American Muay Thai League Review
Order Event – http://www.gfl.tv/event/Fight/MuayThai/American-Muay-Thai-League-/2795
American Muay Thai League returned on GFL.tv with “American Muay Thai League” from the Thurgood Marshall Center in Washington, DC with 8 high octane Muay Thai bouts that showed off the top strikers in the North East and Mid-Atlantic regions.
In the main event, in a 165lb bout, Chase Walden (15-3) from Grindstone Muay Thai defeated Remi Singh of Militia Muay Thai NY (10-3) via unanimous decision. Walden used his height advantage, standing at 6’3”, to score from a distance, but Sigh was also able to score from the outside and Walden had trouble in spots because Singh was a much taller opponent, standing 6’1”, than what Walden was used to. Singh had a strong defense, as he raised up one leg to create a barrier for Walden to fight through. But Walden just went over the top and scored with lead left hooks or straight right hands throughout the fight. There was some clinch work in which both men scored knees to their opponents midsection’s but the fight was won for Walden on the outside as he was able to score with enough single shots and combos that got him the nod with the judges.
In the co-main event, in a 150lb bout, Omar Estevez of Sitan Gym New York defeated Rolando Valdez of UFC Gym Maryland via decision. Estevez controlled the majority of the fight and was relentless on the attack, scoring with leg kicks, body shots and combos to the face of Valdez. Valdez was put on the defensive early on and tried to counter strike with one punch or one kick but Estevez just continued to come forward and apply pressure with an assortment of strikes. It was a great showing for Estevez who looked tremendous against a very durable opponent in Valdez.
If you love the art of striking, there is no better iPPV for you to order than the “American Muay Thai League”. American Muay Thai League always puts on great shows and this event was another home run as the top strikers on the East Coast and Mid-Atlantic went to battle.
