It’s not often you see a 36-year-old make an MMA debut, but three-time WBC muay thai champion Fabio Pinca will do just that.
After collecting 100 total wins in muay thai and kickboxing, the French-Italian makes the transition to MMA. Since his last match more than two years ago, Pinca has worked on his ground game in preparation for the 9-6 Shannon Wiratchai, who will be Pinca’s first opponent under the ruleset less familiar to him.
American prospect makes his ONE debut
Twenty-eight-year-old American Quitin Thomas opens the No Surrender III card when he takes on Ben Royle in a featherweight clash.
The Florence, South Carolina, native was a decorated amateur before turning pro earlier this year. He amassed a 14-2 record, highlighted by a gold medal at the 2017 IMMAF World Championships of Amateur MMA.
Since then, Thomas relocated to Thailand where he trains under Tiger Muay Thai. He made his pro debut last January, winning by second-round TKO. We’ll see how he fares against a 4-1 Royle.
