Comments: For a lot of people in France, Farid Villaume is the most talented Muay Thai fighter the country has produced since the legendary Dany Bill.

Farid had the privilege to train as a kid with Thai instructors such as Lom Isarn, Lamkong or Soudareth. This is probably why Villaume is one of the few foreigners to fight exactly like a Thai.

Villaume reached the last King's Birthday tournament final, koed two Thai fighters in the same night while he had shin injuries, definitely one of his biggest achievements. Who knows what would have happened if during the last fight against Suriya (that Farid lost on decision), Thai officials wouldn't have shortened the last round of two minutes?

Villaume's almost perfect technique, added to good boxing skills, devastating punching power and an agressive, straight forward style makes him one of the most exciting Muay Thai fighters today. Many think he has more than it takes to fight in Superleague or K-1 Max, unfortunately management problems will probably always prevent him from showing the world how much of a fantastic fighter he is.

The best K-1 community online!

The focus is on building a community that offers more to the users than any other K-1 website. The focus is also on that the community should be totally user driven, with the users as main writers of content. Who would for example write a better fight report than a fan who actually was at the fight? Or who could write a more interesting fighter profile than the fan who loves and really knows about a fighter? We believe that this approach will lead to that fansofk1.com has the most interesting K-1 information.
