Thai Fight Adds Heavyweight Tournament, Sudsakorn, Ikuysang To Final On December 16

Thai Fight's final event of 2012 takes place on December 16 in Bangkok and features the 67kg final between Singmanee Kaewsamrit and Andrei Kulebin, as well as the 70kg final between Buakaw Por. Pramuk and Vitaly Gurkov.

Thai Fight has also added a four man, one night heavyweight tournament to the event. The participants will be Patrice Quarteron, Dmitry Bezus, Andrei Gerasimchuk and James Kouame. 

As well as the heavyweight tournament, two more fights, or should I say mismatches, were added to the card. Sudsakorn Sor. Klinmee fights Gustavo Mendes and Ikuysang Kor. Rungthanakiat fights Angelo Veniero. These two fights seem like more typical Thai Fight mismatches, just like the last time out where Sudsakorn and Ikuysang's opponents didn't have a chance.

Thanks to muaythaitv.fr for the news.

Kevin Ross and Lion Fight Ink a Deal, Ross Fighting at Lion Fight 8

Kevin RossEveryone at some point gets stuck in one of those ridiculous "pound-for-pound" discussions when it comes to fight sports. It just happens and it kind of sucks and everyone walks away feeling kind of dejected, angry or even depressed over it. When it comes to American Muay Thai fighters, just about everyone can agree that Kevin Ross is the guy. He's fought everywhere and fought some of the best in the world, including the elusive Thais from Muay Thai's home of Thailand.

It almost seems like a no-brainer that Lion Fight Promotions, based out of Las Vegas, would sign Kevin Ross to a contract. In fact, I'm confused as to why they haven't before now, but that is the past, I guess, and this is the present. The present is that Kevin Ross has signed a deal with Lion Fight Promotions and he will be fighting on Lion Fight 8 in January, says Can't Stop Crazy.

This will be Kevin's first fight back after being out of action with a torn ACL.
