Ricardo Mayorga's MMA win changed to no contest, Mayorga suspended

Al Bello

Ricardo Mayorga's debut win in MMA was changed to a no-contest, and the fighter has been suspended from the sport for three months.

Ricardo Mayorga never does much without controversy, since controversy is about all he's got left, and his recent MMA debut was filled with it, after he was declared a winner when opponent Wesley Tiffer was stopped following an illegal knee to the spine.

The decision has been changed to a no-contest, and Mayorga has been suspended from action for three months, which basically means nothing, by the Nicaraguan commission. He could still box, but he won't, so that, too, is pointless.

Mayorga, 39, hasn't won a truly relevant boxing fight in a decade, since beating Vernon Forrest in their 2003 rematch, eventually settling into a role as mouthy opponent for big name guys like Felix Trinidad, Oscar De La Hoya, Shane Mosley, and Miguel Cotto. Mayorga was stopped in each fight.

It's no real secret that Mayorga's sports career is basically over, as his move to MMA was somewhat ridiculous in the first place, and now has been rightly ruled as pretty much totally bogus. His boxing career has been functionally over for years, and he hasn't fought since 2011. But whatever he does, he'll get at least some attention. That's how it is with Mayorga.
