K-1

This weekend Buakaw Banchamek will square off against Korea's Sung-Hyun Lee in the K-1 World MAX Final Four event. This event is scheduled for February 23rd and will air on http://www.k-1.tv via a free stream. No doubt that this is a huge fight for Sung-Hyun Lee, who was competing at 65kg previously before deciding to move up to 70kg in 2013 and enter the K-1 World MAX tournament. Now he has reached the coveted Final Four and will fight the legendary Buakaw Banchamek, but don't color him scared, because he's not. [source]

"In a lot of ways Buakaw is a fighter with basic patterns. He has a lot of power but his combinations are easy to predict. He does not have the technical ability or combination punching of European fighters like Andy Souwer. I feel my style matches up better with Buakaw than those fighters.

I am not that worried about his power. In 2009 I fought a Thai fighter named Ping Poongkwa. I remember his body kicks felt like being hit by a steel pipe. I fought a lot of other Thais but none of them had that kind of serious power. I feel people are just afraid of Buakaw because of his “name”."

WCK

This past weekend in California the WCK promoted a big Muay Thai event which was aired on local television, once again proving that Southern California's Muay Thai scene has a lot of things figured out. The card featured many local fighters, some of which are local legends, with perhaps the biggest impact coming by the way of Zoila Frausto, former Bellator 115lbs Women's Tournament Champion, who made her successful debut with a second round stoppage.

Full results courtesy of WCK.

Buakaw

Look, I know that only Americans call it Soccer and that everywhere else in the world it is Football. I get it. The thing is, I'm American and I feel it would be disingenuous for me to just start calling it Football like I've always called it Football. Football to me is still the NFL and will probably stay that way as long as there is an America and the NFL. I'm sorry. That being said, Buakaw Banchamek will be giving out the world of professional Football a try.

According to a report, two-time K-1 World MAX Champion Buakaw Banchamek will be playing for RBAC FC, which is a reserve team for the Thai Premier League club. No, Buakaw won't be involved in the Premier League, but what did you expect from him, to just immediately be among the elite? It's not clear what sort of role that Banchamek will have on the team, but he was involved in a game this Sunday and is expected to get some play time. How this will mesh with his career as a Kickboxing and Thai fighter has yet to be seen, but I suspect it won't have a huge impact.

Buakaw is scheduled to fight Lee Sung-Hyun on February 23rd in the K-1 World MAX Final Four. [source]

WCK

Former Bellator 115lbs Champion Zoila Frausto will make her Muay Thai debut this weekend on a Dennis Warner WCK Muay Thai event. The event goes down at 7pm on Saturday, February 15th from the Pechanga Resort and Casino. For those that live in the San Diego area or know how to dial in their satellite dish to pick up regional Fox Sports networks the event will air on Fox Sports San Diego live.

Here's hoping to a good showing from Zoila Frausto, who trains out of the CSA Gym in Dublin, California, and hopefully we see yet another star MMA fighter turn to Kickboxing and Muay Thai as a viable path as there are more and more options out there in the wild right now, from Lion Fight to GLORY. If you are in the area or get Fox Sports San Diego the WCK event looks like something definitely worth checking out.

Zoila
