    Never heard of him. Seems like a gimme fight for Smokin' Jo.

    Always loved ONE. Their events in Myanmar are filled with Burmese boxing matches. Despite the MMA ruleset all of them compete so they just do it in the cage with gloves it is wicked. This is awesome news, very good for the sport of Kickboxing.

    Rofl, as if some paper champ from that no-clinching ruleset poses a threat to a legendary Thai like Smoking Jo.

    Soon to be 85-3 after Smokin' Jo rolls him like a blunt and sparks fire on that ass. Petro is about to get smoked...

    In all seriousness though why would they make the main event KB rules? Hopefully the ref is really permissive with the clinch. If Smokin Jo clinches Petro again the ropes/cage and TKOs him with his knees to the thighs it will be legendary.

    Hope it's muay thai rules. MMA gloves benefit Muay Thai more than kickboxing, since it's easier to clinch.

    Petro hasn't taken a mt fight in forever, I doubt he'd start now. Jo looked good as a kickboxer vs Zhao Yan, though obviously it's a huge step up.

    I personally love the idea of Muay Thai with 4 oz gloves. Makes hand trapping easier as well.
