Ricardo Mayorga Lands World’s First Pre-Fight Press Conference Karate Chop

This Shine Fights press conference cracks me up. It’s full of firsts for MMA. For one, we rarely, if ever see the level of trash talking in a MMA pre-fight press conference that boxing has in theirs. Enter one Ricardo Mayorga. Not only does the dude light up a cigarette right in Din Thomas’ face, he says things you’d never thought you hear in a MMA presser, which is only funnier with his middle-aged woman translator repeating it in English. This is of course leads up to a big shove and even more verbal sparring, but you’d never guess what happens next. Mayorga karate chops Thomas in the neck. Let that sink in, Ricardo Mayorga landed the world’s first pre-fight press conference karate chop to the neck. Top that James Toney.
