Default Ricardo Mayorga vs Din Thomas

http://www.shinefights.com/Announcem....aspx?ID=40080

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.

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.
