PRO MMA exclusive interview: Rex Richards (part 1)

Rex Richards had a successful career playing professional football for the Indianapolis Colts. He was one of the large ones, a linebacker who weighed in at 350+ pounds. He was living many a young boy’s fantasy, however, he had dreams of being a fighter.

With a record of 7-1 he’s done very well for himself at super heavyweight but this pro athlete has his heart set on the big leagues. Rex Richards will not be satisfied until the cage door locks behind him as he enters the UFC’s Octagon and to make that happen he will have to get down to the 265 lbs. weight limit.

On February 20th, Rex will fight his final bout at super heavyweight and then it’s nose to the grindstone work to prepare for his first heavyweight bout. The UFC scouts already have their eye on him. They want to see him fight at least one fight at heavyweight. The plan is set, the gears are in motion, meet what could very well be the next BIG addition to the new era of UFC Heavyweights, Rex Richards.
