Black Tiger Coach Yao Honggang Wins Legend FC Bantamweight Title
Legend Fighting Championships is Asia's premier MMA fight show where the best MMA fighters from all around Asia and Australia converge to determine who is absolutely the best! On July 16, 2011, three (3) fighters from China Top Team / Black Tiger represented China and swept the mat with all wins, including the new Bantamweight Title belt!
Coming in as underdogs in their individual fights, Li Jingliang, Wang Sai and Yao Honggang shocked the Asian MMA scene with explosive performances and newly developed striking and wrestling skills that no one, especially their opponents, expected. Black Tiger instructor and long-time student of Coach Vince, Yao Honggang, powerfully dominated his Korean opponent with fast strikes, efficient takedowns and solid ground control to win the Legend FC Bantamweight Championship Title belt.
Li Jingliang, fighting veteran Muay Thai fighter Alex Niu, also showcased his new Muay Thai skills to win the bout convincingly and advance to a top contender spot for the Welterweight title. Wang Sai, likewise, coming from a prior loss, advanced his rankings with a dominant performance leading to a TKO.
The coaches for China Top Team, BJJ Professor Ruy Menezes and Muay Thai Master Vince Soberano, were among the proudest that night as they watched the fighters that they taught, trained and trusted deliver victory after victory back to the team.
The China Top Team and Black Tiger partnership makes the team the most dominant MMA pro team in the country, as well as the most sought-after coaches for rising MMA stars in China. China Top Team / Black Tiger now has produced to only two international champions in mainland China: Zhang Tiequan, who won the URCC middleweight title belt, and Yao Honggang, who now is the Legend FC Bantamweight champion.
