Event Videos and Bouts
Muay Thai is back as M-One Grand Muay Thai presented USA VS Thailand to a rabid crowd in Los Angeles, California. The pro/am card featured 9 total bouts with 6 knockouts including ALL of the pro bouts. It was a thrilling night of fights as high level striking was on display all night, with blistering kicks, punches, knees and elbows doing damage at every turn.
In the main event, Sakkedao Petchpayathai defeated Kevin Ross via TKO (doctor stoppage) in Round 3. Ross won the first round as he was the aggressor and landed the more punishing strikes. In Round 2, Sakkedao begin to find his rhythm and land strikes of his own which only seemed to encourage Ross into throwing and landing too. It was a great back and forth round. In Round 3, Sakkedao pushed the pace even more, sensing Ross was ripe for the picking and landed a brutal elbow that opened up a cut on Ross' head. Ross pressed on but as the round ended the doctor took one look and called a halt to the fight giving Sakkedao the victory on a great fight up to that point. Sakkedao won the interim WBC Muay Thai World Super Lightweight Title with the victory which will probably set up a bout with current champion Fabia Pinca down the line at a future M-One event.
In the co-main event, Joe Schilling defeated Kaoklai Kaennorsing via KO in Round 1. Seconds into the bout, Schilling knocked Kaoklai down with a stiff punch and then did the same thing seconds after Kaoklai returned to his feet. With already two knockdowns to his credit, Schilling was like a shark that smells blood as he continues his attack. After a few elbows and knees in the clinch, Schilling landed the final punch of the fight, a right hand that sent Kaoklai to the canvas for the third and final time. With his victory, Schilling wins the interim WBC Muay Thai World Light Heavyweight Title.
