M-ONE, the American based Muay thai organization that brought us Team America vs. Team Thailand in 2011, is putting on yet another big show in California on May 16. One of the most well known Americans in the business, Romie Adanza, makes his return to the ring against Jomhod Eminent Air, in main event of the night. 2012 Lumpinee champ, Sagetdao, will be featured in the co-main event, taking on Tetsuya Yamato.
Romie Adanza has been noticably absent from the fight-world since his surprise KO loss to Shuhei Wentz at K-1 "Rising" last year. He's faded a bit from the limelight since then, with more focus being put on his teammates at Can't Stop Crazy, particularly Joe Schilling and Kevin Ross. Romie is still one of the best thai fighters the U.S. has to offer and it's pretty exciting seeing him paired up with someone like Jomhod.
As great as it is that Romie is back in action, what I'm personally looking forward to most is the co-main event match-up between Sagetdao and Tetsuya Yamato.This fight could easily be the star attraction for any other venue. Sagetdao had a relatively rocky 2012, compared to his 2011 season that was absolutely stellar, where he compiled wins over Saenchai (x2), Singdam, Phetchboonchu, and Kevin Ross. This will be his first fight in 2013. Tetsuya Yamato, while not the biggest name out of Japan at the moment, is certainly a very skilled fighter and one of the most entertaining to watch. In 2010 he won the first K-1 lightweight tournament with a knockout of Yuta Kubo. Currently, he's on a 2 fight winning streak in NJKF that includes a KO win over Densiam Lukprabhat, and a decision of Paul Karpowicz. No doubt both these guys are going to go at each other's throats.
