    New fight era dawns in Lion City RWS Martial Combat 2010

    SINGAPORE - Twenty fighters from 12 countries will display their full array of skills, and no doubt endure much pain, beginning tonight in the Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) Martial Combat 2010.

    The event is Asia's biggest mixed martial arts (MMA) championship. This is the first time an official MMA event is held here.

    The full-contact sport meshes the best moves from boxing, wrestling, Muay Thai, Brazilian jujitsu and judo.

    Every month, there will be back-to-back fight nights held at the Compass Ballroom, Resorts World Convention Centre.

    The final two nights will be on Oct 15 and 16, which will see the final bout of the 2010 season. RWS have entered into a three-year partnership with ESPN STAR Sports to organise the event, and the championship will be broadcast to 24 countries across the continent.

    Said Andrea Teo, vice president of Entertainment at RWS: "We hope to bring lots of new vibrancy and great entertainment, build a new league of stars and see the birth of a sport that's new to the region."

    There will be five fights tonight, and tomorrow, American-born Mitch Chilson will carry the Singapore flag in the main event against Taiwan's K1 champion, Zhang Jing Xiong. Said the 32-year-old Muay Thai specialist and instructor: "For the past three months I've been involved in an intense camp to hone my MMA skills.

    "The sky's the limit for me, it's a lifetime of work right here and I'm ready for this one." Philip Goh

    The Dragon enters Singapore combat cage

    SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Fired up and furious, "The Dragon" prowled the dressing room as the seconds ticked down toward his turn to fight in the cage.

    Fists, feet, elbows and knees thudded into the coach's training pads as Mitch Chilson worked up his fight sweat.

    His coaches and cornermen, eyes narrowed searching for flaws, looked on quietly, proudly, anxiously. They had invested much in Chilson. Walking away without the Martial Combat Superfight title was not an option.

    In a former life Chilson had been a male model. But standing here, shorn of his smile and stripped down to bare bone, muscle and heart, it was clear he belonged to the fight world.

    "Time to go, Mitch," said coach Chatri Sityodtong. "Time to fight."

    And with that Chilson was up on his toes, the whole room rising with him, emotional outbursts of Thai, Brazilian Portuguese and English filling the air.

    An embrace for his fight team, quiet words of encouragement from his coaches and then he gone, 2,000 fans greeting his arrival on the lonely walk to the cage.

    Chilson v Zhang Jing Xong, a Taiwanese sando expert, was Thursday's final fight on Martial Combat's two-day mixed martial arts (MMA) card.

    Most of the event's fights had failed to make it beyond the first round, the capacity crowd treated to haymaker knockouts, a series of submissions, one dislocated elbow and the gut-wrenching sight of a South Korean fighter choked unconscious.

    Chilson controlled the early action, taking Zhang to the mat and setting up the 'ground and pound'. By the end of the third round the Taiwan fighter's face was a puffy, bloody mess as Chilson worked to the dominant position astride Zhang's chest and rained down a barrage of brutal elbows.

    Early in the fourth, Chilson unloaded a right hand to Zhang's jaw that sent him spinning to the floor, his eyes rolling back in his head.

    "That was incredible, 25 years of martial arts and I've never experienced anything like that," Chilson told Reuters after the fight, still cradling the shiny championship belt while tenderly checking the bones in his nose.

    "I thought I was going to submit him, that was the game plan. Take him down, soften him up with elbows and finish him with an armbar."

    Chilson had several opportunities to finish the fight with an armbar, a lock that puts intense pressure on the elbow and can lead to breaks or dislocation, but Zhang would not tap out.

    "I thought I was going to have to rip his arm off," said Chilson.

    This is pretty cool, I hope to see the sport of mixed martial arts grow even more in Asia
