Rick Roufus' (4-4) transition from world-champion kickboxer to first-time mixed martial artist has been an exercise in patience.

But that's nothing new to the 41-year-old, who has been down this path before.

In 1995, the decorated kickboxer announced his intentions to try something new. He shelved the kicking part of his chosen profession to concentrate exclusively on boxing. Roufus enjoyed a measure of success as a conventional boxer, compiling a 13-5-1 record with 11 knockouts. He also won the WBC Continental Americas cruiserweight title in 1996.
