• Bae Myung Ho retains Legend Welterweight title at City of Dreams

    12 February 2012

    (Saturday, February 11, 2012) A full house at City of Dreams, Macau, tonight saw defending welterweight champion Bae Myung Ho of Korea defeat top contender, China’s Li Jingliang, by unanimous judges’ decision after three rounds in the main event of Legend 7. 

    In the bantamweight championship co-main event, which was also a rematch, Jumabieke Tuerxun (China) defeated Yao Honggang (China) by a closely contested split judges’ decision after three rounds of non-stop action. 

    In another memorable main card match, Legend middleweight newcomer Hideto Tatsumi’s (Japan) powerful striking and Judo proficiency were no match for Korean Yang Hae Jun’s counter-striking and wrestling, with Yang landing a knockout in 3:35 of the first round.

    The powerful strike earned Yang the Legend award for “Knockout of the Night.” 

    The main card fight between Bae and Li also earned “Fight of the Night” honors. Koji Ando of Japan earned the “Submission of the Night” award. 

    In the undercard’s Century Cup bout, Ji Xian of China escaped several near submissions to defeat Leonard Delarmino of the Philippines with a rear naked choke just before the first round came to a close. 

    “Tonight we saw the best MMA fighters in Asia-Pacific competing at the top of their game,” said Legend co-founder Mr. Chris Pollak. “Legend 7 was a great first event for 2012, and we have much more in store for the rest of the year.” 

    Legend 8 will be held March 30 in Jakarta.
