    Does anyone know where he is and what he is doing - in relation to MMA?

    He is really underrated and has great potential, but in the UFC, he never really showed himself. I know he failed to make weight for a title belt vs Yoshida - but Yoshi didn't accept, so the fight was cancelled.

    He is 2-0 since getting cut from the UFC, do you think they should give him another chance against a lesser/very winnable fight for him in Montreal? Or keep him out and then resign? I think he can have a future in the UFC, but missing weight for a title fight isn't something the UFC will look as a great accomplishment.

    What are your thoughts? If he returns, who would you have him fight?

    He's fighting JZ Cavalcante at some point in Titan, 170. Not really excited to see him back tbh.

    He's a damn good fighter that only lost because the UFC is boring and encourages boring LnP like Colton Smith. He should go to Bellator - win a few matches and he can be a top 15 fighter.

    Smith is awful but UFC rules reward boring LnP and point fighting. Ricci won the "fight" but lost the "match" because of the stupid rules. He's much better off fighting somewhere else.

    Lol - how in the world did Ricci win the "fight"? Ricci had almost zero offense throughout the fight. Smith had his back several times as well as mount. Ricci was literally forced to defend throughout most of the fight. One judge even gave Smith a 10-8 due to how little Ricci was able to do. It's not like Colton was just in the guard the entire time either.
