Now to be sponsored by them and have their support as I dive deeper into competition in 2014 both here in Australia and Internationally feels great.

CFC 18 Victory

Posted on | Comments Off

So I won my fight last night at CFC 18 against Mike Lim via guillotine choke 1:35s into the first round. Firstly, I’d like to give big props to Mike who came in as a replacement as my two previous opponents pulled out. Mike showed great heart and really took the fight to me from the get go which surprised me. Fortunately for me, my hard work at training paid off and I was able to defuse the situation and finish the fight. That’s one thing you need for this sport, a big heart, and he definitely has a massive one and will only get better. I had a good chat to Mike after the fight and I wish him all the best in the future. You’re a warrior mate regardless of the result.  Read more…

Sponsor: RVDDW – Reversal Australia

Posted on | Comments Off

Another special thanks and shoutout to Reversal Australia – RVDDW, who has kindly supported me for my upcoming fight at CFC 18 with some clothes and will have the privilege of me sporting their shorts. The privilege will definitely be more mine though as the shorts I’ll be wearing are great. To someone like me who is very picky with the shorts I wear into the cage as they need to be the right material, feel right on me, and won’t impede me in any way, I can happily say it passes on all fronts.  Read more…

One of the brands they stock which is co-sponsoring is I Am Senshi (warrior inspried fashion) based in the UK. Their designs are pretty cool and quite different from the usual MMA brands you get.

Thanks to Zeal Fightgear

Posted on | Comments Off

A special thanks to my sponsor for my ESPN Martial Combat fight – Zeal Fightgear based in Singapore. Gabriel who is one of the co-owners of Zeal Fighgear and was able to quickly print up some very nice looking walkout tees for both myself and Josh on the day of my fight.

Both mine and Josh’s shirts had our own fight names on them which was good. Zeal Fightgear have made some really sweet MMA sparring gloves which I got a chance to look at when I was in Singapore and I’ll be receiving some soon to try out. Am looking forward to these gloves as they’re small like MMA gloves are, yet the extra padding is perfect for harder sparring without having to use 14oz gloves. Will write up a review when I try them out.

Hopefully I get a chance to fight in Singapore again to have a chance to promote Zeal Fightgear once again.

CFC14 Opponent Update: Karnage vs Edwin Arana

Posted on | Comments Off

My initial opponent for CFC 14, Dallas Lennon has had to pull out of the fight this coming Saturday due to a staph infection. I know it sucks to have to pull out so close to a fight, and staph is never fun, so I wish Dallas a speedy recovery.

In his place, Edwin Arana from QLD has accepted to take the fight. I’ve already had one teammate miss out on fighting this weekend due to his opponent pulling out too, and the promoter unable to find him a replacement, so he was super bummed about it, but I’m happy all my training will not go to waste a least and I still have a fight.

Edwin last fought on Brace for War 4 against Tyson Kroehn where Edwin won a three round war via TKO. From what I know he is a tough fighter so it should be a very good fight on Saturday.

Also, as a special promotion by EverythingMMA for this coming fight you can receive a 30% discount off all purchases up until June 5th when you use coupon code “KIAN”, so take advantage of the offer while you can. www.everythingmma.com.au
