    Some Chinese posted convos with him just a while ago again also. Wanted 30k to fight, would've been okay with 20k +10k KO bonus, I think. So seemingly willing to fight if someone just pays 2.5yrs gone Ristie what he wants.

    I was watching a video of him on facebook yesterday, he was training at a gym in Amsterdam with a few pro fighters. It was posted on October 22 so maybe he will come back.

    Would love to see a rematch between Ristie and Petrosyan.

    If that's all Ristie wants, Bellakick or K-1 would be silly not to call in "the man who defeated Petrosyan" for a fight or two.

    Y'know your basement? Well right underneath that.
    He kept causing trouble at Lucien Carbin's gym, kept threatening and trying to fight one of Carbin's assistant coaches, so Carbin kicked him out and refuses to take him back. Since then he's just been training with random padholders and isn't really getting top quality training or sparring from what I've heard.

    He hasn't fought since 2015. In December 2016 he said he was gonna make a come back in 2017 but it never happened.

    He hasn't fought in nearly 4 years and is turning 37 in March. I doubt you'll see him fight again.

    Yeah looks like his Kickboxing career is gone. Hes not young anymore and according to the post above, he was causing trouble somewhere. RIP Risties career was fun while it lasted tho.

    Too bad he quit fighting. Although his cardio wasn't good he was a threat to anyone fighting him. Ristie vs Grigorian and Ristie vs Sittichai would have been good fights.
