Australian Fighting Championship

The Zombie Retuns

Oscar Kong has been somewhat of a phenomenon since joining the AFC last year. He entered the promotion as a renowned brawler whom was comfortable sitting in the pocket trading leather much to the euphoria of the crowd. His chin is phenomenal; never have a seen a martial artist take the shots that Oscar has and keep on marching forward.

Based on his entertaining style, Oscar was given a call up to the first AFC and Kunlun Fight co-promoted MMA card last year, and it was an experience Oscar thoroughly enjoyed:

“Feeling great lucky enough to fight on that big show”

On that evening, Oscar fought the unorthodox Luke Spears in what turned out to be a wild scrap. Unfortunately for Oscar, the puzzle that is Luke Spears was a little too hard to solve and Oscar dropped a Unanimous Decision. Oscar seemed to struggle to implement his game plan, which eventually led to his downfall. It is however safe to say that Oscar isn’t glowing in his opinion of Luke:

“What I see when I fighting Luke Spears’s from Luke’s eye after I land some punch he doesn’t really want be in the cage. Luke try not engaging the fight. His ground and pound; not even pounding hard feels more like massage. I don’t know if anybody around the cage could hear it; when Luke’s corner screaming pound the fuck out him, I was turning my head look at his coach said go fuck yourself. That how relax I was. For now I will say that lazy”

Oscar feels the loss didn’t have a lot to do with the capability of his opponent, more so Oscar’s lazy approach to the fight. There’s a golden rule in any sport and that is that you never overlook an opponent; it seems Oscar may have done just that when he fought Luke and as a result he has learnt a valuable lesson:

“Never lazy always aggressive in the cage. I’m so sorry for that embarrassing fight”

It would seem that there is no love lost between Oscar and Luke and the bad blood remains. Just recently a relatively entertaining ‘conversation’ emerged on Facebook, however Oscar really isn’t interested in elaborating:

“For a fighter always have to be respectful. Crowds know what it looks like in cage”

Moving on from Luke, Oscar is now preparing to face Reza Almasi at AFC 22 in Melbourne. Reza is a quite experienced mixed martial artists and it will takes Oscar’s very best performance if he is to pit him away and grab that allusive ‘W’:

“He looks pretty strong; older more experience. I will try my best for beat him”

Reza will bring forth a powerful wrestling arsenal and via XFC Australian Top Team, Oscar will be specifically focussing on the key elements to which he’ll simply need to be better in order to defeat Rezza:

“Paul will be my key coach. I’m working on my BJJ and wrestling a lot”

Although Oscar’s training camp will focus on Wrestling and BJJ, that doesn’t mean that he’ll be changing the way he approaches the fight and as a result he is only expecting one outcome:

“I expecting a knock out as always”

Come April 7 Oscar will be the hometown fighter and as he’s accustomed to, a vocal and supportive crowd will greet him when he steps into the cage to compete. Oscar will definitely draw energy from this and appreciates the support as he continues his journey to mixed martial arts super stardom: 

“I wish crowd screaming my name. And like me as becoming a good fighter”
