    I quite honestly forgot he was still fighting. Ace was and is a great ambassador for the sport. IMHO Rich played a crucial role in the growth of the UFC and MMA in general by becoming champion during a time of immense growth. Respectful, intelligent, college graduate, school teacher and many more admirable qualities. He was the guy casual fans could relate too and get behind, and more importantly he was proving the fighters weren't mindless, roided up, drunk bar fighters.

    Rich has always been a favorite of mine. Sad to see him go, but he has given a lot to the sport. I'm happy to see he has goals beyond his fighting career too.

    I remember watching him beat shamrock and thinking, who the hell is this jim carrey lookalike? i've been a fan of him since than. I remember silva destroying him and I couldn't help thinking about the outcome for days. seeing my hero getting destroyed like that was just heart breaking. hope he goes out on a high note. ace is definitely a HOFer.

    I think that would be a good fight to watch. If it were finished it wouldn't be until the 3rd most likely so we could have a good back and forth fight. Both guys are good strikers and capable on the ground.
