So a lot of people have been asking for a pic of my leg, so here ya go ya vultures!!!! Haha! Sorry it’s not what you expected, little bruising, no limping, already back to training and kicking pads and sparring! (Thanks to my ginger brother billy rose for the rounds) Ready for the next one, I’ll fight whoever I have to, to get back to that title shot. If the title gets vacated do I smell a little eliminator with the top 4 contenders????? @ufc – Ricardo Lamas

Lamas’ post hints at the fact that he is looking to get back inside the Octagon as soon as possible. If Aldo decides to move to lightweight and vacate the title, Lamas could feasibly jump right into another title shot against the likes of former opponent Cub Swanson or Chad Mendes. Other options for Lamas’ return include Nik Lentz, Conor McGregor, Clay Guida, or Dustin Poirier.

Aldo and Lamas went toe to toe for five rounds at UFC 169, with the incumbent champion walking away with a unanimous decision victory. After taking brutal leg kicks during the first four rounds of the fight, Lamas miraculously had enough in him to take the champion down in the fifth and dominate the round.

Daniel Reveles
Born and raised in Santa Barbara, California, Daniel Reveles' interest in Mixed Martial Arts began at the age of fourteen while attending a Fantasy Football draft at a Friend's house. That day Daniel's buddies ordered UFC 88 on Pay-Per-View featuring lauded striker and hometown hero Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell squaring off with Division One Wrestler “Suga” Rashad Evans. After seeing “the wrestler” Rashad Evans put the Ice Man out cold with an overhand right, Daniel became instantly hooked by the unpredictability of the sport. Since that moment Daniel has become well versed in Mixed Martial Arts History and has yet to miss an event. Daniel is currently studying at the University of California Santa Barbara to receive his Bachelor's Degree in Communications with hopes of becoming the next big media mogul. When he is not watching MMA or studying you can find Daniel hanging out with his family and friends or taking in a game at the lovely Dodger Stadium.
