Diamond Fight Promotions: Singapore vs The World

On Saturday, October 18th at the Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore, Diamond Fight Promotions will throw a mixed fight card with MMA and Muay Thai bouts.  The main event of the evening is the 72kg WDFA World Title fight between Syafiq “The Slasher” Samad and the Philippine’s Jaypee Espinosa.  The Slasher is a 21-year-old fighter training with Juggernaut Fight Club in Singapore.  Syafiq is 3-1 in pro MMA with three finishes.  He also holds a victory over combat sports writer, James Goyder in a boxing bout.  Jaypee recently fought at PXC Laban on August 30th and is looking to get his first professional MMA win in his debut.

 

The main card features two veterans of the Asian MMA scene, Will “The Kill” Chope and Rodolfo “The Nightmare” Marques.  Rodolfo Marques lost in the semi-finals of the 2011 DREAM Bantamweight GP to eventual ONE FC Bantamweight Champion, Bibiano Fernandes.  Rodolfo went on to beat former UFC veteran Pedro Nobre in a hotly contested bout at Shooto Brazil B.O.P.E. 2.  A move to the AFC and a jump to 145lbs to fight Robert Lisita ended in an unfortunate KO loss for the Nightmare.  Rodolfo would go on to win his next two bouts, but lose his most recent bout to Alex Volkanovski at AFC 9.  Rodolfo is a Black Belt in BJJ and currently trains with Nova Uniao and Tate Boxing Gym.  Will Chope is 20-7 in his pro MMA career, currently training out of Singapore with Juggernaut Fight Club.  Chope went on a 14 fight winning streak that stretched almost two years and 12 finishes.  During that stretch, Chope collected the F-3, PXC and URCC titles.  Both men are ready for wherever this fight goes.

 

 

Also on the card, Juggernaut Fight Club fighter, Emilio Urrutia brings a 3-0 pro MMA record to this bout against the Super Fight League veteran, Yadwinder Singh.  Jian Kai Chee faces Jadison Costa and much more.

Tickets are available for purchase here.  The doors open at 6pm local time and the fights start at 7pm (5am EDT).  If you’re not able to make it to the event, you can catch all of the action with a live stream of the event.
