Ricardo Lamas is about as tough as they come.
Just four days after going five rounds with one of the sport’s most lethal fighters, Lamas has already returned to his regular training routine. Lamas took to Instagram to update his fans on his status and posted the photo below:
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.
