Pedro Rizzo: Ufc Xxvi
With "The Mouth of NHB" Joel Gold
The morning after his fight with Kevin Randleman I got a quick five minutes with Pedro Rizzo as he was running late to catch a flight back home to Brazil.
Walk me through the fight. What was your game plan, that you thought would make you a winner in this bout?
Before the fight even started you came into this fight with a black eye, tell me how this occurred?
Do you remember being on the ground and he tried to cradle your head, do you remember the feeling?
Were you surprised that he was so quick with his punches? He landed a few.
I am sorry to all the fans. I am sorry to all the audience. I heard it was a boring fight. I don’t remember very well [laughing]. I heard it was a shit fight. I know Kevin and I we can give a better show. That is we are both good fighters, Kevin is the champ. Everyone knows that. I don’t have to prove this anymore. I have already fought good fighters. Everyone knows how I fight. I always fight through, but I always fight for a knockout. Everybody knows this. I could give a better show than last night. I just want to say that I am sorry and I hope the fans and the UFC can give me a new chance and I can show my game, my real game.

IS ON HIS WAY TO RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL WHERE
HE WILL HOST THE SPECIAL MMA EVENT – HEROES
Bruce Buffer, who is known worldwide as the "Voice of the Octagon" for his many years as the Octagon announcer for the Ultimate Fighting Championship and many other international MMA and NHB events will be appearing on July 24th as the announcer for the much anticipated “Heroes” event in Brazil.
Heroes is an Ultimate Fighting event that will happen at the Tio Sam Stadium, in Niteròi (Rio de Janeiro), on July 24th starting at 8:30 PM. It was created by Carlson Gracie, one of the most respected Jiu-Jitsu’s master in the world and SportsJÀ! is its main Sponsor.
The goal of this event is to change how people see jiu-jitsu, promoting peace between its community and avoiding fights outside of the ring. We will have fighters from the different academies in Brazil with some of the most important ones like Johil de Oliveira (Two times IVC Champion) and some fighters who practice with Marco Ruas and Pedro Rizzo.
Four thousand people are expected at Tio Sam Stadium and the event will be covered by a pay TV channel and transmitted online by SportsJÀ! (first time that is happening in Brazil).
Bruce states the following: "I am both honored and excited to have been invited to appear at this incredible and important historical event in Brazil. I look forward to exciting the crowd in Rio and to being a fan as I watch the many talented fighters display their fighting prowess and talent, because on July 24th, ‘It Will Be Time… To Begin…’ again in Brazil."
