Ricky "The Martian" Bell Post-Fight Interview

By: Matthew Pearlman


Ricky "The Martian" Bell returned to action on September 20th against a tough Billy Marcee, live at the Center St. Louis for MMA Sports Federation. He won in the second round by TKO. Find my post-fight interview with him below.

 

Matthew: Walk me through the fight.

Ricky: In the first round, the gameplan was to pick him apart and keep it standing. I wanted to use leg kicks, and look for the head kick KO. The fight went to the second round, and I got a TKO via the knee to the body, and I just finished him with punches.

 

Matthew: Who do you want next?

Ricky: Whoever they want to give me. Whoever it is, they’re going to get taken out. They’re going to have a tough match.

 

Matthew: How do you plan on celebrating the win?

Ricky: I’m going to go home and go to sleep. I’m actually fighting next weekend in Iowa, for True Revelation 22.

 

Matthew: How tough is that for you? Going back to back fights…

Ricky: It’s not too bad. That’s why I try to finish my fights as soon as possible without major injuries, so I can get back into the gym and prepare for my next fight.

 

Matthew: What does a typical training day look like?

Ricky: I have my normal 8-5 job, then I go straight to the Academy of Courage. It depends on the day, we have wrestling and jiu-jitsu programs, a pro class every Friday that really tests the soul and true heart of a fighter. If you can make it to the pro class at AOC, you have what it takes to step in the cage.

 

Matthew: What are your goals?

Ricky: I’m going to raise the bar. In 2015, I want my first or second pro fight out of the way, and I’m looking at the next Ultimate Fighter Season at 135-145. That’s my goal and I’m going to do whatever it takes to get to that point.

 

Make sure you watch "The Martian" fight this week at True Revelation 22.
