Dzhabar Askerov, Alex Harris Win At Rumble Of The Kings

Rumble of the Kings' annual event took place yesterday in Linkoping, Sweden, with a few notable match-ups.

In the main event, Alex Tobiasson Harris rebounded from his loss to Nieky Holzken at the GLORY First 16 in Stockholm on May 26, with a stoppage win over Madsua. The first round saw Harris get dumped to the canvas repeatedly from the clinch. After the first round, the fight was all Harris, who dropped Madsua numerous times until finally in the third round, a knee to the head sealed the deal and got Harris a KO win. Madsua just couldn't take what Haris was dishing out.

Right before the main event, Dzhabar Askerov made a quick return to the ring after losing to Warren Stevelmans at GLORY 3 Rome on November 3. He took on fellow GLORY First 16 competitor Mohammed El Mir. Askerov was clearly superior over the course of the entire fight, bullying El Mir around the ring and landed big power shots to the head, body and legs. In the third round, El Mir got injured off a checked low kick, securing a TKO win for Askerov.

Saenchai Beats Pakorn In Scotland

Yesterday in Glasgow, Scotland, a rare occurence of two Thais fighting outside of Thailand happened, as Saenchai PKSaenchaiMuayThaiGym faced Pakorn Baanpiaoom.

From all accounts, they definitely showed up to fight. Many fans in attendance raved about the fight. Saenchai won a decision, but it wasn't easy for him, leaving with a bloody nose. Video should be up soon and we'll be sure to post it.

Next for Saenchai is another big fight outside of Thailand, with Lumpinee light welterweight champion Damien Alamos in Paris, France at Best of Siam on November 22. On December 9, Saenchai will also face Liam Harrisonfor the third time in, Macau. Pakorn was coming off a loss to Mongkolchai Phetsupaphan last month.

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.
