We are just days away from Phoenix MMA Championship’s debut show in Beirut where Muay Thai legend Buakaw Banchamek squares off against Andrei Kulebin for the Muay Thai belt, and BJJ expert Davi Ramos takes on the cardio machine Nick “No Limit” Piedmont in the MMA feature.
Tiger Muay Thai fighters George Hickman, Anvar Boynazarov, Tarek Suleiman, and Christophe Vandijck all have had a hard, grueling training camp in preparation for the inaugural Phoenix Fighting Championship in Lebanon this Saturday. In the MMA co-main event, wrestling coach at the infamous Tiger Muay Thai George Hickman will take on undefeated Matt Sayles, and George’s strong wrestling credentials make him a formidable opponent for anyone. The Muay-Thai co-headlier features a fight that has been a long time in the making as former world champion Anvar Boynasarov faces Morgan Adrar. Also, TMT’s Tarek Suleiman (5-3) will be looking for revenge as he rematches Grigoriy Kichigin (7-5). Kichigin is the man who beat him at ACB 27 which took place in Tajikistan exactly one year back. And finally, welterweight globe trotter Christophe Vandijck will face world champion Pavel Kusch (21-4) in a stylistic match-up that promises war! Make sure not to miss this one.
Check out the above “ROAD TO PHOENIX” film created by Jeff Sainlar, and take an exclusive look into the training camps of the Tiger Muay Thai fighters as they ready for their highly anticipated battles at Phoenix ONE.
