Chalamkhao PK Saenchai started strong against Kongchai Chanaidonmueang, but he would eventually find himself on the wrong end of Kongchai’s aggressive striking. If the bout was close, Kongchai pulled ahead in the third round with two knockdowns. Kongchai firmly cemented himself as the winner of the strawweight Muay Thai bout and took a big step forward in the strawweight division.
Yodphupa Wimanair and Ilyas Musaev went to war for nine minutes in an exciting bantamweight Muay Thai bout. Although both men showed themselves well, the 19-year-old Thai teen got the edge on the scorecards. The narrow win showed his incredible skill and moved his professional record to 61-9-1.
Lawrence Phillips made a statement to the heavyweight division with his debut performance. When Ben Parker came forward, Phillips was able to secure a body lock and soon went to take the action to the mat. However, nothing further was needed as the impact of the slam knocked Parker out cold. Phillips will still need to show his full range of weapons in the growing heavyweight division, but his debut put him right in the mix.
Lisa Brierley wanted revenge against Rungnapa Por Muangpetch, which is exactly what she got. The Brit connected with a right hand as Rungnapa was coming off the ropes and sent her to the canvas. Brierley claimed an additional $10,000 for her exciting showcase.
