Description

Siala-Mou "Mighty Mo" Siligia (born October 8, 1970), fighting out of The Shark Tank, San Bernardino, CA. [1] is an American Samoan boxer, MMA fighter, and kickboxer with impressive knockout power. He has a deadly overhand right that has dropped many opponents, including the 7 ft 2 in, 364 lb Choi Hong-man. He is the K-1 World Grand Prix 2004 in Las Vegas Champion and the K-1 World Grand Prix 2007 in Hawaii 8-man tournament Champion.

Biography & Career

Mighty Mo made his K-1 debut on February 15, 2004 at "K-1 Burning" event in Japan against Hiraku Hori. He knocked out Hori at 1:22 in 4th round by right hook. After losing in semifinals at his first 8-man tournament in Las Vegas against fellow American Dewey Cooper, Mighty Mo made a huge comeback four months later at the Battle of Bellagio II, winning his first K-1 GP Championship by knocking out Brecht Wallis in 2nd Round at the tournament finals.

After a year off from K-1, he made his comeback on March 4, 2007 at Yokohama, Japan. His opponent was Choi Hong-man (218cm) from Korea who had never been knocked out before on his K-1 career until Mighty Mo (185cm) managed to land his trademark right overhand punch, winning the fight by KO at 0:50 KO in 2nd round. With this fight he holds the record for the "Biggest height difference wins (33cm)" resulting in a KO in favor of the shorter in K-1 history and possibly in kick-boxing as well as in boxing in history (Nicolai Valuev, 213cm, is only 28cm taller than Ruslan Chagaev - 185cm).

On April 28, 2007, Mo entered the K-1 World Grand Prix 2007 in Hawaii tournament as a heavy favorite. He knocked out all three of his opponents and earned himself a spot in the K-1 World GP 2007 Elimination in Seoul, Korea.[2]

Mighty Mo was originally supposed to face Mu Bae Choi in a MMA match at K-1 Dynamite! USA on June 2nd in L.A. California. But Choi was replaced at the last minute by Ruben Villareal. [3] Mighty Mo dominated Ruben "Warpath" Villareal forcing the referee to stop the fight at 1:33 of the 1st round.

Mighty Mo lost to Super Heavyweight Champion Semmy Schilt by UD at the K-1 Amsterdam GP. Semmy used his reach to keep Mighty Mo at bay, and Mo was unable to get in close enough to land his devastating overhand right. Rumors have surfaced that Mo was nursing a knee and hand injury stemming from his previous fights. Mighty Mo had fought 7 times in the last 4 months.

On August 11th in Las Vegas, he lost to Stefan "Blitz" Leko on points.

At the K-1 Final Eliminations 2007 on September 29, he has faced Choi Hong-Man again and lost via unanimous decision. During the fight, he was kicked in the groin and was inexplicably ruled a knock-down by the referee. The resulting point deduction contributed to the outcome of the fight.

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.
