The Leone Brothers want to take Asia by storm

There’s always something a little special when two brothers push each other and compete in the same combat sport – It could possibly be that there is no better competition than your on blood… meaning they will push each other more than anyone else can push them.

There are some incredibly fine examples of this in MMA already;

Fedor and Aleksander Emelianenko

Nick and Nate Diaz

Ken and Frank Shamrock

Mauricio (shogun) and Murillo Rua 

Rodrigo and Rogerio Nogueira 

Alistair and Valentijn Overeem

and that’s just to name a few!

Well Asia has just picked up a pair of Pro MMA fighting brothers Andrew and Anthony Leone.

Andrew (10-1) 5-1 as a Pro is a Road FC and ONE FC fighter – who this week will be fighting for the Road FC Bantamweight title (Andrew  normally fights at Flyweight).

Anthony Leone is 11-5 pro fighter a Strikeforce and WEC veteran and now currently a Bellator fighter (Bantamweight contender).

These two brothers have already gained a reputation for some very good wrestling skills that have combined with slick Jiu Jitsu, clean hands and above all – these two brothers have Heart.

Andrew was the first of the brothers to make the move to Phuket, Thailand and his new gym Phuket Top Team.

Following this Anthony became interested in the transition to Asia and Thailand as his brother was talking about the great training and style of life and living available.

So now older brother Anthony has decided to make the move out to Phuket Top Team to join the already growing roster of fantastic talent at the gym.

The two brothers will join a team that includes JJ Ambrose (bellator) Rodrigo Praxedes (ONE FC) Adam Kayoom (ONE FC) Dorian Price (UFC and TUF veteran) Will Chope (URCC) Arnaud Lepont (ONE FC) Brad Terrey and Scott Rogan (pro mma fighers) as well as visiting fighters Phil Baroni, Roger Huerta, James Mcsweeney and many more.

Both fighters look to take the Asian MMA scene to a new level. The competitive nature of the two will no doubt push not only each other, but the entire team at Phuket Top Team.

SO lets take a look at some footage of the brothers in action.
