Rick Nuno joins ‘The Loaded Joe’s MMA Podcast’ to talk return to MMA

Steve Jones (1-2) will take on Rick Nuno (2-4) on the upcoming inaugural Maverick MMA fight card at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, April 7.

Nuno has not competed in MMA since December 2014.  Last night he joined ‘The Loaded Joe’s MMA Podcast’ to discuss his transition from MMA to boxing, and the tough decision to come back to mixed martial arts.

The 31-year old fighter has not been sitting on the shelf. It appears as if issues with management and training camps led to the decision to leave the sport, but his good friend, Scott Heckman, who is fighting in the evening’s main event led him to the decision to come back.

Jones is coming off a December submission win over former WCC champion Mike Serrano.

“I’m pumped to see Ricky’s hands in his return to MMA after two years on the boxing circuit. Steve Jones is an exciting young fighter and will look to spoil Nuno’s return to the cage,” fight promoter Willy Sisca told MyMMANews in a previous interview.

Sherman Theater is located at 524 Main St. in Stroudsburg.
