Shannon “The Cannon” Ritch has been fighting for more than two decades. He’s not the most decorated fighter in the sport, but is willing to fight all comers, having faced the likes of Kazushi Sakuraba in the early days of Pride. Ritch steps into the Battlefield FC 2 co-main event in a rematch against Wenbo Liu.
