Tiger Muay Thai and MMA training camp fighter, Chantal Ughi, the reigning WPMF, Patong, and bangla Champion defeated Lindsey (rawai) over 5-round at Patong Stadium on the evening of March 30, 2009, Phuket, Thailand.
In the long awaited fight, Lindsey showed up at least two weight divisions above Chantal (10+ kg) for the fight, but Chantal, a real Muay Thai fighter and champion shrugged off the weight disadvantage and used her speed, superior technique, and desire to battle her tough opponent.
After showing her boxing skills and peppering Lindsey in the first round, Chantal landed a clean tip kick to the chest that popped out Lindsey’s mouthpiece. Using her weight advantage, Lindsey leaned on Chantal for most of the fight trying to knee, but poor technique and her size led to her being warned by referee for fouling Chantal with knees to the groin.
In the later rounds, Chantal used her boxing scoring several jabs and uppercuts and her machine-gun clinch outscoring Lindsey 2;1 with knee strikes. Then in the 5th and most important round put Lindsey on the mat with a perfect tip kick and then ended the fight with a flying knee to Lindsey’s chest.
Lindsey drops to an average 5-4 while Chantal moves to 10-0 and will be fighting internationalt for the WMC and IMF World titles and then a sanctioned fight in the WBC and much bigger paydays, including a rematch against King’s Cup opponent Carly (Australia), and several other of the worls top female Muay Thai fighters.

MMA Phuket’s three fighters put on a great event at China’s premier MMA fighting event. Art Of War 11 : The Real Deal featured a team of Chinese Mixed Martial artists against fighters from around the world including MMA Phuket’s Andreas Hesslebeck, Marko Huusansaari, and Berneung Sakhomsin.
Andreas faced-off against a tough opponent in Chinese fighter, Wu Haotian. The two warriors battled back and forth and looked like Andreas was close to victory near 5-minute mark when he scored 3 foot stomps to the face of Haotian, but the referee seeing the fighters near the ropes (No Cage), moved the action to the center of the ring allowing Haitian to recover and caught Andreas in a rear-naked choke at the 6-minute mark for the win. many thought this was one of the best fights of the night
Marko pulled out an impressive submission wn with a guillotine choke eight-minutes into the first round against Chinese new comer Liu Guo Quan. Marko cross trained hard for 2-months preparing for the fight with the MMA and Muay Thai programs at Tiger Muay Thai.
The main-event was advertised by rt of War as Muay Thai versus Kung-Fu and Thailand versus China, as Berneung Sakhomsin ( WMC World Muay Thai Champion in only his 2nd MMA fight) went up against one the Chinese best, Chinese Kung-Fu artist Dai Shuang Hai. It was a pitched battle that saw Berneung use his clinch skills in a stand-up fight not even throwing a kick, and not allowing the Chins wrestler to get his ground game going. In the end, after one-10 minute round and one five-minute round, the fight is declared a draw. But you could consider this a win for the rising Thai MMA fighter Berneung as he took on one of China’s best MMA fighters to the distance.
