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.

Lion Fight 13 Results

  • Published in Americas

Lion Fight

Lion Fight 13 went down tonight in Las Vegas in a night of some hard-hitting action that saw some shocking moments unfold through some very close fights. Don't be fooled by the amount of decisions on the card, as each fight had their own appeal and saw lots of action. Kevin Ross found his way to the win column again and while he wanted to avoid any decisions in 2014 he found himself scoring a Split Decision over Matt Embree in an incredible, entertaining and close bout with Matt Embree. Both men should be applauded for their efforts in that fight.

The main event saw Australian Caley Reece take the fight to Lion Fight Women's Featherweight Champion Tiffany Van Soest. Van Soest was the favorite going into the fight but Reece's use of the clinch and sweeps was what was able to separate her from Van Soest in the close fight. The fight was difficult to score, depending on how you saw rounds one and five, but Reece looked strong in round three, Van Soest in round four. It was a great fight from both women and saw a new champion crowned.

Lion Fight also announced that Lion Fight 14 will take place on March 28th from the Hard Rock in Las Vegas, with Cris "Cyborg" Justino vs. Jorina Baars for the Lion Fight Women's Welterweight Championship, Gregory Choplin vs. Marco Pique and Malaipet vs. Shane Oblonsky.

  • Lion Fight Women's Featherweight Championship: Caley Reece (R5 - SD) Tiffany Van Soest (C)
  • Kevin Ross (R5 - SD) Matt Embree
  • Coke Chunhawat (R5 - UD) Rami Ibrahim
  • Jason Andrada (R5 - Dec.) Andy Singh
  • Nick Chasteen (R5 - UD) Jonathan Del Rosario
  • Josh Shepard (R5 - UD) Daniel Kim

LiverKick Throwback: Peter Cunningham Takes the Fight to Dida Diafat in Paris in 1992

  • Published in Kickboxing

The world of kickboxing has a rich history to fall back upon so we here at LiverKick figure, why not? Why not give a glimpse into some of the fights from the past that have made up this wonderful sport and tie it all in to the present. The kids on the Instagram and Twitter like to call Thursdays "Throwback Thursdays," I'm just going to say that this is a LiverKick Throwback.

This time we are going back before even the days of K-1, we are going back to a time when fighters were men and they fought for twelve rounds and beat the snot out of each other. Basically, we are going back to 1992. This was November 21st, 1992 in Paris, France and it was between two world-class fighters at the time; France's Dida Diafat and Canada's Peter "Sugarfoot" Cunningham for the ISKA World Light Welterweight Championship contested under ISKA's "Oriental Rules."

Cunningham might be before the time of some fans now, but it's worth reflecting upon a guy who fought some of the best in the world while representing North America (Canadian, but has resided in Southern California for quite a few years now). Cunningham would fight Diafat in 1996 in what would be his retirement fight, but continues to work as a trainer to this day when he isn't busy in acting, most recently appearing in The Fighter starring Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale.

Rumor has it that he'll be in attendance this weekend for GLORY 17 and Last Man Standing, so be on the lookout.
