It was Bitter Sweetness for Tiger Muay Thai at the recent DARE 2/11 event held inside Club Insomnia in Bangkok Thailand.

Wiktor Svensson looking to improve to 4-0 as a professional in MMA suffered his first defeat losing in the second round to Polish MMA fighter Chris Haja. Dominating the opening round, and controlling the majority of round two, Wiktor looked well on his way to an impressive victory. Maintaining top control most of the fight and utilizing strong ground and pound, Haja was staggered several times during the fight. Back pedaling towards the cage, Haja landed a fight changing knee to the head as Wiktor over committed on an overhand right.

Stumbling to his back, Haja swarmed for top position, gaining back control as Wiktor dazed tried to stand back up. Securing the RNC victory, Haja defeated Wiktor Svensson in one of the best come from behind victories Thailand MMA has ever witnessed.

Also representing Tiger Muay Thai and MMA Phuket was Q23 founder and American Top Team BJJ Black Belt Adam Kayoom of Malaysia. Facing the tough Korean Seok Mo Kim, Kayoom survived an early scare when he aggravated a pre-existing training injury during the early part of the first round. Working back to his feet, Kayoom landed an impressive left hand, left elbow combination that dropped Kim, forcing him to expose his back. At 3:35 of the first round Kayoom secured an impressive RNC victory against the Korean opponent, who fought Gregor Gracie to a tough decision loss during the inaugural ONE FC event.

With the Victory, it was announced that Professor Adam Kayoom would be representing Malaysia when Asia’s Number one mixed martial arts promotion One FC heads to Kuala Lumpur in January 2012.
