    every thing I have read says petrosyan vs nattawat is under international kickboxing rules in a ring and nong-0 vs pinca is 3 round modified muaythai with mma gloves in a cage.

    I also find it really weird evolve signed up all their thai trainers except there youngest one penake sitnumnoi

    Maybe Petro doesn't want to fight mt rules with mma gloves and maybe Penake doesn't want to fight anymore.

    Im aware he probably does not want mma gloves with his hand problems but it is weird he will not fight muaythai rules anymore but still comes out in a mongkol

    pornsanae left evolve after a month or two. I also pray they don't book him for a fight just for his health as even after that long time off he still could not take a decent shot anymore in his last fight for knockout in japan

    LOL @ Petro with MMA gloves. His hands would break in the pre fight fist bump...

    that fight was depressing to watch. You never know what fight promoters will come up with.

    Pornsanae vs. Sakuraba.

    Neither does Petboonchu. Not the best indicator.

    I totally agree with that statement and with that said it was obviously a joke like when people call him legendary. Petch and Smokin Jo are no where near the same level. Not even sure if Smokin Jo even has any top 10 wins since it's so hard to find anything about who he's fought aside from the recent appearances in Lion Fight and fights he's taken in China.

    Dude come on we're talking about a Lion Fight champion. Tried, tested, and approved. Nata wut? the hell you talking about? Smokin' Jo is a legend of the past and present. An ambassador so to say for premiere Muay Thai excellence. Either get on board, or get on over. You're either smoking with him, or getting smoked by him. The choice is yours...

    Not going to lie, I'm a bit excited.

    I'd imagine they'll use the cage rather than the reconstructable ring/cage set-up that Bellator uses.

    Fans will be treated to the most exciting kickboxing matches where the best face the best inside of both our ring and our cage. Some matches will be under standard international kickboxing rules in our ring, and other matches will be under modified hybrid striking rules in our cage.

    Petrosyan is NOT fighting with MMA gloves. Period.

    Exhiting news btw. This roster already has more win that all the Bellator Kickboxing cards together

    That was their Masterplan the whole time. Get a lot great Muay Thai Fighters as Coaches and then later sign them to fight in their promotion....

    They still earn their money as trainers and get additional money from rather easy fights without working their ass off and without the pressure of a thai gym and gamblers.
    Win win for the fighters as well imo.

    One FC has always been hugely biased towards Evolve MMA fighters. Half the reason they probably set up this kickboxing league is to promote their mt trainers.
