was 32. Even funaki himself said that he lost and that he had underestimated rickson. now rickson ad couture well couture would win by tko, rickson and sak id go with rickson by decision. id say that rockson death did a number on him as it would have anyone, althouhg i doubt he said he wouldnt fight anymore because of his death i could only imagine the discraction it has been. id love to see him fight one more time so all these mma noobs can stop talking about how rickson only fought cream puffs, fact is the guy fought the best there was at the time its not his fault he was mile ahead of all the compitition. most of the guys he fought were to stubborn to admit they had no ground game and that they would have to x-train to be better and as such down the road with the new generation of mma fighters x-training they made rickson comp look like crap.

    Look at Sak now- KO'ed by Silva 3 x, and defeated by BJJ fighters Nino Schembri and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. Certainly nothing to be ashamed of, but he hardly looks superhuman now.
    Sak striking abilities suck. But he did beat the Gracies who at one time were believed to be untouchible. So that presidence was set.
