DARE 2/11 BANTAMWEIGHT FIGHT
Dare Fight Sports is proud to present the first Bantamweight fight (57 – 61 kilos) of the DARE 2/11 event, at Club Insomnia Bangkok on September 24th:
LEK -Robert Lek VS NUAY – Saengchot Parkaiphet.
It’s Thai vs Thai as two highly experienced Muay Thai fighters do battle in the DARE cage.
Both have several hundred Muay Thai fights under their belt and a number of regional titles but will be stepping inside the cage for the very first time.
They will be representing two of Thailand’s top MMA academies, Ole Laursen’s Legacy gym and the recently opened Phuket Top Team and both will have been working hard on their ground games in preparation for this contest.
The winner of the fight will proceed to the Quarterfinal level of DARE Championship and will be one step closer to becoming the first DARE Bantamweight Champion.
LEK – Robert Lek was a trainer at Tiger Muay Thai for several years before moving into the Phuket Top Team. He has been fighting regularly at the stadiums in Phuket and picking up a number of titles in the process.
He only recently decided to dedicate himself to MMA full time but the word from Phuket is that he is an extremely dedicated student who is learning very fast. He made his first foray into the world of MMA with a bout in China in which he gave a good account of himself en route to a decision loss and he is determined to post his first ever MMA win at DARE 2/11.

Here are the thoughts of veteran MMA journalist James Goyder,
“I love it when you get two Muay Thai fighters in the cage together because you know it is not going to be a boring fight.
These fighters might have a decent understanding of the ground game but they are going to be much more comfortable staying on their feet and exchanging strikes and that’s the stuff which exciting MMA fights are made of.
At the first Dare event Ngoo Ditty and Daniel Mashamaite, who are both outstanding Muay Thai practitioners put on the fight of the night and I can see exactly the same thing happening in this contest ” he said.
