Fight Circus: Camgirl site hosts 2 vs 1, man vs woman in weirdest freakshow MMA event

New, 46 comments

Watch CamSoda and Full Metal Dojo put on several insane match ups in Thailand.

Freakshow fights have long been part of MMA’s culture and history, with odd matchups typically brought in to draw in eyeballs to more legitimate talent. Thailand has upped the ante though, providing the weirdest event yet this past weekend.

Full Metal Dojo partnered with camgirl streaming website CamSoda, and produced the appropriately named “Fight Circus” event. Among its entire line up of oddities were a 2 vs 1 bout, style vs style open-weight match ups, and a man vs woman grappling match.

Here’s the promo to give you an idea on what they were going for:

Check out some of the clips below from the odd match ups they put on.

Two strawweight brothers took on a middleweight in an MMA bout:

The bigger fighter succumbed to the smaller fighters, losing by rear naked choke. In case that wasn’t wild enough, they decided to literally have an immediate rematch.

A bantamweight Muay Thai fighter took on a heavyweight boxer in a bout that had different rule sets per round. First round is boxing rules, second is Muay Thai, and third is MMA rules.

After being dropped in the boxing round, the bigger, but clearly out of shape boxer decided to call it quits on the Muay Thai round, immediately after he got kicked in the head.

There was also an intergender grappling match up:

There was a “kick fighting” bout that matched up a Muay Thai fighter and a Kyokushin Karate fighter.

Two Lethwei match ups were also on the line up, which for those who are unfamiliar, is basically bare knuckle Muay Thai, with headbutts. One of them produced this brutal elbow KO.

On the main event, two heavyweights battled in alternating rules bout, and fat jokes were thrown around aplenty.

As seen above, Fight Circus awarded golden swords or axes to the winner, while the losers received bongs — or based on the insane Thai marijuana laws, decorative glass ornaments.

Here are the results:

Heavyweight mixed rules: Steven Banks def. Sam Cassidy by decision

Super heavyweight vs Middleweight MMA: Hidetaka Arato def. Daniel Dorrer by decision

Two 115 lb brothers vs middleweight pro: Bank & No Money def Mikhail Vetrila via rear naked choke. Also wins instant rematch via TKO (punches)

Lethwei fight: Fabiano Hawthorne def. Kyoken Tampiyanan via KO (elbow)

Bantamweight Muay Thai fighter vs Heavyweight boxer in mixed rules: Chitnuphong Sommuttiram def. Tang Mo via TKO (head kick)

Female Lethwei fight: Po Chissakan def. Nattarat Prempida via decision

Two Buddies vs. Light Heavyweight Pro: (Cancelled)

Intergender Grappling: Woman beats Man via submission (RNC)

Kick Fighting: Kyokushin karate fighter def. Muay Thai fighter by TKO

Big Average Joe vs A Small Pro: Ali Mohammed def. Ryan Donnelly by decision

Also an interesting (and worrying) tidbit, is that there might just be a second iteration of this event in the future.
