The UFC heavyweight championship belt awarded to Ricco Rodriguez after his UFC 39 victory over Randy Couture is up for auction.

That starting price? A cool $29,999.

It is a piece of history from one of the greatest heavyweight fights in UFC history.

Ricco must be hard up for cash.

yea sad thing for Starting Jan. 10, Rodriguez can be seen as a cast member on VH1’s “Celebrity Rehab.” VH1 will run eight one-hour episodes of the weekly reality series. Dr. Drew Pinsky, best known as a host on “Loveline,” is an addiction specialist and oversees the celebrities’ drug and alcohol rehabilitation during the show.

Rodriguez tested positive for cocaine and marijuana after a November 2006 event in California.

Maybe his next fight on the WCO card can be a start over point for whatever he has left. Can't see him challenging for any legit title again, but if he stays in some sort of fighting shape, he could still cause trouble for someone.

But the belt...nice little piece of history, albeit not a cheap piece.

Let's see if anybody even bids on it. When I checked earlier today no bids had been made. Maybe Dana could buy it back?
