    Former UFC heavyweight champion Ricco Rodriguez (27-8) has been added to YAMMA Pit Fighting's eight-man heavyweight tournament, and two-time UFC tournament winner Mark Kerr (15-6) will fight in a "Masters Superfight" YAMMA bout vs. Oleg Taktarov (15-5-2).

    The news was released today by YAMMA Pit Fighting. Additionally, the organization confirmed details of its new fighting surface.

    The event, which features the eight-man tournament and two "Superights," takes place April 11 at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, N.J. The event will air on pay-per-view.

    The fight card for the event is now complete.

    Rodriguez, who recently appeared on VH1's hit "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew," is now a favorite among the tournament competitors, which include former UFC and PRIDE fighters. Each opening-round fight in the tournament consists of one five-minute round, and the championship bout will feature three five-minute rounds.

    In addition to the roster changes, YAMMA finally confirmed the details of its fighting surface -- one that YAMMA executives initially promised to "revolutionize" the sport.

    "There has been a lot of speculation about the Yamma; some people thought it would have a moving floor, spikes or even live alligators," said Bob Meyrowitz of Rope Partners, the event's promoter. "But the Yamma isn’t about flashy gimmicks; it's about the evolution of a sport and how the traditional ring can be altered to accelerate that evolution."

    According to lead designer Scott Nagel, "the Yamma" will feature a pit surface in which the edges of the ring are sloped. If a fighter pushes his opponent to the edges of the pit, the opponent actually gets a height advantage because of the incline.

    "What goes up is coming back down, probably in a way that causes the opponent a great deal of pain," Nagel said. "It's going to be much more exciting, much more continuous and have much more action."

    The full card for the event now includes:

    MASTERS SUPERFIGHTS
    • Mark Kerr vs. Oleg Taktarov
    • Eric "Butterbean" Esch vs. Gary Goodridge
    HEAVYWEIGHT TOURNAMENT
    • George Bush
    • Alexey Oleynik
    • Sherman Pendergarst
    • Marcelo Pereira
    • Ricco Rodrigiez
    • Tony Sylvester
    • Chris Tuscherer
    • Travis Wiuff

    Yeah, but he also went the distance and nearly beat Antonio Silva....a fighter many consider to be a big time up and coming fighter.

    Ricco will do well in this tournament. Wiuff will be his toughest opponent.

    Mark Kerr has looked terrible in all his recent fights, even though he won his last fight. Ricco will take this one I think, but at the same time it'd be sweet to see Kerr reclaim some of his former glory.

    kerr used to be the shit. I became a fan of his after watching the smashing machine. He has a lot of good fights when he was in his prime but life just caught up with him and all of the crap he was doing
