Muaythai Premier League Stars and Stripes Results: Buakaw, Levin, and Corbett Win

The Muaythai Premier League kicked off with their Stars and Stripes event in Long Beach, California on September 2nd in Long Beach, California.

The Muaythai Premier League brought top notch Muay Thai action to fans on Friday night in Long Beach, California. The newest promotion in international Muay Thai delivered with its long-awaited debut event, offering a fight card full of strong match ups and exciting finishes.

The event saw two World Muaythai Council title fights, while the rest of the bouts were for the Muaythai Premier League's ongoing tournaments across five weight classes. With a full event and the first set of round-robin bouts in the books, the MPL is already showing a good amount of promise.

The main event of the evening saw Buakaw Por. Pramuk take a fourth round stoppage win over Warren Stevelmans, in a bout contested for the WMC world junior middleweight title. Warren Stevelmans was able to land with punches in spots through the first three rounds of the fight, but was simply without answer to Buakaw's array of kicks. The Thai standout warmed up through the first round and really got things going from there. The end came as Stevelmans was knocked down by a push kick in the fourth round. The bout was somewhat questionably waved off as Stevelmans went to the canvas.

Baxter Humby quickly finished Zidov Domenik to win the World Muaythai Council intercontinental junior middleweight title in the other super fight of the evening. Humby cut Domenik also immediately and was able to finish the bout inside the first round with a spinning back kick tucked under the Croatian's guard. Domenik, who competed on The Contender Asia, rolled around in obvious distress and was not able to answer the referee's count.

The rematch between Nieky Holzken and Marco Pique ended up being quite the Muay Thai bout, as both fighters were able to score points and engaged one another from start to finish. Pique employed a strategy similar to the one Artur Kyshenko used to be get past Holzken in May, intelligently throwing body shots early on. Meanwhile, Holzken was able to land with a varied attack and looked to have openings for a counter left hook throughout the fight. The bout was closely contested through two rounds, and it was only when Nieky Holzken dropped Pique with a barrage of strikes that the result seemed clear. Pique returned to his feet, but Holzken landed a number of strikes including a flush uppercut to close out the fight.

It's Showtime and WBC Muay Thai champion Artem Levin kicked off the organization's light heavyweight action with a third round stoppage over David Keclik. Levin kept his hands low throughout the bout, landing well and reinforcing the notion that he was ahead of the competition on the night. The end came as the Russian champion decided to throw a jumping knee midway through the third round. The knee landed, Keclik was down, and the bout was waved off nearly immediately.

Australian Muay Thai favorite Nathan Corbett was able to stop Tomas Hron inside the first round of their heavyweight contest. Corbett looked dominant from the start, handcuffing Hron with combination punching and knocking him down with a left hook. The Australian followed with an elbow that cut Hron open, dropped him again and the bout was over in short order.

Golden Glory's Filip Verlinden put on an excellent, quick performance against Martin Jahn. With Alistair Overeem in his corner, Verlinden came out immediately blasting Jahn with straight punches. Verlinden practically landed at will, and rounded out his attack with elbows and high kicks as the round progressed. While Jahn made it to the bell at the end of the first round, he was well bloodied and the fight was called.

Denis Schneidmiller and Mehdi Zatout fought to a split decision in one of two welterweight bouts on the evening. Zatout looked the better fighter early, landing well with kicks and throwing his German opponent to the canvas repeatedly. Schneidmiller was able to capitalize on a touch of showmanship from Zatout however, tagging him in the second round and carrying momentum through the second half of the bout. Zatout continued to throw and land a number of kicks, but Schnedmiller repeatedly pushed forward and responded with combinations to the French fighter's body. In the end, Schneidmiller found himself on the right side of the split decision.

Full results after the jump.
