Cambodia had a trio of fighters representing the kingdom at regional martial arts events at the weekend – however all three suffered disappointing defeats on the road.
At ONE Championship: Call to Greatness, Cambodia’s Phnom Penh MMA prospect Khon Sichan was stopped by Rudy “The Golden Boy” Agustian in his flyweight mixed martial arts bout at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. At the same event, Bacchus Kun Khmer Champion Kong Sambo of Kingdom Fight Gym lost to Zhang Chenglong in his ONE Super Series kickboxing bantamweight match-up. After three closely-contested rounds, Zhang earned a split decision victory.
Across the region at WLC: Mighty Warriors in Mandalay, Myanmar, Nguyen Tran Duy Nhat defeated Cambodian Top Team fighter Pich Mtes Khmang in their World Lethwei Championship bout. A superb head kick knockout secured victory for the Vietnamese fighter.
