This two fighters are handled by Mark’s older brother Frank Striegl.
Mark Striegl is in Baguio City, Philippines right now rehabilitating his injured knee for his Featherweight title fight against Fransino Tirta in Legend FC 7. Although the date of their title fight is not yet confirmed by the Legend FC management, according to Mark Striegl it may happen on December.
Meanwhile, Koji Ando(5-2-2) is training real hard in Tokyo at Wajutsu Keishukai Gods for his Legend FC debut on October 3o, 2011 at City of Dreams, Macau against an undefeated Chinese fighter, Wang Guan.
Koji is riding a three fight winning streak coming to this fight. One of those three victories is against Hiraoki Sakuma who Koji demolished in just 26 seconds of the very first round via TKO (punches).
Tokyo native Ando has his martial arts origins in Judo, finishing in the top 8 in the All-Japan Judo Tournament as a high school student. His Judo roots led him first to Brazilian Jiujitsu, and from there to MMA. Ando now trains out of Wajutsu Keishukai, one of Japan’s best MMA gyms. Always seeking to perform to the best of his ability and proudly represent his team, he says that his goal is to show “the power and grit of Japanese MMA” in all of his fights.
A Sengoku veteran, Ando now calls the Legend Ring his home and is seeking to prove himself on this stage. Considered to be one of Japan’s top young lightweight prospects, fight fans should keep a close eye on Ando as he makes his mark.
Koji’s next assignment is to give Wang Guan his first career loss and will try to make a statement in the Legend FC‘s lightweight division.
