Mixed Martial Arts is a new thing to Thailand – however it has grown at a pace that is TRULY amazing. MMA Gyms have popped up in Phuket, Chian Mai, Bangkok and beyond.
The key essense has been muay thai / boxing and brazilian jiu jitsu.
That is fantastic, however Wrestling seems to be one key that has been lacking a little. With maybe 1 or 2 gyms having any wrestling.
Now Phuket Top Team in conjunction with ThailandWrestling.com is introducing Sambo/Collegiate/Freestyle wrestling to the MMA program.
So stay Tuned and watch this spot for more Wrestling news & video clips !
Awesome flow technique from PhuketTopTeam head MMA, Wrestling Phuket & Submission Grappling Coach Eric Uresk.
Starting from the rear waist lock, snap back the opponent to a bottom wrist ride.
Secure the chest to back & place the hook over top leg. Then using the free arm, create a post blocking the opponents free arm. Finally, secure the Kimura trap & pinch the knees for the Armbar finish.
Work gradually through the steps, watch the details & add this to your skill set.
‘Life Of A Fighter’ episode 1 – Ramona Pascual.
Ramona is a professional MMA Fighter for ROAD FC.
This series gives a true insight into some of the professional martial artists here at PhuketTopTeam MMA & Wrestling training Phuket.
The reality is not always smiles, victories & adoration. The life of a combat athlete is much harder than most will ever know. The path to becoming a champion is a path with regular setbacks.
With the right team & the right people around them, the true martial artist will always find a way to success.
One of the top future prospects at PhuketTopTeam MMA & Wrestling training camp Thailand is UK’s Brendan Loughnane.
A top 50 featherweight in the world with a very entertaining style of fighting.
Looking forward to the call up & future for Manchester’s top mixed martial artist.
A clash of distinct styles as Adrian “Hunter” Pang pressed forward relentlessly against a tentative Honorio ‘The Rock’ Banario. Pang hunted a finish with hands, low kicks and heavy body work. Honorio used evasive footwork & snapped off some nice counter kicks. The decision did not go Pang’s way & we hear a possible review will be considered by ONE Championship.
At 40 yrs of age & once after a vicious street attack Pang was told he would not fight again. Defying the odds Pang returned with full health & some big One Championship wins…. we don’t think Pang is done just yet. Pang once again was visiting PhuketTopTeam MMA & Wrestling training camp in Thailand to prepare for this fight under the coach Eric Uresk.

Zelim put in another great camp at PhuketTopTeam MMA & Wrestling training camp Thailand ahead of this fight, developing with Coach Roberto Flamingo & Coach Eric Uresk.
Just 23 years old the future is bright for the undefeated finisher.
