Ortiz Makes Ricardo Mayorga Submit Once Again

By Tim Kudgis

The first time around, former two-division world champion Ricardo "El Matador" Mayorga (0-3-1 in Mixed Martial Arts) lost a three round split decision to Sergio "Checo" Ortiz (2-1) in a Mixed Martial Arts encounter in San Jose, Costa Rica on October 13.

On Saturday night they had a rematch in Mannagua, Nicaragua. During the first round, Mayorga went after Ortiz and threw bundles of punches while looking to land something big. In the second round, Ortiz scored a takedown early and consistently landed elbows on Mayorga, who was on his back. Finally towards the end of the second, Ortiz caught Mayorga in an armbar forcing the submission.

This was Mayorga's fourth Mixed Martial Arts battle. And the second time he was made to submit in MMA, and his third straight loss in MMA.

Mayorga's first MMA clash was eventually ruled a no-contest after the Nicaraguan boxer landed an illegal blow on the opponent. On July 28th, Mayorga only lasted a 1:40 of the first round when he was choked out by Rene "Level" Martinez (5-0-1) in Managua.

Why do boxers think that because they can punch MMA is for them?
