Tiger Muay Thai and MMA Phuket Alumni Adam Schindler has been making a name for himself on the local fight circuits for sometime.

Already a veteran of the Strikeforce and Bellator promotions, Schindler finally got an opportunity to face a world ranked opponent when he faced Ronnie Mann (half thai decent) in the Quarter finals of the Bellator Featherweight tournament held in Florida. With a 20-2 professional MMA record, Ronnie Mann had nearly twice the professional experience as Schindler leading into the bout.

A talented Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Brown Belt, Adam started the fight aggressive, looking to entertain the crowd–for an event that was being broadcast on the popular MTV-2 television channel. Suffering a disappointing defeat, Schindler witnessed his record fall to a very respectable 9-2, as he will continue to rebuild his career in hopes of establishing himself as one of the top featherweights in the world.
