The two brothers have signed contracts to fight 3 fights in the professional MMA promotion Instinct (in the USA)
This is a huge move for the two boys as they will be bringing a level of muay thai to MMA that has only been shown before by fighters like Cosmo Alexander, Rambaa Sombet and Vuysisile Colossa.
In making the move to MMA the brothers also had to move away from there home in Siangboxing and venture to Thailand’s No. MMA training facility – Phuket Top Team.
At Phuket Top Team the Pinto brothers will be able to work with 2 black belts (3rd degree Prof. Olavo Abreau and Prof Rodrigo Praxedes) as well as Wrestling, Conditioning, boxing and MMA…. alongside the stacked fight team at PTT.
The move to PTT the seriousness of the two brothers to truly absorb and excel in the sport of MMA.
One thing i know for sure…. these 2 boys will never abandon there Muay Thai skills and background. We can expect world class muay thai in the cage.
