First it was a Silver Medal in his first Gi competition at the 2008 Thailand BJJ Open Tournamnent. Then, Ngoo took the MMA stage by storm as he won a unanimous decision over a Xavier (foreigner out of Pattaya.) Simply put, Ngoo looked like an MMA fighter…..not just a Muay Thai fighter. With the home crowd of Thais looking on, Ngoo showed his countrymen that the Thais are ready to show people what a Muay Thai fighter with BJJ skills can do in the world’s fastest growing sport: MMA.
Ngoo grappled, attempted submissions, takedowns, reversals, and of course, his signature Muay Thai as he crowd chanted loudly “Ngoo, Ngoo, Ngoo” as he landed hard knees and showed off his ground skills almost catching a submission win by triangle choke in 2nd round.
