Want to Be a Sponsored Fighter? Phuket Top Team Has You Covered @PhuketTopTeam

PTTWe've been extolling the virtues of Phuket Top Team on you for a while now, and by this weekend we'll be announcing the winners of LiverKick.com and Phuket Top Team's Challenger Muay Thai Contest, but there is more to this. If you are a professional fighter, or a fighter who is ready to become a professional and believe that you have what it takes, the team at Phuket Top Team is looking to make your life a whole lot easier.

Phuket Top Team is currently looking for two full-time fighters to join their team and represent Phuket Top Team in the world of Mixed Martial Arts. Just because they are looking to sponsor professional MMA fighters does not mean that training with them will mean exclusively fighting in MMA, as they will also help represent you in Boxing and Muay Thai as well. This means that all of your training costs would be covered, including training with a former Olympic Boxing Trainer, Eight Muay Thai trainers, a Sambo/MMA instructor, a 3rd degree Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Black Belt and strength and conditioning. They offer over thirty courses a week, which means at least five a day.

Their only real requirements are to train and work hard, represent the team with your online presence (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) and to fight.

If you are a professional fighter on the up-and-up and looking for an opportunity of a lifetime, take a look at PTT's website for further details on the offer as well as what to expect.

Latest Rankings Of Lumpinee Stadium

The latest rankings from Lumpinee stadium are out. 115, 126, and 130 all got new champions at the last big show in September. Another interesting note in that Japanese fighter Genji Umeno is now #9 at 126 thanks to him knockout win over Wuttidet Lukprabart in Japan. Champions at 105-112 are generally young teens who grow out of the weight quickly. That is the case with Phetmorakot, Lomtaley, and Aekmongkol. They all fight 4-10 pounds higher now, and will likely vacate, or already have vacated. Once again these rankings are from muaythai2000.com

Yuta Kubo vs Tristan Benard Announced for Krush.13

Earlier today Krush announced the final fight for November 12th's Krush.13: Krush vs Europe series and it is 2011 K-1 MAX -63kg Japan Tournament champion Yuta Kubo taking on France's Tristan Benard. Kubo is currently on a 6-fight win streak and has won 11 of his last 12. Kubo is arguably the top 63kg fighter in Japan and the hottest at the moment, making it to the finals of 3 straight tournaments and finally winning his first championship back in June. I don't have much information on Benard, but he fights under K-1 rules in France and lost a decision to ISKA title holder Thomas Adamandopoulos who picked up a win over Keiji Ozaki at Krush.11 in August.

This fight joins two Krush vs Europe fights that are already announced which are Krush 60kg champion Hirotaka Urabe vs Mike's Gym's Maik Redan as well as Krush 55kg champion Shota Takiya vs the UK's Damien Trainor.{jcomments on}

Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar at UFC 136: Dissecting Striking Concepts in MMA

Jose AldoThe sport of Mixed Martial Arts began as a concept that pit practitioners of different forms of martial arts against each other. Eventually in the United States, this led to fighters starting to cross-train in other forms of martial arts to help defend against certain techniques or simply add it to their repertoire. The UFC and MMA have grown a lot from the early UFC events (we aren’t going to touch Japan, different beast entirely), to where MMA has almost become a style of its own, just as it has become a sport of its own.

At UFC 136 there were two championship fights, and both showed different displays of striking prowess, with one fight ending in a decision and one fight ending in a knockout. What I find interesting to take away from the event is how Dana White was quick to declare Frankie Edgar as the best “Boxer” in the UFC and how quickly fans and media followed suit, with many declaring Frankie one of the elite strikers in the MMA world. I have to admit that I was taken aback, as after watching the Jose Aldo fight and how it was an impressive display of striking, I did not feel the same thing about the Edgar fight. The only difference to the naked eye was that the Edgar fight finished with a knockout, while Aldo took Florian to a decision.

What needs to be established first and foremost is that knockouts happen in combat sports, and a knockout does not always mean a superior display of “striking.” Fighters like Joey Beltran and Leonard Garcia are fighters who primarily like to strike in their recent fights and put on strike-heavy fights at UFC 136, but I’m not sure I’d rate either as a very good striker. Beltran holds eleven wins by knockout and Garcia has three, and both men are quick to turn fights into brawls that showcase a lot of heart and wild punches, but that does not make for a good striker, and I feel like many understand this concept in these scenarios. People like watching Leonard Garcia fight, but not many will say he is a great technical striker.

What needs to be established next is that “Boxing,” “Muay Thai” and “Kickboxing” are not lone attributes in a fighter’s toolbox. They are not videogame-like attributes that are assigned and can simply be explained as, “they have good Boxing.” Many have been lauding over Frankie Edgar’s boxing skills through simple phrases like, “Frankie Edgar’s Boxing is Great,” or “Frankie Edgar has the best Boxing in MMA.”

Boxing, Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling, Judo and everything else in the MMA universe are sports and styles unto themselves, and include many, many facets to them. Frankie Edgar knows how to move out of harm’s way and not get hit and he also has very sound technique when it comes to throwing his strikes. On the other side of the coin, he drops his left hand a lot or doesn’t keep it in tight near his chest to defend his chin, leaving him open to take damage from time to time, while his head is also mostly stationary. Another thing to note is that he also tends to focus on the head when he strikes, rarely changing levels.
