Former UFC heavyweight champion Ricco Rodriguez will meet The Ultimate Fighter 10 contestant James McSweeney at BAMMA 5 on Feb. 26 in Manchester, England, the promotion announced Wednesday.

Rodriguez will look to extend his 10-fight win streak at the UK-based event, which will be headlined by Strikeforce contender Paul Daley vs. DEEP champion Yuya Shirai for the vacant BAMMA welterweight strap.

I have a feeling Suave will dominate McSweeney. I sure as hell hope so too.

The article is slightly misleading...saying he's on a 10 fight win streak. He definitely is, but 7 of those fights were in 2010.

Nonetheless, I'd still like to see him do well, and go as far as he can. I love a good comeback (if I can call it that).

And McSweeny deserves a beating. I really want Zac Jenson to get ahold of McSweeny. I think Jenson will kill him...literally.

I think Ricco can take McSweeney out early, probably by sub.
