When NBA legend Michael Jordan stepped away from basketball in the prime of his career to pursue a job in baseball, many questioned his sanity. But for Jordan, failure wouldn't result in broken limbs or concussions.
But at 41-years-old, six-time kickboxing world champion -- and former WBC boxing champion -- Rick Roufus is seven months into his search for an MMA light-heavyweight title. Roufus recently told MMAjunkie.com he's enjoying the challenge.
"It's a new challenge to me," Roufus said. "I'm going to be the only guy to go from American kickboxing to boxing to Thai boxing and to MMA, winning titles in all of them."

I wish him luck. He's had a very impressive career. An mma title would be the icing on the cake.
