Facebook: Ricky Goodall MMA Fighter
Ricky Goodall, is a Canadian mixed martial artist fighting out of Halifax, Nova Scotia. He has competed in various events such as Extreme Cage Combat, Elite1 and Ringside MMA. He trains at Titans MMA with Renzo Gracie BJJ Black belts Peter Martell and Kevin Taylor as well as three-time world Muay Thai champion Rob Walker.
Goodall's first fight took place in Trenton, Nova Scotia with a win over Rick Aston. It would be almost two years before he would fight again as he took time to train and even tried his hand at promoting, putting on his own event "East Coast Fight Productions" in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. Following his next bout, a loss while fighting with a broken rib suffered during train, he would compile a 4-fight win streak in the Maritimes. He would then travel to Montreal, his first fight outside the Maritimes, to compete at Ringside MMA, an event that was broadcast on PPV and featured UFC Veteran Dale Hartt in the main event. He would return to the Maritimes to fight again, winning by Rear Naked Choke in the first round on July 9, 2010. Ricky will be competing on September 24, 2010 for the Unified MMA Welter Weight Championship in Edmonton, AB against Travis Briere, then returned to Nova Scotia to compete against Sean Pierson on October 23, 2010 for Warrior-1 MMA on their card, New Ground in Halifax, NS. Ricky lost to Sean Pierson via TKO due to strikes, assisting in Pierson moving on to the UFC shortly after.
Goodall would go on to compete against Steve Rogers of PEI on May 7, 2011 for the Elite 1 lightweight title. Although Goodall missed weight by 2 lbs he still went on to win via rear naked choke. Rogers would dispute the win claiming a controversial low blow which resulted in the fight being deemed a no contest. Rogers would retire shortly after making a rematch unlikely.
On May 27, 2011 Goodall promoted a second MMA event under his company name East Coast Fight Productions called "ECFP II: Resurgence." With two weeks left until the event, Goodall's main attraction Jaret MacIntosh would drop off the card due to illness, forcing Goodall to step in and compete while promoting at the same time. Goodall would face PEI's Lenny Wheeler, stopping him in the first round via TKO due to strikes. Goodall went on to compete against Jackson MMA's Jerome Martinez, winning by dominating TKO in the first round.
Goodall would suffer his first loss in five fights against Bellator's Ryan Ford, taking the fight on only 10 days notice on February 11, 2012, two weeks after fighting Martinez. Ford has been dubbed as Canada's "#1 non-UFC welterweight."
