Main Card

Giga Chikadze (R3 - Unanimous Dec.) Evgeniy Kurovskoy - Giga pretty much dominated this fight, Evgeniy got dropped by a beautiful right hook in the first round, and got tagged with a big knee in the second. The third he rallied a bit, but simply could not come back.

Frank Pareces Vilches (R3 - Unanimous Dec.) Robert van Nimwegen - I missed literally the entire fight to buffering.

Hafid el Boustati (R3 - Dec.) Mohammed Medhar - From what I saw, el Boustati was picking Medhar apart.

Sahak Parparyan (It's Showtime 85MAX World Title Fight) (R5 - Dec.) Amir Zeyada - Crazy fight, back and forth with really great combinations from both men. It was very hard to pick a winner in this fight, Zeyada was a lot bigger and stronger, but Parparyan stayed calm and weathered every storm and had more clean connections.

Mohammed Khamal (R3 - Dec.) Robin van Roosmalen - Wow. Watch this fight. This is what stand up battles should look like, both guys were going tooth and nail for all three rounds, made you wish it were a 5 round bout.

Hesdy Gerges (R2 - KO) Chris Knowles - Knowles had some heart, took a lot of shots in the first round, but in the second round couldn't handle Gerges's power. Right hook, right uppercut, left knee to the face and a hook to finish it and Knowles was DOWN for a solid 20 seconds.

Buakaw, Sudsakorn, Yodsanklai, Saiyok victorious at Thai Fight, Cannes. Yamamoto with upset!

Thai Fight Extreme was broadcast last night in Thailand on Channel 3 from 11:30 pm to 1:30 am.

Fights were three rounds under Muay Thai rules.

Results in brief:

Saiyok Pumpanmuang def. Ibrahim Njie Jarra, 1st round TKO, cut from left elbow

Sudsakorn Sor Klinmee def. Abdallah Mabel, DEC

Yodsanklai Fairtex def. Jose Barradas, DEC

Buakaw Por Pramuk def. Djime Coulibaly, DEC

Yuya Yamato def. Fabio Pinca, 2nd round TKO, cut from right elbow

Petasaween Seatanferry def. Sofiane Derdega, DEC

Allthebestfights.com has partial footage of Buakaw vs Coulibaly.

---

The fights were a bit one-sided.

Saiyok needed all of 10 or so seconds to back Jarra up and cut him.

Sudsakorn's fight was one of the closer ones, but he didn't look to be in trouble anywhere during the fight and Abdallah Mabel was easily the most experienced of the French fighters, barring Pinca. Sudsakorn played in his usual way and hurt Mabel with lowkicks. Mabel came out with elbows to try and win by cut, but Sudsakorn ended up cutting him and they traded some uncommon techniques like spinning elbows. Mabel even threw a Saenchai cartwheel in the third.

Barradas came out gunning in the first round, but Yodsanklai ground him down with power shots and was hurting him against the ropes throughout the second. Yodsanklai cruised through the third and took the decision.

Buakaw dominated his fight with teeps, middle kicks, and dumps, as per usual. Coulibaly gave him a bit of trouble with right crosses in the third, but he got dumped from a low clinch three or four times for his troubles.

I admit I stopped watching Pinca vs Yamato after the first round. Fabio was handling Yuya easily. There was a very evident gap in technique that Yuya couldn't seem to bridge. The pressure game he applied in his upset vs Drago was nowhere to be seen since Pinca had him outmatched in boxing, power, and overall technique. Yuya did partially connect with a right headkick in the first, but it was all Pinca.

Yuya has massive balls, though, and he overcame the gap in experience and technique by rushing in with elbows and cutting Pinca. I didn't see this, and it probably wasn't pretty, but Yuya reminds us that fighters come to fight.

Petasaween was a 130 lb. stadium champion in Thailand, and he took the fight comfortable against Derdega, as he was favored to do. I didn't watch it, but from what I hear, it was about as one-sided as the other Thai vs French bouts.

---

The fights were a good showcase of Muay Thai for a different kind of audience but, excepting Pinca vs Yamamoto, the fights weren't very competitive, and even that fight featured a massive difference in skill that Yamamoto overcame by luck and balls. If the Isuzu Tournament, which concludes this May 21st with Kem Sitsongpeenong vs Nopparat Keatkhamtorn, is any sort of gauge, though, the Thai Fight Tournament itself should feature some very competitive bouts, as it did last year.
