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:
Results after the break.
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
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.
