    ONE Warriors Code Recap, TFC, UFC Aukland Update - Asian MMA Podcast Let’s start off with a quick recap of ONE Championships Warrior’s Code And If you regularly watch ONE Championship be sure to check out the live-streamed commentary and breakdowns that I have been doing during the shows with John Ko of Kumite TV. They stream live on the Asian MMA YouTube Channel, Links are in the show notes.  This was a pretty good card, it had The main event was a Muay Thai title bout that saw Petch take home the strap.  Because that was the main event though this card was held in a ring instead of a cage which I am just not a fan of.  In the co-main Reinier De Ridder took a UD over Leanardo Ataides and positions himself as the top challenger for Aung La’s Middleweight strap.  In other action on the card, Luri Lapicus made easy work of Marat Gafurov earning a first-round submission win.  Koyomi Matsushima got a beautiful TKO win over a very powerful Jae Woong Kim  One of my fa

    Shinya Aoki Pipe Bomb Article Trashing ONE Championship Last week Shinya Aoki published an article that was a pipe bomb that trashed ONE Championship saying they would go out of business in 2020. It was then edited and republished as a much more ONE FC Friendly article.

    ONE Championship Century Paywalled Typhoon Hagibis and a Shiny New ONE Grand Prix Belt

    12/10/2019 Duração: 09min

    ONE Championship Century Paywalled Typhoon Hagibis and a Shiny New ONE Grand Prix Belt   First things first, ONE Century isn’t just a stacked card, it’s two stacked cards back to back! That is just nuts! There are so many belts on the line! If you are not planning to watch these events just punch yourself in the face! Man! This is gonna be crazy.  But from an MMA business perspective, the big news about this event is that ONE Will be moving the second card behind a paywall in the US for the first time. Of course, they have their broadcast deal with Turner so the first card will air on TNT. So if you have cable you should be able to watch that.  The more interesting part of this is that the second part of ONE Century will move behind the B/R Live paywall, which requires a $9.99 monthly subscription to view.  If you don’t have cable or want to shell out the $9.99 you might want to google what a VPN is and give that a shot.  I’m going to link to a report on The Bo

  • ONE Championship Dreams of Gold, RIZIN 18 Recap

    ONE Championship Dreams of Gold, RIZIN 18 Recap

    19/08/2019 Duração: 06min

    We had two massive shows go down. ONE Championship Dreams of Gold in Bangkok and Rizin 18 in Japan. And of course, we have to talk about ONEs first open weigh-in and hydration test since switching to their no cutting policy.  Let’s start things off here in Bangkok with ONE: Dreams of Gold. This was a kickboxing and muay thai heavy card, which ONE tends to do with their shows in Bangkok because that is what the local fans want to see.  This was a great card from start to finish, But for me, the fight of the night, the one that blew away any and all expectations was Stamp Fairtex vs Asha Roka. This was only Stamps second MMA fight, but keep in mind she is already the ONE woman's atomweight Muay Thai and Kickboxing champion, so she is no stranger to the fight game.  Stamp looked phenomenal in this fight. She took it to Roka and never stopped. She dominated everywhere this fight went. On the ground, where I had expected her to struggle she looked amazing.  At one point Michael Schiavello

      ONE Championship goes to Inda, SFC 8, UGB Rebirth, FMD, Fighters Give Back  Singapore Fighting Championship has announced their next show which will be September 28th at the FooChow building in Singapore.  That have not announced the full fight card yet, but when they do I will be sure to update everyone on the MMA matches.  SFC generally does cards with a mix of combat sports on them, MMA, Boxing, and Muay Thai. I watched the last event on their Facebook live stream and there were some really good fights. I would highly recommend checking them out. Link to their FB page will be in the show notes.  It’s been a year since we have seen a Full Metal Dojo show in Bangkok, but now it looks as though they will be putting on their next event on August 31st. There still isn’t much known, but friend of the show Javier Trujillo will be in the main event against Ibrahim Radi from Monarchy MMA in Kuala Lumpur.  Javier recently made the move from Bangkok to Chaing Mai so he coul

    ONE Championship Dawn of Heroes recap, Pancrase 305 bouts added and Battlefield FC Update - Asian MMA Podcast

    07/08/2019 Duração: 10min

    ONE Championship Dawn of Heroes recap, Pancrase 305 bouts added and Battlefield FC Update - Asian MMA Podcast  Over the weekend we had ONE Championship back in action in Manila.  But before we get into that we have an update on the Battlefield FC event I talked about last week. Several outlets are reporting that all fighters have been paid. That’s a move in the right direction, but it’s still going to be difficult for anyone to trust them going forward, two events and two PR nightmares.  Good sirs, might I suggest you move onto a different venture at this time?  There are two interesting matchups added to Pancrase 308 in September. Edna Oliveira will be stepping in to replace Nori Date against Emi Fujino in the strawweight Grand Prix semifinal.  We will also see UFC vet Issei Tamura try to get back in the win column against Katshshi Sugiyama who is on a two-fight win streak.  Both interesting fights I am excited to see. I am an old, old school Pancrase fan so I always

    RIZIN 17 Results, Battlefield FC 2, ONE Championship and WADA

    30/07/2019 Duração: 13min

    RIZIN 17 Results, Battlefield FC 2, ONE Championship and WADA Before I get into Battlefield FC, and believe me that is going to be a big part of what we talk about today.  Before that, though I want to talk about RIZIN 17! Oh man was that a hell of a card. I love what RIZIN is doing and the approach they take to the sport. Some great Asian MMA matchups going on over there,  This was a big card, I want to talk about a few of the fights. One of the womens fights early in the card which all of a sudden has implications for the regional scene was ROAD FC Champ Seo Hee Ham in her debut absolutely destroying Tomo Maesawa with brutal knees in the first round.  After the win she called out Miyuu Yamamoto, they had a little moment in the ring and that fight looks to be official for RIZIN 19 as a title eliminator. In other woman's action on the card, Stephanie Egger came away with a Unanimous Decision win over King Reina.  We also saw Jake Huen get the win over Vitaly Shemetov due to a cut in the 3r

    What you need to know about the new ONE Championship Thailand President

    02/07/2019 Duração: 10min

    A few weeks back ONE Championship announced that they have appointed Plai Asdamongkol as the President of ONE Championship Thailand.  While on the surface this might seem like a fairly run of the mill appointment in the industry, this could actually have a fairly significant impact on MMA across Asia.  Now, first off, I have to say I know Plai, I like Plai, he’s been on the show before. If there was a single person who has done more for MMA in Thailand I can’t think of them. He’s also a super nice, honest and upfront guy, which I’ll get into why that makes this situation more confusing in a bit. You guys might remember a few episodes back I talked about that very strange deal between ONE Championship and a new organization called GAMMA where Chatri was claiming he was going to work with GAMMA to bring MMA to the Olympics.  In that episode, I talked about the important role that IMMAF has actually played in amateur MMA.  Well before joining ONE Championship, Plai was

    Asian MMA Weekend Update May 24-26 2019 - Pancrase 305 recap, RIZIN and DEEP Jewels news

    28/05/2019 Duração: 07min

    We start this recap in Japan which will be the same place we finish it with Pancrase 305, and then we have some interesting news bits to cover from Rizin and Deep Jewels. Pancrase 305 was a really good card, I’ve been watching Pancrase since back in the day so I really enjoy their shows on a nostalgia level. I’m going to put the full results up at AsianMMAPodcast.com so you can check that out there. First I want to talk about the main event where we saw Isao Kobayashi unify the featherweight strap against a game intern champ Nazareno Malegarie. This was a 5 round banger that had me on the edge of my seat. I had both men winning two rounds going into the 5th This is where Kobayashi turned it up and put on a pressure to win the round and secure the victory to unify the belts. Talk about a fight to cap off a great card, this was it, this was the fight you wanted to have. The back and forth, the drama, the story that emerged. This is what fighting should be. The other fight on this card that rea

  • The Strange Relationship Between ONE Championship and Evolve MMA

    The Strange Relationship Between ONE Championship and Evolve MMA

    24/05/2019 Duração: 10min

    Today we are talking about the odd occurrence of so many fighters from big gyms outside of Asia are repping Evolve MMA when they fight in ONE Championship. For those of you who don’t know Evolve MMA is a Singapore based gym founded and owned by Chatri Sityodtong. Just in case you don’t know, that happens to be the same Chatri Sityodtong that is the founder, chairman, and CEO of ONE Championship. Blaring conflict of interest aside, given the size of Evolve and its location in Singapore giving it proximity to ONEs HQ, it would make sense that we would see a lot of fighters from their stable in the promotion. Then we take into account that the promotion and the gym have the same owner, again, conflict of interest aside, and of course, we realize it becomes more commonplace to see Evolve fighters on the roster. And surely we are not surprised if we see many of them moved up the ranks and getting title shots or favorable matchmaking. All of that, under the veil of Asian MMA you can sort of under

    Asian MMA Podcast weekend update for May 17tth -19th of 2019 ONE Championship Enter the Dragon and ROAD FC 53 This is your Asian MMA weekend update for May 17tth -19th of 2019 We had two massive events this weekend with ONE Championships Enter The Dragon in Singapore and ROAD FC 53 capping off their lightweight tournament and awarding the million dollar prize. And Don’t forget to subscribe to the Asian MMA Podcast so you don’t miss out any Asian MMA Goodness. Let’s start things off in Singapore with ONE Championship, which put together an amazing card. And before I get into the fights from that night, I want to highlight Michael Schiavello calling the fight cage side for injecting some of the best Game of Thrones references and just slipping them in at the perfect time. It really added some fun audible moments. For some reason, Mei Yamaguchi vs Laura Balin was on the prelims, Yamaguchi came out strong and made quick work of Balin with an armbar finish at 3:45 of the first round. I love w

  • Thoughts on ONE Championship’s Agent Certification Program

    Thoughts on ONE Championship’s Agent Certification Program

    17/05/2019 Duração: 15min

    Thoughts on ONE Championship’s Agent Certification Program - Asian MMA Podcast Episode 24 This whole announcement was def a head-scratcher for a lot of people. It came just a week after ONE made a big splash by announcing their new production studio that will create movies and shows for digital distribution. On the surface, the underpinnings of the certification program seem reasonable for the most part. But the very first point causes pause… Currently a resident in Asia for at least one (1) year No prior criminal record No history or current ongoing matters of legal or lawsuit activity with any athlete A minimum of 10 years of related experience in the martial arts industry Must possess a College or University Degree Now Chatri would go on to explain in some social media posts that lacked any significant details that this program was being put into place because of some issues several fighters have gone through recently and that exceptions to the criteria could be made on a case by case basis.

    14/05/2019

    Asian MMA Weekend Recap for May 10-12 2019 - Asian MMA podcast Episode 23 There was a fair amount of action going on this weekend in Asian MMA focused around Thailand and Japan. We likely won’t see anything from Malaysia or Indonesia for a month due to Ramadan being in full swing and both of those being Muslim majority countries so just about everyone from there is fasting. Let’s start off in Japan where we had DEEP 89 Impact go down, This was a fun card that saw Satoshi Yamasu overcome early adversity to stop Daiki Hata and retain his DEEP Featherweight belt. Hata came out strong, and was pressuring Yamasu throughout the first and had him in some serious trouble towards the end of the round.   When they came out in the second Hata looked to pick up where he left off but a hook from Yamasu floored Hata. Yamasu then jumped on his back and put the challenger away with some ground and pound. Another interesting fight on this card saw Trevin Jones from Guam take home a second-round submission win via RNC aga

    06/05/2019

    Asian MMA Weekend Recap May 3-5 2019 - Asian MMA Podcast Episode 20    Before we get right into the fight action from the weekend, I’ve got to give a shout out to two fighters who have cut their teeth in the Asian MMA scene over the years and have been making some serious moves as of late. First up a big shot out to Cole Smith who made a successful UFC Debut over the weekend. The Cole Train spent a lot of time training up in Chiangmai Thailand with Team Quest Thailand, under the tutelage of Dylan Fussell. Cole cut his teeth in the Bangkok based promotion Full Metal Dojo, having an amateur fight under their banner, and making his pro debut with Thailand Ring Wars back in 2016. This isn’t on Coles record, but if my memory serves me correctly I saw Cole fight in a very underground promotion out in Pathum Thani, Thailand called Ring Wars, this was pure grit, they set up mats in a parking garage, slapped some cage around it and held a one-day tournament. Amature, pro, it didn’t matter. You just showed up and ba
