Ricci is a tough young kid I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do at light weight in the UFC

Lightweight division + Zero wrestling ability = unpleasantness and going back to being Rory's fashion advisor.

He is still going to look small and have problems with wrestlers. Shit, Colton said he wanted to drop to LW too. I would try for feather weight. Other dudes at Tristar seem to have no problem with cutting a lot of weight but then again they don't seem to have problems wrestling dudes either.
