Chatting with Ricardo Talavera on the Eve of his Fight at Legacy Fighting Championships

Ricardo from Lonestar Beatdown 2DNC Members, Houstonians, and MMA Fans everywhere,

We’re sitting here with our very dear friend and fellow ninja, Ricardo Talavera, who is finishing up final preparations for his Mixed Martial Arts fight at the Legacy Fighting Championships, this Saturday at the Arena Theater in Houston.

Ricardo, how are you feeling heading up to this fight?

Oh man, I feel very, very good. Very well prepared, physically and mentally.

You’re set to take on Danny Taylor of Bushi Ban. How much do you know about this guy? Do you feel that there is anything specific you need to prepare for?

I dont know much about Danny Taylor. He fights out of Bushi Ban, a very good and well-known gym. Bushi Ban is a very good gym, their fighters are pretty aggressive, they like to bang, love to strike and come ready to fight. So, to prepare for this fight i have been including a lot of Muay Thai training, Boxing and of course always to my basics, BJJ. I have been preparing to take care of Danny anywhere. If he wants to bang, then we bang, if he wants to clinch then we clinch, ground, he’ll be crazy. Whereever he wants to go, i am going to make sure he pays for it.

Who’s helped you prepare for this fight overall? What team are you training with and how have those guys prepared you for Danny?

I fight out of ELITE MMA. I train under Eric Williams and Hai Nguyen mainly, however, for this fight we have also included the instruction of Romelle Agra to take care of my Muay Thai training and also Pat Swan for my Boxing. To add to this, Coach David Campbell has been the one taking care of our conditioning out of hell training. plus of course all my teammates at Elite MMA that some how have given me and helped me through out my training.

Any predictions on how the fight will end?

Lights out. whether I choke him out, or KO him.

Are you looking forward to any other fights on the card?

Definitely, I want to see my teammate Sting Ray Blodgett kick some ass. I also want to see Robo’s fight to see what the whole fuzz is all about.

Anything else you’d like to say to your fans and loved ones before you step into the cage?

To my beautiful wife and momma to be. I am sorry for all the long and lonely nights i have put you through, Thank you for your love, patience and support. I love you.

And to my fans, thank you for the support and push through out the years…let’s get this win over with and go eat and party!!!
