Videos are after the jump, just talking Yokkao up here
For those of you who didn't know, yesterday (Jan. 21, 2012) Milan, Italy was host to Yokkao Extreme 2012. Yokkao manufactures Muay Thai equipment and sponsors quite a few elite fighters. Buakaw, Saenchai, Sudsakorn, Pajonsuk, and the Petrosyan brothers, just to name a few, were all participants at the event that ran both Thai and K-1 rules bouts. The only videos out there at the moment are some short cell phone videos, and some very low quality footage someone got recording the jumbotron. I've read on a few sites that the event will air on Eurosport on March 1st so we should all have quality videos availiable to us after then. I'll post the match-ups and I'll leave the results out, but if you'd like to know go here.

Save for the first four bouts, I'm familiar with every fighter on the card. It's a shame we couldn't see it live as it was indeed stacked.
Continuing in likewise fashion this post will have five bouts, and since this is Face Bones part 2 (Part 1 here) all fights end with a knockout. Under each video I'll post how far to go into it if you don't wanna watch the whole thing.
