TMT Alumni Yasubey Enomoto shocks the Japanese MMA scene as he beats former ADCC Champion Sanae Kikuta in Tokyo Japan.
Tiger Muay Thai and MMA Phuket Alumni Yasubey Enomoto shocked the Japanese MMA world when he beat former ADCC Champion Sanae Kikuta this weekend in Tokyo Japan. Fighting for the number one organization in Japan Sengoku, Yasubey, relatively new in his career was brought in as a heavy underdog against the Japanese fighter.
Kikuta has notable wins against Elvis Sinosic, Egan Inoue, Masanori Suda, and Eugene Jackson.
With other Notable fights against Renzo Gracie, Yuki Kondo, and Murilo Bustamante, to say Yasubey had the cards stacked against him would be an understatement. Showing the fearless heart of a warrior, Yasubey took the center of the ring dropping Kikuta with a perfectly timed punch before finishing him on the ground.
Yasubey along with his brother Felipe run the Enomoto Dojo in Switzerland and have been multiple time guest at Tiger Muay Thai.
Wanting to train at TMT for this fight, Yasubey ran into visa issues while waiting on paper work from Sengoku that made it impossible for him to fit in the travel during his training camp. Look for Yasubey and Felipe to be back at TMT shortly for another training trip.
Yasubey and his brother Philip have trained at TMT several time and the last time Yasubey gave fee MMA seminar to Tiger uay Thai and MMA guests. Here is a video of Yasubey training Muay Thai with Advanced Muay Thai Instructor Kru Ritt.
