Evolve Fighter Profile: Yodsanan Sityodtong

WBA Boxing World Champion Yodsanan Sityodtong from the Evolve Fight Team will be making his professional MMA debut early next year at Martial Combat Fighting Championship.  He is a monster knockout artist with one of the highest knockout ratios in boxing history for any world champion.  Yodsanan has a boxing record of 58 wins against 3 losses with 48 knockouts.  His nickname is "Little Mike Tyson" for his aggressive fighting style and true one punch KO power.  Yodsanan is one of the biggest sports celebrities in Thailand and was recently voted as one of the top 3 Thai professional athletes in history.  In anticipation of his MMA debut, Yodsanan has been training 4 hours per day in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under the watchful eye of the Evolve BJJ Instructor Team and an additional 2 hours per day in Muay Thai under the Sityodtong Team in Singapore.

Yodsanan is not taking this transition lightly and he realizes that MMA is far more complex than the sport of boxing with many moving parts.  However, his long-term goal is to become an MMA World Champion in the future.  To his credit, he is currently the fittest fighter on the Evolve Fight Team in terms of cardio fitness.

"Yodsanan is freakishly strong for his size.  He is in superb athletic condition.  I can't imagine anyone under 59 kilos being able to hold him down on the ground for very long.  Once his BJJ technique catches up with his strength, he will be a handful for any professional MMA fighter.  We are working extensively on his positional defense and takedown defense.  Yodsanan is already well-versed in most of the submissions.  His work ethic is incredible.  My personal goal is to make sure that he becomes proficient in BJJ before he steps into the cage.  The rest of his game is on a completely different level.  I feel sorry for any of his MMA opponents at 59 kilos."
-Professor Rafael "Gordinho" Correa, Co-Leader of the Evolve Fight Team
