2. The event Ric's opponent supposedly fought in before fighting Ric, the Southern California MMA Smash, doesnt seem to have ever existed.
3. The over-detailed, aggrandizing style of the article indicates it's likely to have been written by Ric himself.
4. The author "Pipen Delmonica" cant seem to be found anywhere else. And that's a pretty distinctive name, it'd stick out like a sore thumb in a web or background search.
If someone can find corroborating evidence for the story, please do. So far it seems like yet one more made up piece of Sniffen's history.
Let's make sure we nip the new argument before it starts. This is a 2008 event and not a 1988 event. It is getting to the point where every event is on the web in some form or another. So, let's not go to the OMG you can't find it on the web.
