by Tim Kudgis

Ricardo Mayorga made his MMA Debut a successful one in his home country of Nicaragua.  His opponent Tiffer tried to keep the fight on the ground but the former boxing champion was able to hold his own and survive round one.  After more ground fighting in the second, Mayorga (controversially) knee'd Tiffer in the back - breaking Tiffer's submission attempt.  Then Mayorga threw bombs until the round ended.  Tiffer, who screamed after the knee, could not continue to the third - resulting in a TKO victory for Mayorga.
