Best of Siam 3 Results: Sitthichai Tops Pinca

Best of Siam 3 held another big show in Paris, France yesterday and by all accounts it was another evening of great Muay Thai.

In the main event, Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong fought Fabio Pinca in a rematch from just over three years ago. Pinca wouldn't get revenge, as Sitthichai continued to show that at 67-70kg he's arguably the best in Muay Thai. Sitthichai dominated over the course of five rounds and got a clear unanimous decision victory.

Right before the main event was Kaoponlek taking on France's Mehdi Zatout. Kaoponlek, even at 36 years of age, is still a very formidable opponent and he showed exactly why, getting a unanimous decision victory, clearly controlling most of the fight.

Sitthichai's stablemate Kem Sitsongpeenong was also back in action, against fellow Yokkao Extreme competitor Mickael Piscitello. Like Sitthichai, Kem dominated his French opponent, scoring multiple knockdowns with elbows over the course of the fight. Kem would go on to get a unanimous decision win.

French up and comer Raphael Llodra got one of his biggest wins to date, defeating Marco Pique by TKO, after Pique failed to answer the bell before the fifth round. Apparently Pique was on the verge of throwing up. Llodra got stronger as the fight went on.

The lone women's bout of the evening was between France's Sandra Sevilla and England's Lucy Payne. In what was described as a close fight, Sevilla won a split decision. Some had Payne winning.

Much like Petchasawin's fight at Best of Siam 2 against Bobo Sacko, his fight yesterday against Charles Francois was also described as action packed. Francois got cut very early but managed to hang in the fight and hurt Petchasawin later on, before getting dropped with a high kick himself. In the end, Petchasawin walked away with a split decision win.

Another close fight on the card was a battle of two very bright up and comers, Ayoub El Khaidar and Sofiane Bougossa. Bogossa got a decision win in another fight that could've gone either way.

Karim Ghajji Scores Huge Tournament Win, Beats Lidon and Aikpracha

Nuit des Titans put on another big show in France today, which saw a four man tournament at 72.5kg, as well as a number of super fights featuring the likes of Fabio Pinca, Dernchonlek, Super X and Aziz Hlali.

The tournament featured Aikpracha Meenayothin, Yury Bessmertny, Yohan Lidon and Karim Ghajji. Aikpracha faced Bessmertny in the semi finals and in the other semi, Lidon fought Karim Ghajji, in what was a rubbermatch between the two.

Aikpracha defeated Bessmertny, but he needed an extra round to get a decision win. Aikpracha won rounds one and three, but in the second round he got dropped and almost got finished. The extra round was all Aikpracha, however.

Karim Ghajji and Yohan Lidon had fought twice before, with each of them winning once. The two times they fought had been under K-1 rules, and with this one being Muay Thai, it looked like Lidon was the favorite. Ghajji scored a decision victory though, in what seems to have been a very close fight much like their first two encounters.

The final was where the real shock of the event was. Karim Ghajji knocked out Aikpracha in the first round with a combination of a high kick, straight left, knee and a huge right hand to end things. This is a huge win for Ghajji, who doesn't normally even fight Muay Thai. Aikpracha, despite having fought a week ago, was the sure favorite to win the tournament. For Ghajji, this tournament win gives him a ton of momentum as he'll debut in GLORY in April in a big fight that will probably be announced soon.

Also on the card were some super fights. Fabio Pinca defeated his Thai adversary, Yakdam by decision. Apparently Pinca had a tough time with Yakdam's awkward style but still managed to get the win. Super X stopped Aziz Hlali in the first round, but the word is that it was a terrible stoppage and Hlali protested after. Dernchonlek Sor. Sor. Niyom cruised to a decision over Issam Reghi.
