September is a busy month for Vuyisile Colossa, the man who is fast developing a reputation as the top Muay Thai fighter in the world of MMA. The main difference between the South African and most mixed martial artists from a stand up background is that his still competes in his original style of fighting at the very highest level and will be fighting in both disciplines in the space of a few weeks.
ONE Fighting Championship was the biggest Asian MMA event of the year and was witnessed by an audience of almost 7,000 people in the Singapore Indoor Stadium and many, many more watching around the world on an internet stream. The event was a phenomenal success and so was Colossa who put in one of the most impressive performances of his career to stop Sanda specialist Ma Xing Yue early in the first round.
Most men would have taken a few weeks off to enjoy the moment and reflect on a victory which will have been seen by more people than any other fight in his career. Not Colossa, he was back training two days later for a Muay Thai fight on September 25th which will see him take on Nishikawa Tomoyuk in the quarter finals of the Thai Fights >70 kgs tournament which also features two times K-1 winner Buakaw Por Pramuk.
