Lidon, Piscitello, and Salvador Headline A1 WCC on November 20

A1 has recently announced the line-up for their A1 WCC show on November 20th.

There are some big names scheduled to compete, including Yohan Lidon, Michael Piscitello, and Dylan Salvador. Notably absent is Fabio Pinca, who was originally scheduled to compete. 

In the main event, Yohan Lidon is looking to rebound from a loss to Aegpracha against Corrando Zanchi. Zanchi has gone the distance against guys like Kaoponlek and Alessandro Campagna, so he has enough experience to make the bout interesting.

Also on the card, Michael Piscitello takes on Yazid Boussaha. Piscitello is the other widely recognized name at the event, with his most recent win coming over a highly ranked Sudsakorn in September. His opponent, Boussaha, is trying to bounce back from a loss earlier in the year at Explosion Fight Night 5.

The two fights I'm most interested in are Dylan Salvador vs. Romdhane Hafed, and Amine Kacem vs. Lucien Gross. Salvador gained a lot of exposure with his massive upset over Saiyok not long ago, although the hype lost some steam when it was revealed that an injury forced Saiyok out of the fight, not a KO. Salvador will be looking to keep the train going against Hafed and establish himself as a name in the weight class. Kacem is a very promising up-and-comer on the French circuits with wins over Albert Chey and Montier Gaylord. It will be interesting to see how they do, and these fights wll let us know if they can hang with the big names in France.

Muay Thai Combat Mania 2012, December 30: Kem Sitsongpeenong vs. Yodsanklai Fairtex

For the past few months there's been word of Kem Sitsongpeenong and Yodsanklai Fairtex fighting on December 30 in Pattaya, Thailand, and just now we've gotten full details of the fight and the event.

Muay Thai Combat, ran by Stefania Picelli and Yokkao will host the event, titled Muay Thai Combat Mania Pattaya. The event will be streamed live on yokkao.com and muaythaicombat.com.

Yodsanklai Fairtex was for a long time one of the most world-renowned Thais fighting internationally and Kem has become one of those Thais over the past few years. For a long time, this fight seemed like it wouldn't happen because of weight but both fighters agreed on 71kg with same day weigh-ins.

Kem and Yod used to be stablemates at Fairtex, and a few years ago, many would've taken Yod to win without a second thought. Things have changed a lot over the past few years with seemingly slowing down, especially this year and last year. Both fighters are 27 years old.

Saenchai vs. Diesellek Aoodonmuang At Yokkao Extreme 2013, January 26

Yokkao is holding their now annual Yokkao Extreme event on January 26 in Milan, Italy, and it's headlined by Andy Souwer vs. Dzhabar Askerov. So far, that was the only fight we knew, but today they announced a new one.

Saenchai PKSaenchaiMuayThaiGym (far right) will fight Diesellek Aoodonmuang (far left) in an awesome match-up. Many fans had asked Yokkao to match two Thais up or match Saenchai with a Thai, as we rarely get to see Thai vs. Thai in HD and with multiple camera angles. Yokkao listened to the fans here and as a result, we have an awesome fight. Another great thing about this fight is that it will be five rounds.

Saenchai is probably considered the best Muay Thai fighter in the world, fighting and beating the best in numerous weight classes. Diesellek is on the come up and has been on fire this year, coming off a dominant performance over Damien Alamos last month. Diesellek has a very exciting, crowd pleasing style and will definitely try and give Saenchai a fight.
