MMAJunkie with the scoop:

Featuring a main event between nine-time UFC veteran Din Thomas (25-8) and former boxing world champion Ricardo Mayorga (0-0 MMA, 28-7-1 boxing), "Worlds Collide: Mayorga vs. Thomas" takes place May 15 at Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, N.C.

The evening's main card, which has yet to be fully announced, airs live on pay-per-view for a price of $29.95.

This is the same venue the UFC used for it's "Fight For The Troops" event back in 2008.  It's also just minutes away from the Ft. Bragg military base, home of the 82nd Airborne Division.  Tickets for this event will be available soon, so stay tuned to MMA4Real as we'll provide that information  as well as the fight card information when it becomes available. 

With Din Thomas welcoming Ricardo Mayorga to the MMA world, how do you see this fight playing out?  Thomas has solid stand up and is well versed on the ground, but of course Mayorga is a former boxing world champion.  What say you?  Oh, and I will be at this event lord willing.
