Ricco Rodriguez, a former UFC champion, suffered his first loss in pro boxing on Tuesday night at the hands of Chad Davis. The split-decision defeat brings Ricco’s record to 1-1 inside the boxing ring.
The slow and uneventful four round affair was highlighted not by what happened in the ring, but by who was in attendance ringside.
Mike Tyson heckled the pugilists with taunts of “are you going to throw a punch or what?” and, “come on, try to hurt each other.”
As for MMA, Rodriguez won his last match just two weeks ago, a submission victory over Chris Guillen at an Ultimate Combat Experience event.
Rodriguez couldn’t be reached for comment after the fight.
