Korean Top Team is one of powerhouse teams in Asian MMA. KTT is the home of the fast-rising UFC fighters such as welterweight prospect and the former PXC welterweight champion, Lim Hyun “The Ace” Gyun and the heavy-handed Dongi “The Ox” Yang. It is also the former gym of “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung.
KTT continues to produce world-class talents as the South Korean-based fight team will compete at one of the most exciting MMA promotions in Asia, the Pacific Xtreme Combat (PXC).
Two of the best KTT fighters will be seen in action on Saturday, May 18th, at the Ynares Sports Arena, Pasig City, Philippines, for the much-anticipated PXC 37.
PXC-37 will feature 8 professional bouts on May 18th at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City, and will be nationally televised LIVE on AKTV via IBC-13 on Saturday night. The event features some of the region’s best fighters from Japan, South Korea, Guam, Hawaii, and the Philippines.
One of the youngest fighters from KTT, at 23 years old, Hong Seung Chan is arguably the most physically powerful fighters in the PXC and one of the best grapplers in the lightweight division. He loves taking his opponent down, use his wrestling skills and finish them with deadly ground and pound.
On Saturday, Seung Chan will make his third PXC appearance and looks to stay unbeaten as he takes on a very tough Hawaiian fighter, Reno Remigio.
According to KTT’s head coach, Dongjin Ha, Hong Seung Chan’s preparations for this fight is fantastic.
“Seung Chan’s training is good. He is very strong right now; I think he will knock his opponent out. He is one of the best young fighters in our gym.”
Another KTT fighter is set to compete this weekend as “The Beast” Jang Yong Kim faces Hawaiian featherweight prospect, Nate Thorell for the semi-finals of the four-man featherweight tournament.
Kim is a remarkable fighter with very good ground game. He is a world-class fighter and he looks to get back to his winning ways when he faces Thorell.
Dongjin Ha believes that Kim will submit Thorell and advance to the tournament finals.
“Jang Yong Kim is a world-class fighter. He is very strong and very athletic. I just don’t get it that sometimes when he fights, there are fights that he is winning but when he gets punched hard in the face, he is getting tagged easily and lose it. But he is a very strong fighter and he is ready to beat Thorell.”
We can expect more KTT fighters who are going to be signed by the PXC and UFC in the years to come as they are slowly becoming the best MMA fight team in South Korea and arguably in whole of Asia.
PXC 37 will feature a world bantamweight championship between Crisanto “The Slugger” Pitpitunge and the undefeated Japanese submission specialist, Michinori Tanaka.
The first-ever Singaporean fighter to be signed by the PXC, Syafiq “The Slasher” Abdul Bin Samad battles fighter/model from Brazil, Wesley Machado.
Also, two more Team Lakay fighters will showcase their talets as Jerome Wanawa, after his recent loss agaist Eugene Toquero, looks to redeem himself as he battles Fight Work MMA’s Ernesto Montilla Jr. Troy “The Hunter” Bantiag continues to hunt to get himself into the bantamweight title picture when he lock horns with very intimidating fighter in Trevin Jones.
The former King of the Cage lightweight champion and the current King of Pancrase featherweight champ, a seasoned veteran, Takumi Nakayama will make his PXC debut against Johnny Pecyna.
