Muay Thai at the Mecca 2: Live Results From New York City

Evening everyone, I'm sitting here ringside at Madison Square Garden, 30 minutes before the fight's supposed to go down. Good stuff is about to happen, as 13 kickboxing fights are about to happen here in the heart of New York City. Muay Thai and a "full K1 rules" event are pretty much guaranteed to have some blistering knockouts and wild action.

Check back here at the bottom of this fanpost for live results and pictures as the action goes down, as I'll be updating constantly.


The main event features two of America's best current Muay Thai combatants, Cyrus Washington and Chike Lindsay. Hardcore MMA fans might also recognize UFC vet Ryan Madigan, who lost to Tamdan McRory back at UFC 96, Jackson vs. Jardine. Check out the highlight video of Cyrus and combination interview/highlight video of Chike:

Weekend Results: Eddie Walker KO's Joe Schilling

Walker (C) Lion Fight

It isn't that people underrate Eddie Walker as much as Joe Schilling is one of the few American Muay Thai stars that people believe in, so this weekend when Eddie Walker stepped into the ring against the tour de force that is known as Joe Schilling with Can't Stop Crazy behind him, he really had nothing to lose. Things were rocky at the start for Walker and it looked like Schilling was going to get the job done in the second round, but when he went in for the kill, something truly fascinating happened; Walker unloaded with a clean shot that put Schilling down and ended the fight. Walker has gone and made himself a name in the blink of an eye in the US Muay Thai scene. He is also expected to make his K-1 debut at some point in the near future as well, so things are looking up for Walker.

The rest of the Pro fights from Lion Fight were as follows;


Eddie Walker (R2 - KO) Joe Schilling

Gregory Choplin (Dec.) Joseph Valtellini

Tiffany Van Soest (Dec.) Jeri Sitzes

Andy Singh (Dec.) Anthony Castrejon

Coke Chunhawat (R4 - KO) Adiran Morilla


Recap of Warrior's Cup XV

New Jersey Muay Thai fans were treated to an exciting card of amateur and pro fights last Saturday, September 29th at Warriors Cup XV, held at the Rahway Rec Center (not to be confused with the Rahway Rehab Center, so Google carefully, lest you get stuck driving in circles around a safety town on E Main Street for an hour). The event featured sixteen fights (twelve amateur and four pro bouts) and showcased some serious local talent.


Two More Fighters Qualify For It's Showtime Brazil

Yesterday in Sao Paulo, Brazil, two more It's Showtime Brazil qualification tournaments took place under the WGP promotion, the biggest kickboxing organization in Brazil. The tournaments took place at 63kg and 85kg respectively.

At 63kg, the tournament began with Emerson Falcao vs. Eduardo Vieira and Diego David vs. Amilcar da Fonseca. Falcao defeated Vieira by split decision in what was a rematch and Diego David defeated Amilcar da Fonseca by unanimous decision. David couldn't make the finals due to injury so Paulo Sergio Freitas, who won earlier on the card by unanimous decision in a reserve fight against Daniel Matos, replaced him and faced Falcao. Falcao defeated Freitas by split decision in the final and qualifies for It's Showtime Brazil in Sao Paulo on November 10.

At 85kg the tournament match-ups were Clei Silva vs. Ricardo Soneca and Alex Sandro Pereira (pictured) vs. Felipe Michelleti. Both Silva and Pereira won by unanimous decision, setting up a rematch between them in the final. Pereira won their first fight and won again in the final, knocking out Silva in the first round and qualifying for It's Showtime Brazil on November 10.

So far there have been four qualifiers for It's Showtime Brazil from these WGP tournaments and they are Emerson Falcao at 63kg, Wallace Lopes at 70kg, Rogerio Bezerra at 77kg and Alex Sandro Pereira at 85kg. On October 20 in Belo Horizonte again under the WGP promotion, there will be a final qualifying tournament.
