Episode 27 - Ricardo Lamas
On this week’s episode of Majority Draw Radio, hosts Ryan McKinnell and Danny Acosta discuss UFC flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson and welterweight Rory MacDonald carrying UFC 174, UFC 205-pound champ Jon Jones feeling publicly squeezed by the company to accept a rematch with Alexander Gustafsson, the Chael Sonnen-Vitor Belfort-Wanderlei Silva can’t-get-licensed dance, and Scott Coker returning to MMA with Bellator.
Former UFC featherweight title challenger Ricardo Lamas breaks down the challenge ahead of him in rebounding from five rounds with champ Jose Aldo. “The Bully” shares what he would have done different in his first chance at UFC gold and how he’s battling for respect he believes he deserves.
“I beat myself in that fight,” Lamas told Majority Draw Radio of his Super Bowl Saturday showdown with the Brazilian 145-pound kingpin. “Jose Aldo didn’t beat me. But I know what I’d up be against again. I’m going to prove it against whoever I have to prove it to that I deserve another shot. I’ll be back in there with him.”
