It looks like Boxing great Ricardo Mayorga is going to take a shot at MMA, and his first fight is going to be May 15 against former UFC veteran Din Thomas.

I will be keeping my eye on this story to see if it actually comes to fruition.

I dig this guy just because he won boxing titles while smoking and drinking.

yeah, he definitely isn't the poster boy for the healthy athlete .... what it is, like two packs a day he smokes?

Mayorga accomplished quite a bit at welterweight even though he wasn't the best technical boxer, he is just a really tough guy. I think he played up the lifestyle a little bit to add to his persona, and to give some of his opponents a false sense of security, but there is no doubt he lives like a rock-star.

Din Thomas is a tough veteran, and I think if he manages to take Ricardo down he will finish him quick. Still, as long as they are standing, Ricardo has a puncher's chance.
