Coming off a 51-second TKO victory this past February, Rio, is looking to once again show MMA fans that he’s a force in the lightweight division. In the prime of his career, Rio has proved to be an exciting fighter. He has finished five of his six opponents, including four inside the first round. When entering mixed martial arts, Rio was determined to become a well-rounded fighter, and he has achieved that goal, with the two knockouts and three submissions. Originally from San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora, Mexico, and now fighting out of Tempe, AZ., Escudero is a former All-American in wrestling for Pima Community College. In 2008 Escudero won the The Ultimate Fighter Season 8 by defeating Phillipe Nover by decision. Escudero went on to defeat Cole Miller and Dan Lauzon during his time with UFC.
