In his return to Sydney, we expect Spencer to make a powerful statement in the ring against Albert Xavier.

    Fighting out of Melbourne’s Absolute MMA, Xavier is the first Timorese Muay Thai World Champion and continues to represent the country in his fights around the world. He is a former two-time WBC State Lightweight Cha

  6. Spencer Brown Reflects on Loss against Singpayak

    Spencer Brown Reflects on Loss against Singpayak

    It has been 2 weeks since the memorable night of YOKKAO Next Generation Sydney. Spencer Brown faced and took a loss against former Channel 7 champion, Singpayak at the spectacular main event fight. In his interview with YOKKAO prior to the fight, Singpayak boldly claimed that he was “110%” confident of beating his opponent. The Thai fighter did exactly what he said he would do. There is a popular saying, “You either win or you learn”. Even those at the very top occasionally trip and fall. The same weekend, multitime champion Singdam took a loss in China against a younger fighter. This is the way of the fighting game. No one stays undefeated, not even the greatest fighters of all time. Muay Thai and combat sports in general, are unpredictable in nature - a wrong move can lead to devastating results. After a week of rest, Spencer is back at the YOKKAO Training Center Bangkok. Like a true warrior, he’s back on his feet and training at the gym with no time
