Freak Show Alert: Crazy S.O.B. Ricardo Mayorga to Face Street Fighter ‘Level’ in Nicaragua, Because Hell, What Else Is He Gonna Do?


(Feel free to skip past the first 35 seconds of bullshit. / Props: OFFICIALLEVELPAGE)

Ricardo Mayorga‘s second-life as an MMA fighter has been colorful, to say the least. The batshit crazy, nicotine-addicted former boxing champ is coming off his no-contest for an illegal knee to the spine against Wesley Tiffer at Omega MMA: Battle of the Americas in May — a bout for which he weighed in 20 pounds over the contracted 165-pound limit, no big deal — bringing his official MMA record to 0-0-0 with one no-contest. (Prior to that, Mayorga’s only MMA action consisted of karate chopping Din Thomas in the neck at a press conference for a fight that never happened.)

The Tiffer incident garnered Mayorga a three-month suspension from the Nicaraguan Cock-Fighting and Shave-Ice Commission (loose translation). Apparently he got his sentence reduced for good behavior, because the same Nicaraguan fight promotion, Omega MMA, is booking El Matador in another match in his hometown of Managua, just two months after he tried to paralyze his opponent. Hey, I’m sure he’s learned his lesson, right?

MMAMania passes along the news that Mayorga will face Rene “Level” Martinez in the main event of Omega MMA 9 on July 27th. Though Martinez has an official record of 4-0-1 in MMA, he’s perhaps best known for the bareknuckle backyard fights he had in South Florida as part of DADA 5000′s crew. (I’m personally fond of the one where Level first-punch-KOs the hapless martial arts instructor who clearly did not know what he was getting into. Good times.)

It’s unclear which weight class Mayorga vs. Martinez will be held at, as if that matters. I’m guessing they’ll just come into the fight weighing whatever, tie some razor blades to their feet and beaks, and go to work. And if you say you’re not interested in this fight, please turn in your CagePotato I.D. Card at the front desk, because clearly you don’t appreciate a great freak show, you maricon.

I'd pay good money to watch this. Namely, ciento centavos.

"garnered Mayorga a three-month suspension from the Nicaraguan Cock-Fighting and Shave-Ice Commission"

AWESOME! Just amazing journalism BG.

And if this Level dude wants to stand with Mayorga, the ex-boxing champion is gonna put him to sleep.
