WCK Muay Thai October 2nd, 2010

WCK Muay Thai has been pretty busy again throwing basically back to back cards in the USA.  Its good to see this kind of a busy circuit from them especially with the busy hub of activity that has been going on with them and the Chinese Wu Lin Feng events.  It’s apparent to me the international flavor of the event is again being emphasized with fighters being brought in once again from China, Korea and fairly diverse cross sections of the United States including Pennsylvania’s Eric Utsch and New Mexico’s Terris James.

James has in the past fought high level opponents such as Duane Ludwig, Adam Higson and participated in the now defunct by all appearances Super League in Europe. His opponent Luis Bio has been kept busy fighting here in the USA as well as in China where he won pretty definitively. This will be an interesting match-up with James making his re-debut in an IKKC title match.

Utsch is a a former student of Melchor Menor but has now been under the tutelage of Fairtex USA home of the wooden man himself Jongsanan Fairtex. Utsch was formerly an MMA fighter who transitioned into Muay Thai fully. The full card known thus far is as follows:
