MMA has become quite popular in Russia, known for Sambo style of martial arts fighting. Tiger Muay Thai and MMA training camp fighters will be in front of a crowd of 5000+ screaming fans and broadcast across Russia on TV networks to millions of viewers.
Andreas Hessleback, assistant trainer at Tiger Muay Thai and MMA Training Camp, prepared a special entry video and music for the fighters walk to the ring. Ray has shown Berneung, replacing Andy Gooch with an injury at last moment, some basic ground moves if he gets taken down. However, you can expect Berneung to come out Muay Thai style looking to elbow or drop his opponent with his vicious striking skills.
Cyrus is fighting a Sanda match in the main event which is similar to Muay Thai where fighters will be stood back up after any take down. Chad, Wiktor, and Berneung are competing in “Russian Rules” MMA which allows only 15 seconds on ground before being stood back up.
Good luck to Team MMA Thailand

All good things come to an end, and Ritt’s string of 9-straight wins came to an end in a war with his Thai opponent @ Kata stadium on October 22, 2008. Ritt won their first fight with a 2nd round KO, but the tables were turned in the rematch as these two hardcore fighters went to absolute war over 5-rounds. They cut each other as both took stitches, but in the end the refrees gave the fight to Ritt’s opponent setting up a grudge match.
In her 4th fight for Tiger Muay Thai and MMA Training Camp, Veronica continues to impress with another Ko over an opponent that was easily 6-8 Kg bigger than her and had arms the size of a male Thai fighter. But her strength mattered little when compared to Veronica’s clinch. Stepping inside the punches of her opponent, Veronica landed a series of knees in 3rd round that dropped her opponent for good and upping her record in Thailand to 4-0 with 4 KO’s. Impressive fight.
