Ricardo Mayorga Suspended For 3 Months, MMA Debut “Victory” Overturned


(Visual proof that we as a species are attracted to tragedy.)

As is usually the case when long forgotten boxers announce their transition to the world of MMA, Ricardo Mayorga’s professional debut was nothing short of a shitshow. He came in some twenty pounds overweight, he illegally kneed his opponent in the spine to get out of a submission, and he was somehow declared the winner by TKO. All in all, we gave it 3.5 out of 5 James Tonys.

But unfortunately, Potato Nation, the comeback story on par with the Bruins insane overtime victory last night has ended in as sad a fashion as it began. Word was passed along yesterday that, following the Nicaraguan MMA commission’s review of the fight, Mayorga’s win has been officially overturned to a no contest. Additionally, the former boxing champ has also been suspended from MMA competition for 3 months, which might as well be a decade because there is next to no chance that we will ever see Mayorga in the octagon again. We can only hope.

And to think, if only the fight had been held on an Indian reservation, we’d all be talking about MMA’s hottest new 40 year-old prospect. Probably.

If the commission didn't state why, that's fine, but say that at least.

Pretty baffling that you can write an article about a win being overturned and a fighter being suspended without ever mentioning why it was overturned or why he was suspended...

Its took 3 Nicaraguan doctors watching the replay for two days straight before they deemed it an illegal blow

The Nicaraguan commission allowed Mayorga to miss weight by 20 FUCKING pounds and still compete but they deemed the illegal blow as outrageous enough to overturn the decision. Seems legit to me, I guess.

Did they give an official reason? Or was it just:

WTF? No, no, no, no, no, that is not right. Overturned
