Results and Recap: Matter of Pride

WCK: Matter of Pride took place Sunday November 14, 2012 at the Plaza Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. The event was a mix of Muay Thai and Wulingfeng bouts. In the main event Jemyma Betrian defeated Tiana Caverley by unanimous decision to take home the WBC Muay Thai Bantamweight World Title. It was a fairly one sided fight as Betrian was able to land her strikes at will. All three judges scored the bout 50-45 in favor of Betrian.

In the co-main event Zeqi Deng scored an upset over Lerdsila Chumpairtour. Deng took home a split decision over Lerdsila, a bout many expected Lerdsila to win. Deng fought smart and stuck to his game plan while Lerdsila might have hurt himself by show boating a little too much. It is big win for Deng and Lerdsila’s second consecutive loss.

In the WCK vs. Wulinfeng portion of the fight card both sides scored three victories a piece. For the Wulingfeng team Xifeng Tang defeated Lena Ovchynnikova by unanimous decision, Yinghua Tie defeated Artem Sharoshkin by unanimous decision, and Zhaoyu Zheng defeated Joe Davidson in a controversial (T)KO. Zheng connected with a low blow on Davidson who was then unable to continue and the victory was awarded to Zheng.
