TUF 16 Fighter Blog – Mike Ricci Looks Back at the First Two Episodes


TUF 16 fighter and Canadian stand-out Mike Ricci joins MMAWeekly.com to look back at the first couple of weeks on the show.

It’s great watching the show and reliving everything I went through. Team Carwin really had training in order and it was exciting spending the first night in the house but everyone was trying to establish their place.

Other then that it’s clear Julian and Secor don’t like each other… Tension is rising quickly.

I was the first victim of TUF house pranks it was cool no reason to get upset it’s all fun. Cameron and Neil were chosen as the first fight I was so excited to witness my first Ultimate Fighter fight live. Neil and Cam had a great fight, Neil just used his range well and pulled off the win I can’t wait for my turn in there. U

Nic Webb was really getting on my nerves not letting me sleep but not much I can do considering the no fight policy in the house. The two fighters picked were Joey Rivera and Sam Alvey, and I was super excited to see that fight!

Sam was clearly the favorite but Boom Boom brought it to him he was super aggressive and grinded out the decision.

Secor seems to have found his place as the house joker but I know Secor and he is there to fight and shouldn’t be taken for a joke. Well Team Nelson gains control and until next week see ya!
