source: mmamania.com

When Ricco Rodriguez steps into the cage at Bellator 48 LIVE on MTV2 at 9pm EST, it will be a homecoming of sorts, as Mohegan Sun played host to his UFC Heavyweight Title fight victory against MMA legend Randy "The Natural" Couture.

On Saturday, August 20th, Rodriguez will take on the "Kimbo Killer" Seth Petruzelli in a Heavyweight Special Feature Fight at Bellator 48.

"I'm really excited about being able to return to The Mohegan Sun," Rodriguez said. "The first thing that comes to my mind when I think about the Mohegan Sun is Randy Couture, and winning a Heavyweight Championship. I can't wait to make my return."

The match-up isn't a big announcement per se, but the fact that they've signed Ricco Suave is, on a couple fronts.a. His record is pretty pristine since getting sober. He's now on a 12-fight streak with a pretty good win over Tabera, and some measuring stick victories over McSweeney and Fulton. Dana was reportedly interested in re-signing him before he missed weight against McSweeney.2. This must mean that his charges were dropped stemming from the assault a month or two back.

At least they are names that are familiar and will cause some chatter. Hopefully when the strikeforce guys' contracts start running out, they hop over to bellator to build their name up along with the brand, rather than just fold into the UFC and have to deal with all the shady politics.
