Long Awaited Nathan Corbett vs. Steve McKinnon Rematch Happening On Sept. 1

It's been a long time since Nathan Corbett and Steve McKinnon fought, back in 2006. "Carnage" won via cuts in that fight, and fans, particularly in Australia have been bugging for the rematch for years now. It's finally happening.

Nathan "Carnage" Corbett and Steve McKinnon will fight again on September 1 in Australia for Total Carnage Promotions, which made its debut in April with Corbett in the main event, beating Stephane Susperregui. Corbett and McKinnon are the top two in Australia and both top fighters in the world in Muay Thai at 95kg and that's what weight the fight is at.

There was a lot of controversy over the weight, with Corbett originally wanting to do it at 92.5kg. That received a lot of backlash from the Muay Thai community in Australia, so the weight was moved up to 95kg and the fight was agreed to. Corbett apparently walks around 95kg and is wanting to go a bit lower in weight to fight but he's out to prove everyone that was criticizing him for the choice of original weight wrong, and props to him for it.

Corbett is fighting on June 23 at Kings of Kombat 7 in Australia against Marc Adrian of Romania, while McKinnon fights in a few days on June 9 in Bangkok, Thailand against Frank Munoz.

Big Card At Lumpinee On Friday, Feat. Saenchai, Penek And More

It's time for another huge show at Lumpinee Stadium with the world's best Muay Thai fighters on the card. This Friday, June 8, there will be a ton of belts on the line in various weight classes featuring the likes of Saenchai, Penek and Singdam, just to name a few.

In the main event, a real mega fight is taking place between Saenchai (known as Saenchai PKMuaythaigym now) and Penek Sitnumnoi. Saenchai is coming off a huge win in March where he dominated Sagetdao Phetphayathai, a top fighter who had given him tons of trouble in the past. Penek recently won the Fighter of the Year award in Thailand after he defeated Sam-A and ended his unbeaten streak with a clear cut unanimous decision victory. Saenchai has to come all the way down to 127.5lbs while Penek will have the weight advantage at 129.

Right under that fight is a fight for the vacant Lumpinee Lightweight title, between Singdam Kiatmoo9 and Wanchalerm Oodonmuang. Wanchalerm seemingly came out of nowhere in December when he defeated Pakorn Sakyothin (now Pakorn Baanpiaoom) and has been on a tear since, beating Sagetdao and Petboonchu with the only blemish being to his opponent on Friday, Singdam. Singdam's last fight saw him defeat Nong-O Gaiyanghadaogym, with vicious kicks. Speaking of Nong-O, he'll be fighting Petboonchu F.A. Group. Petboonchu really struggles with Nong-O, having been stopped three times by him.

One of the best up and comers in Thailand, and even one of the better fighters, Petpanomrung Wor Sangprapai fights Tingtong Chor Koiyuhaisuzu with a one million baht bet wagering on the fight. For the vacant Lumpinee Bantamweight belt, Rattaket Teedet99 fights Nattachai Pran26. Wanchalong Sitzornong holds the Lumpinee belt at Super Flyweight (115lbs) and will be defending it against Choknamchai Sitjaagung. In the first fight it's another lower weight battle, between Superlek Wor Sangprapai and Palangpon Wacharachaigym.

Wanchalong Sitsonong vs Choknamchai Sitjaagung (Lumpinee Super Flyweight Title)

Rattaket Teedet99 vs Nattachai Pran26 (Lumpinee Bantamweight Title)

TaKe-On Productions and MSG Sports Team Up with Yokkao for "Muay Thai at the Mecca 2" in November

TaKe-On

Big news from TaKe-On Productions of New York today, as we just spoke with the head of TaKe-On, Eddie Cuello, and after their wildly successful "Muay Thai and the Mecca" event earlier this year, they are going to return to Madison Square Garden's Theater in November for Muay Thai at the Mecca 2! After seeing a high level of success with the first show, it made perfect sense for TaKe-On and MSG Sports to stage another event at the Theater at MSG. On top of that, they have a new partner for this event, which is our good friends at Yokkao.

Yokkao has quickly become one of the bigger name sponsors for muay thai fighters across the world, from Buakaw Banchamek (Sombat Banchamek/Buakaw Por Pramuk), Kem Sitsongpeenong, Dzahbar Askerov and many, many (many) more. On top of that, they have promoted their Yokkao Extreme cards, which have also seen a great deal of success and international acclaim. Them coming to America and teaming up with TaKe-On and MSG Sports just seems natural and like the best possible fit.

New York has long been one of America's hotbeds for stand up fighting, with the sport of Boxing having a long, storied history in New York, with Muay Thai and Kickboxing seeing a lot of recent success there, K-1 looking to make New York one of their new homes and even the UFC fighting tooth and nail to gain acceptance in New York.

TaKe-On is in action next on August 11th for a Full Thai rules show in Atlantic City, NJ at Balley's Hotel & Casino.

John Wayne Parr's Illustrated Muay Thai Story

JWPIf you are like me, you are upset that John Wayne Parr's storied career is finally coming to an end. We trust him when he says that age is starting to catch up to him and that it has become increasingly difficult for him to properly train for fights and that his reaction time has slowed down. To be fair, we'd rather he retire with his wits and can enjoy his time with his family and continue training other fighters than worry about his mental health and well-being. It is always nice to see a fighter understand when it is time to hang up the gloves.

JWP has released this pretty awesome story of his muay thai life, including photographs, and you can read it here, in PDF form. This e-book is something you can quickly transfer to your mythical "third device" like an iPad or tablet, or even a Kindle.

So go ahead and click here to read it, download it, do what you want with it, and reflect upon the career of a living legend.

Saenchai to Fight Liam Harrison for the Third Time in Bangkok on July 28th

Saenchai Sor Kingstar and Liam Harrison have fought twice already with the Thai fighter winning a decision on both occassions and they are set to meet for the third and possibly final time in Bangkok on July 28th. The venue has yet to be confirmed but the show will be promoted by Thakoon Pongsupha.

Saenchai suffered back to back losses for the first time in his career recently when he was beaten by Saketdao Petpayathai at Lumpini Stadium in December and then found himself on the wrong side of an extremely dubious decision after a three round fight with Fabio Pinca in Italy in January.

He confounded the critics by comfortably defeating Saketdao in a dominant display at Lumpini Stadium in March and his next assignment will be against Peneak Sitnumnoi there on July 8th. Harrison also received a raw deal from Italian judges losing a split decision to Mohamed Khamal in the Muay Thai Premier League last August although be bounced back to stop Andrei Kulebin with leg kicks in the third round of their fight in Manchester in March.

After facing each other twice in England this will be the first time that Saenchai and Harrison have fought in Thailand. The fight is set for 64 kgs which will be a relief for the Thai fighter who needs to get down to 58 kgs for his fight with Peneak.

Kongsak Sitbonmee, Pakorn Sakyotin Victorious at Big Rajadamnern Show

Kongsak Sitbonmee and Pakorn Sakyotin were the main winners at the Sor Sommai show at Rajadamnern Stadium. The main event was between Konssak and Petcheak Kiatyongut with Petcheak starting the stronger, almost putting the 2011 fighter of the year down for the count with a series of elbows and uppercuts in the second round.

Despite appearing on unsteady legs and suffering a cut from the elbow which started the onslaught Kongsak was able to recover and finish the round strongly. From that point on he was firmly in control, firing in body kicks from the southpaw stance and continually being the aggressor to take a comfortable decision win.

In the co-main event Konsak's old rival Pakorn, who will be fighting Saenchai Sor PK SaenchaiGym in Scotland later this year took on Monkonchai Petchsuphaphun. The first two rounds were uneventful but in round three Pakorn landed a perfectly timed elbow which put Monkonchai down for the count.

There was no way back for Monkonchai who lost his footing a couple of times in the fourth as Parkorn did a godo job of tying him up in the clinch and making him miss when he tried to press forward.

At the start of the night Prajanchay Por.Petnumtong won the vacant Rajadamnern flyweight title with a decision win over Methee Kiatpratoom while Kengsiam Nor Sriphung stopped Phudpadnoi Muangsima in the second round of their fight putting him down twice with a series of elbows and uppercuts, the second knock down forcing the referee to step in and stop the fight.

The next big show at Rajadamnern is on May 30th when Nong O Gaigandeao fights Petboonchu FA Group and F16 Rajanon rematches Yodtuontong Petchyindee.

Full results:

Prajantchai Por Petnamthong defeated Methi Kiatprathum by decision

 Kengsiam Nor Sriphung defeated Pudpadnoi Muangsima by TKO

Dang Sor Ploenchit defeated Petu-thong Or Kwanmuang by decision

Khunsuklek Or Kwanmuang defeated Pajonsuk Por Pramuk by decision

Simon vs. Joe Schilling II Video

Simon Marcus and Joe Schilling met for a second time in the ring yesterday, after their "controversial" first fight, if you would call it that. In the first fight, Simon Marcus scored a dump that rocked Joe Schilling and then proceeded to finish him off after that. The controversy stems from the legality of the technique that Marcus used to dump Schilling.

Nevertheless, everyone wanted a rematch and that's what we got. This one went all five rounds and it was an action-packed fight. I won't spoil the result for you if you don't know it, so here's the video.
