FundAFighter Launches Campaign For Muay Thai Trainer Peter Sisomphou

  • Published in Muay Thai

Legendary Muay Thai trainer Peter Sisomphou has worked with countless top names in the world of martial arts over the years, including Firas Zahabi, David Loiseau, Ivan Menjivar and more. He's been a name within the world of martial arts for a very long time now and recently had to undergo a quadruple bypass surgery, which has a very long road to recovery. For a guy like Sisomphou, being in the gym and training fighters is how he makes his living and right now he is unable to do that.

FundAFighter has launched a campaign to raise money for Sisomphou while he is recovering to help to pay for his bills while he waits to get back into the gym and working again. Remember, the world of martial arts is not one that includes 401ks, sick pay and other luxuries found in desk jobs. So head over to FundAFighter to read more about Masta Peter Sisomphou and how you can help.

Pornsaneh Sitmonchai the Latest Muay Thai Legend to Join Evolve MMA

  • Published in Muay Thai

Pornsaneh Sitmonchai is one of the most entertaining Muay Thai fighters in the history of the sport and the 33 year old who has been in so many wars over the years this week announced he would be moving to Singapore to become a trainer at Evolve MMA in Singapore.

Pornsaneh hails from the province of Kanchanburi and began training at the Sitmonchai Gym at the age of 13 which is where he developed the fighting style which would make him a fan favourite all over the world.

During his career Pornsaneh has won the Rajadamnern 118 lbs title, the Lumpinee titles at 122 and 126 lbs, the Thailand 130 lbs title, the WMC 126 lbs title and is the reigning Siam Omnoi 126 lbs champion having successfully defended that belt only last week.

However in recent years he has become known more for his all action style than the silverware it has bought him and Pornsaneh has been involved in some of the most memorable fights of the century including a few of the best bouts ever seen at either Rajadamnern or Lumpinee.

His own personal highlight reel is so extensive that a list of the best Muay Thai fights of all time is likely to contain at least three or four involving Pornsaneh. Last year alone he was in wars with Pokaew Fonjanchonburi (see it here ) and ET Por Tor Tongtavi (see it here ) with the latter winning Rajdamnern’s ‘Fight of the Year’ award.

The most famous Pornsaneh battle of all was his 2010 match with Pakorn Sakyotin that won Lumpinee ‘Fight of the Year’ honours that year and is regarded by many as being the best Muay Thai fight of all time with round four providing some of the most amazing action ever captured on camera (see it here ).

The style of Sitmonchai fighters is distinctive in that instead of focusing on clinching and body kicks the Kanchanaburi camp produces Nak Muay who like to walk forwards and overwhelm opponents with punches and low kicks.

It is an approach to Muay Thai which is more conducive to scoring knockouts than winning decisions and no fighter embodies this fearlessly aggressive approach more absolutely than Pornsaneh who will start relentlessly attacking opponents right from the opening bell.

Pornsaneh will be joining a team of Thai trainers at Evolve MMA that already includes Namsaknoi Yudthagarngamtorn, Orono Wor Petchpun and Saketdao Petpayathai and will be sharing his unique knowledge and skillset with fighters like Shinya Aoki, Ben Askren and Tarec Saffiedine.
