Elena “Baby Doll” Reid, the current flyweight champion of the world in boxing, makes her debut in the world of mixed martial arts against Tammie Schneider.

“I’m a fighter,” explains Reid. “Whether it’s boxing, or MMA, I like to fight.”

Reid becomes the first boxing world champion to participate in an MMA bout, beating Riddick Bowe and Floyd Mayweather to the punch when she meets Schneider at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas on Friday.

Wouldn't Nishijima Yosuke be the first worldchamp to have fought in MMA? I thought he held the WBF World Cruiserweight title at one time.. Or isn't that considered a 'worldtitle'?
