More propaganda from the biggest coward in NHB.
21 August 2001 | by (South Amboy, NJ) – See all my reviews

This crap Rickson shovels out in this movie is laughable, all that aura and spirit BS. If you don't know Rickson, he is a washed up..wait, never was fighter who talks about how great he is, then ducks all the top fighters who challenge him. He only fights pro wrestlers with no fighting expirience, or just fighters more washed up then him. This movie is only for Brazilian JJ students who still think the Gracies are undefeated...anyone else better steer clear.
