Mayorga, an all action fighter, was originally slated to make his MMA debut against veteran Din Thomas on a Shine Fights card. The fight as well as the event was cancelled when Mayorga’s Boxing promoter Don King was granted an injunction in a Florida court. Mayorga then went on the fight Michael Walker & WBA Jr Middleweight Champion Miguel Cotto in 2011. The loss the Cotto was the last time “El Matador” stepped in the ring.After years of talk and anticipation of Ricardo Mayorga’s MMA debut has finally come to fruition.
