Ricky “El Numero Uno” Nuno is heading into the cage to battle Steve McCabe, this Friday Dec 8, at Art of War 4 from the 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia. McCabe will be fighting in his 28th and final MMA fight and is retiring to concentrate on instructing, coaching, and taking care of his gorgeous family. The fight goes down in McCabe’s hometown and he will have many friends, family, and fans there.
Needless to say, Nuno is walking into enemy territory.
“I’m up for the challenge. I’m looking forward to being in the underdog role, the one everybody’s rooting against. This way I can just fight. Have some fun. All of the pressure is on him,” says El Numero Uno.
Nuno is 3-5 and has fought some of the toughest in his weight class including Tommy “Machine Gun” Marcellino, Brad Mountain,Troy Whitman, and Paul Felder. He’s fought mostly close to home and always has “felt the love”.
Ricky is a lovable, huggable guy who always has a smile, except when he’s about to rumble. After the fight, he’ll hang out and buy a beer for his opponent. You can hear Ricky on the link below. He checks in with us a week before his showdown in South Philly. He’s a great listen.
Art of War 4 is headlined by Jesus “Chavo” Martinez vs Tony Parker, and Will Martinez vs Jeremy Ponder. The Martinez brothers vs the Drive MMA teammates out of Ohio. This card is an early Christmas present as promoter Mike Bickings has it stacked with great match-ups all night.
