Geo Martinez Not Interested In A Match With Nicky Ryan, Calls It ‘Lose/Lose Situation’

1142

Three-time EBI Champion Geovanny “Geo” Martinez is not interested in a match with the youngest member of the Danaher Death Squad, 15-year-old Nicky Ryan.

Yesterday, Ryan challenged Geo to a no-gi, no-time-limit match:

I would like to challenge Geo Martinez to a nogi no-time limit match. I believe the system I have been learning over the past 3 years is the best in the world and that is why I am confident I will win. I mean no disrespect to the 10 PL team or Geo, but I believe i deserve this match.

Geo, posted a response only hours ago, saying that while he respects Nicky, he feels the young DDS member is not ready for him. He also described the match as a “lose/lose” situation for him:

I respect the kid, he is definitely skillful and talented but I don’t think he deserves a match. Do I think I can smoke him? Yes, definitely, but I also feel like it’s a lose/lose situation for me: if I beat him no one cares cause I’m a higher belt and if he wins by any chance then obviously that looks really good for him, so in reality I don’t benefit in any way. To be honest I feel other up-and-coming grapplers deserve a super fight vs me before Nicky. Even though Nicky has some impressive wins over some of my teammates that still doesn’t put him in my level. I’m pretty sure the match will happen down the road, when and where I don’t know. But in my opinion he’s not ready for the FREAKAHZOID.
