Friday Night Fights Tackled Seattle This Weekend

  • Published in Americas

Seattle hosted a night of Muay Thai fights this past Friday night. The top of the card featured a trio of San Jose-based fighters. Two of those fighters were from AKA. Also of note, the card featured a fighter trained by UFC veteran Ivan Salaverry. The rest of the card featured local area fighters as well as a couple from Canada.

In the main event, Chris McMillan of Arashi Do Martial Arts out of Calgary, Canada defeated AKA fighter Aleksander Numoski with a spectacular head kick in the first round. Numoski got up but when the ref asked him to walk toward him, he wobbled toward him. A good stoppage.

It was a mix of tradition and the contemporary as several of the fighters performed ceremonial dances before the fight and thai music played during the fight while hip hop dominated the soundtrack for entrances and in between rounds.

The organization for the fights could have been better as the fights were delayed about a half hour for some unknown reason. Also, media had to wait in the will call line with everyone else before getting in.

Results after the break.

Joe Schilling vs. Eddie Walker Set for Lion Fights on October 13th

  • Published in Muay Thai

Eddie Walker's name is one that has been kicked around a bunch recently, in regards to his signing with K-1. Sadly for him and his fans, the fight that was in the works for this upcoming weekend never came to fruition and Walker had to wait to make his K-1 debut. It looks like instead, he'll be the opponent that Lion Fights has selected to face Joe "Stich 'em Up" Schilling on October 13th. Schilling has long been the headliner for this card, but Lion Fights had a problem finding a suitable opponent for him. Walker, who fights at Cruiserweight, will make for a good opponent for Schilling.

For US Muay Thai and Kickboxing this is a pretty big deal of a fight, as Schilling has built his name up on the West coast while Walker has built his name up on the East coast. [source]

Nong-O Kaiyanghadaogym Scores Lucrative Toyota Marathon Win in Bangkok

  • Published in Asia

Nong-O Kaiyanghadaogym is now the proud owner of a Toyota Hilux Vigo worth 730,000 Baht as well as the Toyota Marathon belt after beating two separate opponents in Bangkok this afternoon.

At the upscale Asiatique three fighters who had already won Toyota Marathons entered a four man tournament to decide the overall winner which also had 300,000 baht in prize money on the line.

Nong-O, Singdam Kiatmuu9 and Petboonchu F.A.Group were the previous winners and they were joined by a Japanese fighter called Sato Sota in an event promoted by Petyindee.

Singdam and Petboonchu faced off in the first semi final in a battle which saw the recently crowned Lumpinee 140 lbs champion take on his Rajadamnern counterpart.

It was the taller figher who prevailed as Petboonchu was able to neutralize Singdam's right kick by repeatedly catching it and scoring with sweeps, giving him a comfortable lead at the end of the second which he easily defended in the third.

Nong-O would have been happy with the draw as he faced the unfancied, albeit much larger, Sota in the opening round and, as expected, the Thai won comfortably, although he had to cover up and defend himself from some left elbows which could have jeapordized his involvement in the final.

After a brief break for a boxing match the two fighters returned to the ring for the final and in the opening round Nong-O was able to successfuly disrupt Petboonchu's rhythm with a mixture of switch kicks, teeps and sweeps.

In the second round Nong-O, who tends to get the better of Petboonchu, manged to sweep him again before catching a kick and kicking away his opponent's standing leg to take a clear lead into the final round.

Petboonchu started the final round aggressively but never looked like turning the fight around as Nong-O was able to evade all his attacks and counter effectively to win the fight and take home the belt, cash and car.

In other Muay Thai action Kem Sitsongpeenong, Phetmorakot Wor.Sungprapai and Berneung Topkingboxing all stopped overmatched Westerners.
