Yves wins Gold!

Yves wins Gold!

Sitan Gym’s youth fighter, Yves Tabarangao, won the IFMA Youth Gold medal last night and is now a World Champion! IFMA is the most prestigious tournament in the world, medaling at an IFMA tournament is a huge achievement.

Yves’ road to the Gold consisted of a total of 3 fights.  His first fight was against Nederland, second fight against Hungary and the Final was against Russia.  This young man trains hard, listens to his coaches and is everything a youth fighter should be.

Congratulations again Yves, we are so proud and can’t wait for you to get home!

Travis Clay vs Topic Results

Travis Clay vs Topic Results

Sitan Gym’s Travis Clay took on Ognjen Topic this last Friday on Friday Night Fights in New York and made history as the first ever Main card Muay Thai match on UFC Fight Pass.  Travis performed amazingly, and showed all that watched just what level he is at.  The ‘W’ was awarded to Topic, but Travis is always a champion in our hearts.

Quote from Owner/Head Trainer at Sitan Gym AZ, Thiago Azeredo:

“So proud Travis Clay performance. After taking this fight, a lot of people said this may be too big of a fight for Travis, but I knew better. Travis made a statement last night while making history as a main event on Friday Night Fights debut on UFC Fight Pass ! Rest easy Travis… rest easy, because the world will remember the name Travis Clay after that, and that’s the ultimate W.”
