Rachael Cummins is Koast Kombat’s newest Ring Girl. But don’t let her gorgeous looks fool you, because Cummins is also a fierce competitor in the cage as an amateur Mixed Martial Arts fighter. Her drive and dedication to this sport makes her an amazing addition to our team.

Name: Rachael Cummins
Age: 26
Location: Lake Forest, California
Height: 5’9”

How do you stay fit? I stay fit by training Jiu Jitsu 5 days a week. Along with Sparring, Wrestling, and lifting weights throughout each week.

What are your hobbies? My favorite hobby is jiu jitsu. I love competing in tournaments. And I train everyday; the best is when I tap out the guys.

What is your current occupation? My current occupation is High School boy’s volleyball coach at University High School. And I go to school for radiology.

What is the best thing about modeling? The best thing about modeling is being able to show your sexy side. I train everyday with my hair up and no makeup. It’s nice to put some heels on and have your hair and makeup done.

Who has inspired you the most? My parents have inspired me the most because they have always pushed me through sports and have never missed anything. With them by my side, I feel like I can achieve a lot more things.

Beach bum or snow bunny? Beach bum or snow bunny is a tough choice. I would probably lean more towards beach bum because I love the summer and being in my bikini. But I do also love to snowboard as well.

Lace or Leather? That’s also very tough and I would have to pick both. I like leather to show your wild sexy and side, but lace is also sexy in a sweet way.

Jeans or dress? Dress! I love dresses! I could wear one everyday.

Heels or sandals? Well I wear heels on the weekends always. But I wear sandals everyday during the week considering I train everyday on the mats.

What is your ideal romantic date? My ideal romantic date would be a surprise. I love surprises. I love to eat near the ocean where you hear the waves crash and am surrounded by candlelight. And maybe a nice back massage on the beach since I might be a little sore from training.

What are your future goals? My goals right now are to finish school, and to get into Strikeforce eventually and to be one of the top 125 pound fighters.

What’s your favorite sport? My favorite sports are MMA, Volleyball, Basketball

Who is your favorite fighter? My favorite female fighter is Marloes Coenen, and my favorite male fighter is Mark Munoz.

What is one thing that you want to be remembered by? One thing that I want to be remembered by is being a great all around athlete.

Who is someone that you look up to in your industry? I look up to all of the women that are the top fighters. It’s not easy being a girl in this sport. People don’t think you’re tough, or guys don’t take you serious at first and you have to really show people how serious you really are. This is the hardest sport mentally that I have ever done in my life, but no one said it would be easy. But I’m ready.

What is something that most people do not know about you? Most people meet me and don’t know I can fight too but looks are deceiving.

Is there anything else that you want to add? I want to shout out to REIGN Training Center in Lake Forest, for all the amazing training and really helping me get to where I am now.

M-One Grand Muay Thai Championship

13 10 2011

Thai Boxing Inc. and M-One Grand Muay Thai proudly bring to you “USA vs. Thailand” on October 21st at Club Nokia, Downtown Los Angeles. This follows a historic event for M-One, who brought us living legend Saenchai Sinbimuaythai to fight against America’s poster boy, Kevin Ross, for the first-ever WBC Muay Thai Diamond belt. This show proves to be no different since for the first time in 25 years the top American fighters will be facing off against Thai world champions.

The main event features Muay Thai’s version of Mike Tyson, Joe “Stitch ‘em Up” Schilling vs. the “Giant Killer” Kaoklai Kaennorsing for the WBC Muay Thai Light Heavyweight World title. Joe is a non-stop, aggressive fighter that loves to push forward and use his elbows to end the fights early. He has won his last 5 bouts by knockout and is looking to shock the world. Kaoklai Kaennorsing is the former K1 Asia champion and former WBC Muay Thai World champion. Kaoklai has over 150 wins and comes in as the heavy favorite. He will be looking to use his experience and solid technique against Schilling. This fight has all the makings to be an instant, unforgettable classic.

The night’s co-main event includes America’s poster boy Kevin “The Soul Assassin” Ross who is coming off a legendary performance against Saenchai and will now be facing current Lumpinee Stadium champion Sakkedao Petchpayathai for the WBC Muay Thai Super Lightweight title. Kevin has worked his way up by fighting the world’s best and now gets his chance at a world title. His colorful character and “never die” attitude make him a fan favorite. Sakkedao is the last man to beat the legendary Saenchai, and is eager to make his U.S debut by defeating Saenchai’s last opponent in his own backyard and taking the title back to Thailand.

Also on the card is American Romie Adanza as he faces Thailand’s rising star Langsuanlek Sasiprapa for the MTAA World Flyweight title. Romie has a small frame but a huge heart. Fans love to cheer for him because when all the odds are stacked against him he finds a way to pull out the victory. Langsuanlek is a tall and lengthy fighter who loves to use his elbows and knees and also loves pressing the action. This fight promises to be fireworks and non-stop action from beginning to end.

As if that weren’t enough, MTAA World Champion “Thailand’s Terminator” Rungravee Sasiprapa and French fighter Yetkin Ozkul will meet in the ring for an epic rematch. Rungravee’s first fight in the U.S. had the Muay Thai community talking about it for months afterwards, and we feel it is only right to treat you with his presence once again. Rungravee’s ferocious style against Ozkul’s flashy footwork brings together the best of both worlds. Whichever fighter wins or loses, fight fans will come out victorious after watching these two perform the art of eight limbs in the ring.

The last Pro bout of the night features Fairtex Muay Thai’s Daniel Kim whose recent victory was an impressive third round knockout. He will be facing Nate Chambers of Hyena Muay Thai, Las Vegas. Chambers will be making his pro debut and has proven to be an entertaining fighter in the amateur ranks. Now let’s see how he does when he adds elbows to his arsenal. This fight card is sure to elevate the standard of Muay Thai in the United States by bringing out the best American fighters to face the originators of the sport from Team Thailand. Support your local Muay Thai!

The undercard features:

Jesse Magusen vs Oscar Sanchez

Josh Aragon vs Alex Numinski

Eduardo Alvarado vs Niko Ruiz

Gaston Bolanos vs Roman Garido

Koast Kombat’s Chris Cisneros

Photo and Report by: Breanna Armstrong

Chris Cisneros
Professional MMA Record: 13-3
Weight: 170
Height: 5’11”
Hometown: Hilo, Hawaii

Chris “The Maverick” Cisneros has been active in Martial Arts since he was 13 years old, when he started to compete in Amateur Boxing. With a professional Mixed Martial Arts record of 13-3, he is not only explosive inside the cage, but he has a lot of heart outside of the cage as well. Cisneros recently fought in Bellator 49′s main event against Ben Saunders in New Jersey, on September 10, 2011. Cisneros took the fight against Saunders as a last minute replacement. Though he fought hard, Saunders defeated Cisneros in the third round. But this loss is not going to stop the Hawaiian from achieving his goals.

He has a positive reputation on the islands for being a great fighter of substance and has what it takes to fight for the larger organizations. His drive is what motivates him. He is the first athlete to be sponsored by Koast Kombat and he is set to train at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas, for his next fight.

“My ultimate goal is to be a UFC Champion. I just want to make a statement to the MMA world that Hawaii has a lot of talent, and they shouldn’t be overlooking this state,” says Cisneros.

For updates on his training camp, check back in with us to see what he is up to on the mainland!

The MPL “Stars and Stripes” Recap and Results

Friday night, The MuayThai Premier League (MPL) made history by delivering one of the best Muay Thai events to ever take place in the United States. With a star-studded fight card, this event was packed with some of the best fighters in the sport. The excitement was in the air all over the arena: the explosive walk-out entrances, the crowd full of celebrities, and fights that could only be seen once in a lifetime.

Until Buakaw Por. Pramuk walked onto the platform for his entrance, many thought they would never see him fight in this country. But, the greatest Thai fighter in the world went above and beyond to leave his mark on American soil. His chilling entrance into the ring had all that attended out of their seats.

Tension was high after Buakaw finished his aggressive Wai-Kru that clearly disturbed his opponent, Warren Stevelmans, who was fighting from The Netherlands. In round one, Buakaw and Stevelmans took their time in the ring but towards the end of the round Stevelmans delivered a kick to Buakaw’s head that was countered with the Thai fighter running after his opponent to release a flying knee. This set the pace for the remainder of the fight until it ended in round four. Buakaw sent the worn out Stevelmans to the ground with a push kick, forcing the referee to stop the contest.

The “One Arm Bandit,” Baxter Humby represented American Muay Thai as he quickly defeated Zidov Domenik with a huge spinning back kick KO at 1:40 into the first round. Humby’s kick earned him the WMC intercontinental title. The incredible finish has since flooded the Internet, setting fire with Muay Thai fans across the world.

Golden Glory’s Filip Verlinden also had a good first round victory against Martin Jahn. After a bloody cut to Jahn’s head the referee stopped the fight before the second round could begin.

After Verlinden's win

Also on the card was Verlinden’s Golden Glory Teammate Nieky Holzken, who went head-to-head against Marco Pique. Pique had lost to Holzken at SLAMM’s “Netherland vs. Thailand V,” in 2008. Although the fight was close, Holzken proved to be the better fighter once again and took the win by a majority decision.

Julie Kitchen, a crowd favorite, defeated Martina Jindrova with a unanimous decision. According to Kitchen, it was “a dream come true” to be fighting in California. She came to do what she is best at doing—winning.

The next part of The MPL series is set to take place in Amsterdam, continuing their commitment to deliver great Muay Thai fights around the world.

Michael Dicks defeated Leo Monteiro via Unanimous Decision
