On May 17, 2016, Rio and his fiancée welcomed a child, a boy, his first.
In April 2015, director/producer Danny Segura put together a short documentary film entitled "Scraping for a Dollar" in which Rio is followed on his daily routine and his attempt to reenter the UFC.
Finally, Rio faced Daron Cruickshank on January 25, 2014 at UFC on Fox 10. He lost the fight when he was stunned due to a wheel kick and finally TKO'd by punches at 4:56 of round two. As a result, Rio was released from the promotion.
In late March 2014, Rio signed with olympic gold medalist boxer Howard Davis, Jr.'s Fight Time Promotions. In his first ever main event, he went up against former Bellator fighter Avery McPhatter on May 30 at the War Memorial Auditorium in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. He won in the first round via D'Arce choke. He also won submission of the night.
In his second main event, Rio faced former Bellator fighter Frank Carrillo for the Fight Time Lightweight Championship on August 29, 2014. He lost the fight via second round knockout. Carrillo, however, was ineligible to win the title belt for lack of making weight for the fight.
Months later, Rio faced and was defeated by Francisco Trinaldo via arm triangle choke on May 18, 2013 at UFC on FX 8.
Having changed formats and being moved to a different network, The Ultimate Fighter's 15th season debuted live on cable channel FX March 9, 2012 with rivals Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber coaching the 32 potential candidates vying for a spot in The Ultimate Fighter House. In the preliminary bout to reach the house, Rio faced Northern Irish fighter, Ali Maclean, and won by submission with a rear-naked choke. He was then chosen by current UFC Bantamweight Champion Cruz along with seven other fighters to represent his "Team Cruz" on the show.
Rio made his official UFC debut when he faced fellow TUF: Live alumnus John Cofer on December 15, 2012 at The Ultimate Fighter: Team Carwin vs. Team Nelson Finale. He won via submission (armbar) in the third round.
Rio also appeared in a music video in 2012 entitled "The Crown" by Miami hip-hop, funk and soul fusion band Dangerflow. In the video he plays a man fired from his day job and forced to fight in night street fights to earn money for his fictional daughter. The Crown was also the official song of the Miami Heat championship parade that same year.
The Ultimate Fighter wasn't Rio's first taste of television. In 2011, during the fifth season of Miami-based show Burn Notice (eighth episode entitled "Hard Out"), Rio appeared in several scenes in an uncredited mercenary role, even sharing one scene with show star Jeffrey Donovan.
Rio's first pro fight came in 2008 when he defeated Marc Seno at Reality Combat Championship 2 with a technical knock out by punches. Mike continued on his winning streak besting his next five opponents via submissions and knockouts between 2008-2011, with one fight ending in a unanimous decision against Mike Bruno. It was also during that time that Rio briefly fought for the former Miami Heat player Glen Rice's G-Force Fights promotion.
In his first year at the collegiate level, Rio advanced to the finals of the national tournament, but lost. A year later, he once again advanced to the finals and won his first national championship at the junior college national wrestling championships for Harper College in Illinois at 149 lbs. He then won back-to-back titles at the NAIA national wrestling championships for Lindenwood University in Missouri at 149 and 157 lbs, respectively. He was also the only NAIA wrestler that year to defend his back-to-back title. Rio finished his college career by being named Most Outstanding Wrestler of the 2006 national championship tournament. And it was because of this performance that he had the honor of being featured in the March 27 issue of Sports Illustrated Magazine's long-running segment Faces in the Crowd.
Rio was introduced to wrestling at Cutler Ridge Middle School, but truly began competing at Miami Southridge High School, where he went on to win two Florida state championships under high school wrestling coach Jim Husk (who also coached his father, uncle, older brother and two younger brothers) and assistant coach Kenny Johnson. During that time he led his school to two undefeated state championship wins, individually amassing an overall record of 147-10, going undefeated his junior and senior years. Along with those honors, he also holds the national record of fastest pin at 4 seconds at 103 lbs. He was also named to the Wrestling USA Magazine's National All-American High School Team as an Honorable Mention in 2000 and Wrestler of the Year (Mr. Wrestling) by Florida Dairy Farmers, Inc.
