DARE 1/12: PICS + SHORT RECAP

I know the results have been out since late Saturday and the press release sent yesterday but it's never a quick thing to edit 1000 pics down to just under 300 covering 7 fights from last weekend's DARE 1/12. The third edition to the leading MMA event in Thailand, the DARE team has come together nicely as things ran smoothly and without delay. Outside of the headlining match, the fighters were not as recognizable in the SEA scene compared to those in DARE 2/11 but all gave an awesome performance.

Thai fighters out of Chiang Mai are showing strong with improved ground skills, quickly taking things to the mat while the seasoned foreigners standing toe-to-toe and punching it out. The standout fights fro me was "Ronin vs Mad Dog", "Jon Nutt vs the Latino" and "BK vs Daiju Takase". While there was no shortage of 'gameness' in any of the evenings fights, these were particularly brutal and most of which went the distance.
