Yi Long Upsets Buakaw Amid Controversy

On Saturday, Nov. 5, Wu Lin Feng put on a rematch between two of China’s most popular kickboxers at Wu Lin Feng: The Fight of the Century 2.

In the main event of the evening, current Kunlun Fight Muay Thai champion and former two-time K-1 MAX champion Buakaw Banchamek fought China’s most popular fighter, Yi Long, the Shaolin Kung Fu Monk. Buakaw came out on top when the two previously met for the Wu Lin Feng 70-kilogram championship at a WLF event in June 2015. Buakaw had won 10 of his past 11 fights with his most recent win against France’s top lightweight Dylan Salvador at Kunlun Fight 53 in September.
