The second fight night of Asia’s Ultimate Mixed Martial Arts Championship is right around the corner. Here’s a snapshot of the four fighters taking the cage in the Fight’s highlight event- the Super Fight.
June 16, 2010
Aaron “Man of Steel” Steele (USA)
Trained in submission wrestling and kickboxing, the “Man of Steel”, a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructor, has fought many fights in the Midwest America. And no, he didn’t get his nickname just from his name, Steele is known to withstand heavy blows and yet find strength to deliver some pretty damaging blows to his opponent.
An ex-soldier of South Korea’s Special Forces, it’s not hard to guess where Kim got his nickname from. But that doesn’t mean he hadn’t fought hard to own the moniker. An old hand at K-1 Dynamite, Japan’s annual mixed martial arts and kickboxing competition, “Special Force” is a top ranked fighter with 46 MMA fights to his name, in which he has won 21 of them.
June 17, 2010
With over 70 fights to his name, “Natural Born Killer” hails from war-torn Afghanistan and has trained in Taekwondo since 15 before picking up Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He took part in his first MMA fight in 2005 and won, following with a string of successful submission fights. Known for his explosive nature and his skillful submission moves, we don’t envy his opponent.
His nickname may be simple but his skills are anything but. Cyrus is a ferocious fighter and a 10-year veteran of Muay Thai, with over 50 Muay Thai fights to brag about. Keep your eyes peeled for his flying elbows and spinning leg kicks- Cyrus is a master at these two moves.
If you're a fan of Mixed Martial Arts, don't give the fight nights on 16th and 17th June a miss.Besides the quartet above, there are eight other fighters each night, so there are plenty of punches to go around.
