"Shark Fights 17: Horwich vs. Rosholt II is finally set for Friday night at the Dr. Pepper Arena in Frisco, Texas, but it wasn’t without some last-minute drama following Thursday’s weigh-in.

Main eventers Matt Horwich and Josh Rosholt easily made weight, making their bout official, but things didn’t go as smoothly for former UFC heavyweight champion Ricco Rodriguez."

What a joke. Williams has a record of 5-12 and has lost 9 of his last 10.

Ricco should be ashamed of himself for fighting some of these guys that he fights.

They had to fill the slot without many options I would have to guess. 15-6 was the oponent he signed for.

I disagree, at least as far as tonight's opponent goes. Ricco's original opponent should be the one ashamed for showing up for a 230 pound catch weight fight at 253.75. That's ridiculous and out of Ricco's control.

A bit uncalled for I think, to my knowledge he's one of the few people to still be sober since they left the show.
