That face says it all!! Dominance MMA Richmond fighter Van SmileAssassin H-Phan is the newest WBC State Champion after an outstanding performance on Rebellion Muaythai 21 // Roots 10: Sun Is Shining last Saturday, fighting alongside his team mates Ryan Sebastian Shepherd, Carter Lawrance and Riccardo Viaggia Tore.
Carter Lawrance is going from strength to strength and had his best performance yet on Roots, coming away with a commanding win against Jason from Team Pinky Muay Thai in Adelaide.
Riccardo Viaggia Tore fought with so much heart on Rebellion, landing a barrage of devastating kicks, but unfortunately copped a heavy elbow from opponent Reef Strutt which took him out of the fight.
Last but not least, our resident killer and newly crowned WBC State Champion, Van SmileAssassin H-Phan… What a show! Those head kicks were insane! Your focus and dedication to training, under the incredible guidance of Coach Oneal, has seen you grow into a confident and terrifyingly technical fighter and we are so proud to watch you come away with the title! Thank you to Kahow and the team at Immersion MMA for an awesome fight.
Thank you to all the #DominanceMuayThai crew who came out to support, and to Chatchai Torthienchai for helping out in the corner, and supporting our team!
To Sy Nadji, thank you for giving our guys the opportunity to represent on your promotion. Rebellion Muay Thai is without a doubt the best Muay Thai show in Australia and just keeps getting better.
Finally to Coach Oneal Ortega and our Muay Thai Mumma Tali Silbermann. Thank you for all that you do for the team. Coach Oneal goes above and beyond to make sure our fighters have every opportunity to succeed and all the hard work is paying off. What a crew you have built! And Tali, thank you for all that you do to support the guys in getting ready for their fights and on the day. This team wouldn’t be the same without you!
Congratulations to everyone and we can’t wait to see what the rest of 2019 brings!
