Natural Born Killer bags another win in Singapore

Malik Arash Mawlayi returned to Resort World Sentosa last Wednesday to fight as the main event in Martial Combat 9. He submitted China based Thai fighter Arthit "Ah Ting" Hanchana in the second round, with an arm triangle. This was his second victory at Martial Combat against a muay thai based opponent. Once again he used his superior grappling and ground skills to secure a victory. Malik has been back in Sweden for a while, training hard, and all of Legacy are looking forward to him returning to Ubon some time next year.

Isamu Himura squared off against American Xavier Macay. It was his second appearance at Martial Combat and his first representing Legacy Gym. By all accounts, it was a close fight and this was reflected in the judges' scorecard, with the fight being scored as a draw - the first one in Martial Combat history. Isamu was very disappointed with the result, as he felt he clearly got the better of the ground fight.

The videos of both fights will be available in a couple of weeks, watch this space. Once again, pictures from ringside at Martial Combat come courtesy of Brett L. Thanks, mate!
