Mixed Martial Arts Career
Ricardo Lamas began competing in professional mixed martial arts in 2008, going 5-0 before signing a multi-fight contract with World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC).
Lamas returned to action at WEC 47: Bowles vs. Cruz on March 6, 2010 where he fought Frenchmen Bendy Casimir. The bout was Casimir WEC debut. After a few traded blows on the feet, Lamas shucked off a pair of takedown attempts from Casimir. As the WEC rookie tried a third time to get the fight to the floor, Lamas delivered a powerful, well-timed knee to the head, and Casimir collapsed on the canvas. Referee Greg Franklin immediately waved off the fight with Casimir stretched out on the floor at 3:43 of the first round.
His next scheduled bout took place at WEC 50: Cruz vs. Benavidez 2 on August 18, 2010, where he faced off against Team Quest's Dave Jansen. The bout seemed like a closely contested bout, with both fighters having their moments standing and during some slick ground exchanges. The judges did not seem to think the fight was close, as Lamas won the fight by way of Decision (Unanimous).
