Ricardo Lamas didn’t have the best of his Octagon experience in his last visit to the place. The veteran was put on the prelims where he fought rising prospect Mirsad Bektic.
Bektic won the fight via a split decision handing Lamas his fourth defeat in the UFC and seventh in his overall professional career.
Despite being on a two fight losing streak, the former NCAA Division III wrestler has taken some time off to remember the early days of his fighting carrer.
In a tweet, Lamas was visibly nostalgic about how he had to fight in a cafeteria in his first two fights which also lacked space for warming up.
2 of my very 1st fights took place in a cafeteria. In this photo,we were lucky to find a storage room to warm up in. In my 2nd fight there, we warmed up in the crowd. Everyone has 2 pay their dues to get to where they want to be. You’ll either find a way,or you’ll find an excuse pic.twitter.com/fUncTdH4JC
