Mike Ricci Reminds Fans Why He Was Viewed As Top Prospect

Former Ultimate Fighter competitor Mike Ricci earned himself a TKO victory over Jorge Gurgel Friday night in the main event of Titan FC 27.

Ricci, who was released from the UFC after a split decision loss to Myles Jury last year, took advantage of an overanxious Gurgel, taking him down to the canvas and grinding on him.

“(MMA) is in my blood, it’s what I do,” said Ricci, during a post-fight interview with Titan FC. “Getting back in there feels great. I’m thankful to both Titan FC and Jorge for taking the fight.”

Ricci (9-4) advanced to the finals of TUF 16 before falling via decision to Colton Smith. He earned a decision over Colin Fletcher to start 2013, but couldn’t get going in a loss last September to Jury.

    This guy does have talent, but I think he’s a bit like Rory. He thinks too much in the cage and just needs to trust his training, instincts, and coaches. He seems stiff when the lights are the brightest. Hopefully he’ll mature and evolve past that, because I do think he’s got the skills to have a successful career in the UFC.
