Resorts World Sentosa Martial Combat

When I first got the invite to the Resorts World Sentosa Martial Combat, I didn’t expect it to be real fighting. I grow up watching that wrestling show on TV which used to have the same acronym as World Wildlife Fund. To me, most of these fighting are scripted. The punches are fake and the winners decided before hand. So I thought it’s going to be one of those fake punching fights “performance”.

It is only when I reach Resort World Sentosa that day did I realise that I’m in for real fighting that night. (I bet Victor and Clauds were laughing at me when I told them that I thought it’s a staged performance) Real punch, real kick, real bruises and real blood. Oh yeah, there are blood. It’s not like those staged wrestling where they can fight 10 to 20 minutes without any bruises and blood.

RWS Martial Combat is the only Mixed Martial Arts event officially recognized and sanctioned by two of the world’s leading governing bodies in the martial arts scene, the Asian Mixed Martial Arts Federation (AMMAF) and the World Martial Arts Federation of Singapore. Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a combination of the various martial art forms, including muay thai, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, boxing and wrestling. Which means you get to see different fighting style in the ring.

It was a great event. Lots of action. I must say that the fights had me on the edge of my seat for the whole evening. The only disappointing thing is that some of the fights ended pretty fast. But then, it is because of a well planned strategy which resulted in fast victory. The best match that night is the one between Isamu Himura and Brian Choi.

There is a total of 12 event series from May to October 2010 comprising of 60 fights. If you are interested in catching Resorts World Sentosa Martial Combat, there will be 2 matches happening soon on 14 & 15 July at Resorts World Sentosa. Check out the official website for the fight schedule and SISTIC or RWS website for ticketing info.

  1. DK! You are so lucky to be able to watch it… I have been thinking to buy the tixs to give a surprise date to my bf who has a burning passion for martial arts! He also fought in competitions before, but maybe not as good as these fighters. LOL LOL!
    Still trying to get an idea which fighters he prefer to watch mann…. If one of them is as awesome as manny pacquiao, then ‘mian gong liao’ (hokkien) I know which fight to book tixs for already. Hehehe.

  2. Feliza: Actually, most of the fights are quite good. But I’ll avoid fighters who are skilled in “Submission”. These people can usually end the fight quite fast and there isn’t much action 😛

  3. Hello! i’m intending to get cat 2 tickets, can you advise me which section of cat 2 shld i choose to get good views(:

  4. jasmine: If you are getting Cat 2, try somewhere closer to the Stage. (VA or VF if you are looking at SISTIC map) That’s where the fighters walk out and 2 huge TV are located.
    Note that Cat 1,2 and 3 are on flat ground. So you might want to get seats that are closer to the front so that you don’t get blocked.
