21/05/2012 Cape Town, South Africa
Another sold out electrifying Legendary Muaythai & MMA Fight Night by Dragon Power Promotions. The fights were fast and action packed, with 3 DL MMA fights and 5 UMF Muaythai Fights on the bill. We were privileged to have special guests that attended in the likes of: His Excellency, The Ambassador to Kazakhstan, Mr. Shirish Soni, Hollywood stars and many other celebrities. Sifu Kru Quentin 'Dragon' Chong then gave a short thank you speech for all that attended the event and helped make it the night the success that it was. The speech was followed by a jaw dropping performance by the World No.1 Ubuntu BBoys. The main event was the Dragon Legends MMA Vacant Middleweight Title Belt fight between Marcel 'Little Hammer' Teniers & Sihle 'Somnandi' Khuboni. What makes this belt so special is the design was chosen by none other than Randy 'The Natural' Couture, 6X time UFC Champ.
The event was opened by the always entertaining Amy Biehl Foundation traditional dancers and marimba players with the official start to the event beginning at 7:00pm.
A new feature of the Legendary Fight Nights is superbly made intro videos by Zoopy for the main card fighters for their walk-ins, Zoopy has been following International Martial Arts Superstar Icon & Youth Ambassador Quentin 'Dragon' Chong. There are three 90 second videos that were aired on the night: 1st "The Beginning of Dragon Power", 2nd Setting the record straight" & 3rd "House of 'The Dragon'". All of which can be viewed on www.zoopy.com/umfor m.zoopy.com/UMF .
