the fight with Funaki, 13 March 2007
Author: McMike1 from United States

I just finished watching the fight with Funaki, who was the better fighter among the fighters Rickson fought. Funaki's performance was very disappointing. While Rickson was getting up from the mat, Funaki did not take the opportunity to get on top of Rickson. Instead, Funaki was focusing on trying to kick Rickson's leg. Why?! Funaki has made repeated attempts to kick Rickson's leg to no avail, and got himself into this mechanical repetitive habitual motions that he just couldn't get himself out of. Seconds later, after Rickson got up from the mat, Funaki stumbled forward onto the mat like an old man, virtually screaming: MOUNT ME! So Rickson obliged, and choked Funaki out. I have yet to see a worthy opponent that Rickson defeated. 400 wins in this case means very little.
