Trey- the sambo match was just sport- the guy got a takedown on rickson and won- it wasn’t a real fight. I have seen about 20 or so of ricksons fights on tape, and have heard numerous stories about him. I used to be a brazilian jujitsu fighter, I competed in california and trained with ricksons brothers and met him also. He was phenemonal, absolutely amazing…and I have seen quite a few great people(jordan, carl lewis, barry sanders) but rickson was the best athlete I ever seen. The hugo fight was pretty sweet eh? Not to mention the fact that that dude dwarfed rickson( rickson almost had to jump up to hit him…LOL) he was only 5’9…he had the genes man, totally.
