Ricky Simon: Living Outside of the Comfort Zone

After an unsatisfactory debut, Ricky Simon faced Montel Jackson (at short notice) back in August, but he again says he was not truly happy with his own performance. Despite having won both bouts and remaining unbeaten in the UFC, Simon hopes that it’ll be third time lucky in his own mind, and he’ll put on a display that he can be truly proud of this weekend, when he faces Rani Yahya at UFC234.

Ricky Simon: Prospect Killer

Back in April, 25 year old Ricky Simon travelled to Atlantic City to compete in his UFC debut as part of the undercard to Kevin Lee vs. Edson Barboza. At the end of 3 rounds, Simon emerged victorious in controversial circumstances, recording the latest submission victory in UFC history. In what should have been the happiest moment of his professional career, the night was blighted by the controversy surrounding the finish and Simon feeling like he didn’t fight to his fullest potential.
