Yokkao Breaks New Ground with 4K Ultra HD Saenchai Promo

You know, I consider myself pretty up on my PC stuff, considering I game on my PC, but even I don't have a monitor and video card to handle 4k Ultra HD video. That isn't stopping Yokkao from investing in 4K cameras to film their videos, though. Yokkao became the first muay thai apparel brand to launch 4K Ultra HD videos on YouTube this week with their new promo for the PK Saenchaimuaythaigym Yokkao Training center promo video.

If you are like me you can still watch the video in normal, boring HD, but I feel that we might be missing out on something. This is just another in a long line of big things from Yokkao, after opening up one of the biggest manufacturing centers to date for muay thai products, rolling out a multilingual website and having many, many international shops around the world where their products are available.

Top King World Series unveil tournament bracket

As previously announced, Top King World Series will be hosting their third and final event of 2014 from the Asia World Expo in Hong Kong on December 20th. The match-ups have now been unveiled for the quarter finals of their 70kg tournament.

Buakaw is a strong favorite to win the tournament and has coincidentally been given the easiest route to the final. Buakaw will take on Dmytro Konstantynov of Ukraine. Buakaw decimated Moxon in the opening round, ruining the Australian with knees to the body before eventually finishing him with an elbow. Konstantynov defeated Giorgio Petrosyan's younger brother Armen via unanimous decision. 

The winner will go on to face the winner Khayal Dzhaniev and Andrei Kulebin who both won their previous contests via decision.

The match-up of the round is without a doubt Niclas Larsen vs. Marat Grigorian. Both are two of the best prospects at 70kg and made it to the quarter finals with very impressive performances. Larsen destroyed Vladimir Konsky with his patented right hand in the first round 

whereas Grigorian defeated karate stylist Abraham Roqueni via unanimous decision. This should play out to be a terrific stylistic clash, as Larsen will likely aim to finish this within the distance with his heavy hands meanwhile Grigorian will look to

utilize his immaculate technique and pinpoint accuracy to out-land Larsen over the course of three rounds.

Providing no one is injured or unable to continue in the tournament the winner of Grigorian/Larsen will meet either Reece McAllister or Marcin Parcheta in the semi-finals. McAllister turned in a career-best performance in the opening round, blitzing hometown favorite Crice Boussoukou with a combination of punches and knees in the opening round. Parcheta also scored an impressive stoppage as he knocked out Azize Hlali in the third round.

Lion Fight 20 announced for February 20th 2015

Lion Fight Promotions have just announced their first show of 2015. Lion Fight 20 will take place on February 20th at the Foxwoods Resort and Casino starting at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT.

In the main event Jorina Baars will get to defend her title for the first time since winning it at Lion Fight 14 against Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino. She will face Casey Bohrman who only has a record of 8 wins and 5 losses but has fought big names like Germaine DeRandamie.

The Co-main event will feature Chris Mauceri coming off his win over Coke Chunhawat against another tough test originally from Thailand but now training in Atlanta Sittisak. Maybe a win in this fight will give one of them a chance to take the title from Kevin Ross.

The card will be broadcast on AXS TV which means we will get our dose of Michael “The Voice” Schiavello and he will be joined by UFC hall of famer Pat Miletich to do the commentary.

The card will also include:

  • 123 lbs. Bout: Jason Andrada (Las Vegas, NV) vs. John Nofer (Philadelphia, PA)
  • 140 lbs. Bout: Tom Evans (Central Fall, RI) vs. Julio Pena (Boston, MA)
  • 135lbs. Bout: Tim Amorim (Philadelphia, PA) vs. Bryce Lawrence (Naples, FL)
  • 143 lbs. Bout: Gaston Bolanos (Dublin, CA) vs. TBD

Caged Muay Thai Returns This Weekend

Legend John Wayne Parr was supposed to retire a long time ago, but he had this crazy idea to take muay thai and put it inside of a cage while wearing MMA gloves. Of course, he wouldn't ask someone to do something like that if he wasn't prepared to and he did just that. Since then the Caged Muay Thai shows have taken off big time in Australia and this weekend they return for Caged Muay Thai 5: Lidon vs. Badato.

The event will be streamed live via GFL.tv.

Card for AMTL's King's Birthday Event on December 5th

Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke Wants to Become First Lumpinee Champion to Win an MMA Title

Rambaa Somdet saw his UFC dreams dashed recently when an 11 fight win streak which had lasted 14 years was snapped by a split decision defeat but there is another Thai waiting in the wings to take his role as the country’s blue chip MMA prospect.

Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke is already 3-0 and will be looking for a fourth straight win when he takes on Wushu world champion Rene Catalan at ONE FC: Warrior’s Way in Manila next month.

Somdet’s most significant achievement during his Muay Thai career was winning a Channel 7 title but Dejdamrong reached the very pinnacle of the sport by becoming a champion at Lumpinee Stadium.

His Muay Thai days might be over but Dejdamrong is enjoying a new lease of life as an MMA fighter and says his interest in fighting has been rejuvenated,

“At Lookbanyai Gym which was my Muay Thai team the training was very heavy and it was the same every day but MMA is different because there is so much to learn. It’s exciting.”

During his Muay Thai days Dejdamrong competed mainly at 108 lbs, winning the Lumpinee title in this division but he has been making waves in ONE FC’s highly competitive 125 lbs division.

While Dejdamrong has been holding his own so far with three straight stoppage wins he believes he would be better suited to fighting at 115 lbs,

“It’s very easy for me to fight at 125 because I don’t have to lose any weight and I can eat what I want but the fighters are always taller than me. If ONE FC decides to start a 115 division I think I would drop down, in MMA the weigh in is one day earlier than Muay Thai so losing 10 lbs would not be a big problem.”

Perhaps the most surprising thing about Dejdamrong’s recent ascent up the ONE FC flyweight rankings is how many of his wins have come by submission. His last two opponents have both tapped out and he feels he is becoming increasingly comfortable on the ground,

“I started training with the team at Evolve MMA for fun but I enjoyed it and when they asked me if I wanted to try fighting I said ‘yes’. I work every day with Brodinho (Leandro Issa) from Brazil and he is very good at BJJ, he teaches me something different every day.”

Dejdamrong’s success in MMA has brought him some recognition in his native Thailand, where ONE FC is screened live on Fox Sports, and he says the media is beginning to show an interest in the sport,

“There have been some articles about me in some Muay Thai magazines in Thailand, people know that ONE FC is a very important MMA event and they are happy to see a Thai fighter is having success.”

ONE FC: Warrior’s Way is set for the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Manila on December 5th and sees Dejdamrong face an opponent who has won numerous world titles in Wushu in what promises to be an intriguing clash of styles.

The Thai might have complete confidence in his Muay Thai but says he will be prepared for whatever his opponent brings to the table,

“Even if he is very good at the Chinese style of fighting it will be difficult for him to beat me in a Muay Thai match but this is MMA and there are many more ways to win. My coaches at Evolve MMA are preparing me for everything and I am very confident I will win.”

Five Titles on the Line at Lumpinee Birthday Show on December 9th

Every December Lumpinee Stadium celebrates its birthday with a big card and while the location might have recently changed the tradition remains with a show featuring no fewer than five title fights booked for next month.

The Krekkrai + Kiatpetch Promotions show on December 9th will see Pakorn PKSaenchaiGym take on Parnphet Kiatjaroenchai in defence of the 135 lbs Lumpinee belt he won by beating Singdam Kiatmoo9 at the grand opening of the stadium’s new location on Ram Intra Road in February.

The challenger is coming off a win over Kongsak PKSaenchaiGym, who trains at the same camp as Pakorn in Bangkok, and Parnphet has also beaten Yodpanomrung Jitmuangnont this year and will be looking to claim a title in one of Muay Thai’s most competitive divisions.

Saketdao Petpayathai, who beat Parnphet earlier this year, was scheduled to take on Kongsak but has been pulled from the card to be replaced by his Kiatpetch team mate Sittisak who faces the former ‘Fighter of the Year’ in a 133 lbs non title bout.

MuangThai Sor Boongium is coming off a fourth round KO win over Tuanpae ThebestUdon and will be back in action to take on another former ‘Fighter of the Year’, Peneak Sitnumnoi, who will be looking to work his way back up the rankings in the lightweight division.

The ten fight card also features reigning ‘Fighter of the Year’ Panpayak Jitmuangnongym who will put his Lumpinee 115 lbs title on the line against Prachanchay PK Saenchaigym while Ongree Sor Decapan and Wanchalong Sitsornong will also be defending stadium titles, against Ronachai Santi-Ubon and Gengkla Por Pekko respectively.

Judging from the flyer the fight between reigning Lumpinee 112 lbs champion Saknarinnoi Or.Auansuwan and Sarawute Phitphakpahadang will be a non title bout although this could easily be an oversight.

November 25th is the date of Petyindee’s annual show at Lumpinee Stadium to celebrate the birthday of promoter Wirat Wachirarattanawong and this year some of the fights will be televised live in Thailand on Channel 5.   

This follows on from the grand opening of Lumpinee Stadium in February when a 125 lbs four man tournament was broadcast on the same network and once again TV viewers will get a chance to see Petyindee’s golden boy Sam-A Kaiyanghadaogym live in action.   

The broadcast is scheduled to last from 10:10pm to 12:10am with Sam-A’s battle with Bangpleenoi 96Peenang undoubtedly the main attraction, there’s no word on what weight this will be at or whether there will be a title on the line.   

Sam-A’s stablemate Nong-O Kaiyanghadaogym, fresh from his Toyota Marathon win, will also be competing on live television when he takes on Kiatphet Suanaharnpeakmai while Satharnmuanglek Numpontep is going up against Thanaphet Tor Pran49.   

There are three additional fights which could potentially be televised live and they are Ploysiam Petchyindeeacademy vs Tukatatong Por Thairungruang, Satharnmuanglek Numpontep vs Thanaphet Tor Pran49 and Nomdapern STDtransport vs Yimsiam Nakornmuangdet.   

In addition there will be a nine fight card of non televised fights headlined by a super featherweight matchup between the tall, clinch orientated Petmorakot Wor Sangprapai and the notoriously hard hitting veteran Seksun Or.Kwanmuang.
