Take-ON $10,000 Tournament

I got this notice from Take On Promotions and it looks like big things are happening in New York.  Yes there is indeed real Muay Thai on the east coast of the United States but it honestly isn’t well publicized or too much of it goes on largely unnoticed.  I am going to make my own endeavors to correct that oversight.

I like the looks of this event for two reasons: 1. Not much in the way of independent sanction pandering that I can detect (just a small notification that WKA sanctions these fights)and 2. The much neglected 140lbs weight class will be showcased where I always felt the competition internationally is at it’s best and most contested.  The poster pretty well cover all the particulars anyone may want or need to see the fight and get tickets so I am just going to break down some of the card that I know about.

Fighting single ‘super fight’ bouts are:

Eddie Martinez(5 Points) vs. Ben Yelle(Swanson Muay Thai)

Gaius Ebratt(5 Points) vs. Elijah Clarke(Renzo Gracie)

Jay Matias(Sitan Gym NY) vs. Mohammed Lemjerdine(CT’s Finest)

Marcus Fisher(Pittsburgh Muay Thai) vs. Kyle Hillman(Cool Hearts)

Jessica Ng(Sitan Gym NY) vs. Min Goodspeed(CT Combat Center)

The140lbs. Tournament fighters are:

Gabriel Varga(Varga Muay Thai,CANADA)

Justin Greskiewicz(Cool Hearts Muay Thai)

Omar Ahmed(Sitan Gym NY)

Mark Deluca(Pittsburgh Muay Thai)

Terrence Hill(Bellemore MMA)

Kevin Molina(Molina MMA)

Turan Hasanov(Borodins)
