So this is a first for The Mad Mamluks, we’re huge MMA fans and wanted to share our passion for the sport with our listeners. We synced up with UFC fighter Ricardo Lamas who was training in Miami at the time. He graciously offered his time to talk to us three weeks before his UFC 199 fight on June 4th 2016.
Ricardo Lamas is an American mixed martial artist who currently fights as a Featherweight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship organization. He trains with local powerhouse MMA Masters in Miami, Florida and Team Top Notch in Villa Park, Illinois. In December 2013, Lamas was awarded his black belt in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu under 2007 World Nogi Jiu Jitsu champion and owner of MMA Masters Daniel Valverde. He is #5 in the official UFC featherweight rankings.
