Since the announcement sent out by K-1 with their line-up so far for the K-1 World MAX Final 16 tournament, there has been some confusion as to who Longern Superpro Samui is and why he is included in the K-1 World MAX tournament. Well, Longern has not always been known as Longern. Before he was at Superpro Samui, he was known as Loh-ngern Pitakkruchaiden. If that name sounds familiar, it could be because he was set to face Kevin Ross for Lion Fights last year before having to pull out due to injury.
We've confirmed his identity with the Superpro Samui gym and have gone digging, so here are a few fights from Longern.
