On May 15th, boxing legend Ricardo ‘The Madman Mayorga will officially make his mixed martial arts debut against UFC veteran Din Thomas. Shine Fight promotions presents an MMA pay-per-view event scheduled for May 15, 2010 in the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
From ‘El Matador’ Ricardo Mayorga:
“I conquered the world in the boxing ring all the while I was puffing cigarettes and drinking beer. I won three world title belts and I stood toe-to-toe with so many legends, beating some of them. Vernon Forrest, God rest his soul, was a great boxer yet I beat him back twice. I cannot be denied as I am a force of nature. Now I will shock the MMA fans and I know so many of my fans from boxing will follow me as I expand my repertoire. They can’t deny me in MMA and I will destroy Din Thomas. I am going to smash him the way I smashed all the big superstars of boxing. To me, a fight is a fight in a ring, in a cage or on the street. Fighting is my middle name.”
