Magnus ‘Crazy Viking’ Andersson prepares for Las Vegas showdown

The ‘Crazy Viking’ invades Las Vegas on Saturday, March 30 as he takes on US-based Brazilian fighter, Washington Luiz, in a co-main event ‘superfight’ at Lion Fight 53.

Lion Fight Promotions was founded in 2010 and stands as North America’s premier Muay Thai organisation, successfully spreading the dynamic sport around the US and having it televised to a global audience through CBS Sports and AXS TV.

The growth of the sport’s global popularity has accelerated since the rise of the UFC and MMA as Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu are the two fundamental disciplines in MMA, together covering more or less every aspect of unarmed combat.

Andersson signs a four-fight, 18-month contract with Lion Fight that will see him fighting on global stages between now and late 2020.

But how did it all start?

Andersson started learning Muay Thai ten years ago, age 15, in Halmstad, Sweden. He felt he needed to learn to fight after a school playground beating left him wanting never to feel like he couldn’t defend himself again.

He joined his local Muay Thai club along with five friends. The friends dropped out one-by-one but for Magnus the value of what he was attaining was too good to walk away from.

Three years later, the teenager took on his first amateur fight and won.

“That night, I felt something new, something I hadn’t felt before. To stand face-to-face with another man and have to determine who is tougher in front of a large crowd created a feeling inside me that I became instantly addicted to,” he said with conviction.

“From that moment, I knew I wanted to live doing Muay Thai.”

Andersson won 13 fights in a row on his way to becoming Swedish and Nordic Champion.

His first opportunity to visit Thailand came about for the IFMA World Championships in Bangkok. IFMA (International Federation of Muaythai Amateur) is the governing body of amateur Muay Thai consisting of 130 member countries worldwide. Andersson took the sliver medal at the championships and won numerous other prestigious medals before moving to Phuket in November 2016 to embark upon a fighter’s life.

For the past two and a half years, Andersson has trained relentlessly at the highly respected Sitsongpeenong gym where he flies the flag as a sponsored fighter. At 25, he holds a record of 50 fights with 37 wins (11 by KO), 20 of which have been in Thailand where Andersson has been fighting at a very high level since moving to the country.

He has since fought in various countries around the globe including Canada, China, Russia, Croatia and Czech Republic.

In 2017 he competed on Thailand’s televised MX MUAY XTREME along with some of the country’s best fighters. After beating several top class fighters, including a Lumphini Stadium champion (the most prestigious title in the sport), he became champion of the 70kg division– a title he still holds today.

In 2018 he was invited back to the promotion for an event that pit champions against champions, and again he came out victorious against the then 67kg MX champion.

In the same year, Andersson was a regular fixture on the televised Top King World Series which also attracts Thailand’s top fighters. Several memorable victories earned him a title shot in which he narrowly lost out to Isan’s Chujaroen Dabransarakham, a highly regarded Lumphini Stadium champion, in a fiercely fought battle that went to the judges for a decision.

Andersson’s relentless, front-footed brawling style, as well as his eccentric personality in and out of the ring, have earned him vast popularity in Thailand.

“Thais often ask me why I fight. “You can earn more money working in Sweden, why put yourself through such damage and hard work?” they ask.”

“But most foreign fighters don’t fight for money. We fight for the love of Muay Thai. To be motivated by passion rather than money creates a unique drive which is why we see many great foreign fighters,” Andersson attested.

“Most Thai fighters start training at a very young age, encouraged by their parents for financial reasons. For them, it’s hard to believe that people with opportunities to earn more money in a ‘normal’ job would choose to fight for a living instead, as the day-to-day life of a Muay Thai fighter is far from glamorous.”

Andersson’s life as a fighter leaves much to be desired for many of us with ‘normal’ lives. Six days a week he wakes up before sunrise at 6am and embarks on either a hill run, a flat run, stair runs or sprints in the local area. The run ends at the gym at just after 7am where he starts to shadow box before working the bag and pads with his trainer. Depending on the day, he practices a combination of boxing, clinching (close-contact stand-up grappling with knee and elbow strikes and takedowns), sparring and conditioning. Two-and-a-half hours later the morning session ends, giving him enough time to eat and rest before the second run begins at 3:30pm and he does it all again.

In addition to the 12 gruelling sessions per week (two per day, Monday-Saturday), he does three additional strength and conditioning sessions as in most sports, strength can be the difference between a win and a loss.

So is this your training routine in preparation for a fight? I asked.

“No, this is the regular daily routine,” he replied. “Training gets more intense before a fight. We may have to fight at any time without much notice so we’re always prepared. Once a fight has been arranged, I train with more focus and intensity.”

“My coach, Tim, owner of Sitsongpeenong Phuket, analyses my opponent and formulates a game plan which my trainer, Ghi, a former world and Lumphini champion who is a national treasure, helps me to execute.

“I have a great team around me. Tim is the mastermind; I’ve won many fights thanks to his game plans and cornering. Ghi (known in the ring as Sayanoi) is an outstanding trainer whose credentials speak for themselves.”

Recently, Andersson has made some significant adjustments to his diet and training. The addition of a strength and conditioning coach in Synergy_AF’s Justin Wallace, as well as a nutrition sponsorship by local restaurant, Bistro Bang Tao, providing all of the fighter’s meals, have helped him break new ground, as for the first time in his career his weight management is such that it dispels the need to cut large amounts of weight before a fight.

“I used to walk around at 78/79kg whilst training six days a week and would have to diet down to 74/75kg before dehydrating down to 70kg the day before a fight.

“Such regular weight cuts inevitably had a negative impact on my strength. But since following a clean diet through my nutrition sponsor and maintaining a regular strength and conditioning program, I now walk around at 74/75kg leaving only a small water cut before the weigh-in which I then have more than 24 hours to recover from before the fight,” Andersson explained.

The dangers of weight-cuts are often witnessed and governing bodies of combat sports have long mulled over how to prevent casualties by changing the process in which fighters are selected and weighed.

Hospital trips and deaths are not uncommon among fighters due to dehydration.

“A previous girlfriend of mine passed out three times during a weight cut,” Andersson said.

Following the Las Vegas superfight, Andersson will spend the following few weeks holding seminars around the states before flying to Sweden for the first time in a year to hold more seminars and catch up with family.

Then he’s back home to Phuket and back to the 6am grind.

So what’s the pinnacle for someone who achieves most of what he sets out to?

“First of all, I’m coming for the Lion Fight 160lbs belt. After that, my main goal is to win the WBC Muay Thai world title,” he says.

The fighter, who floats in and out of the top ten WBC world rankings, expects that it will take around two years to move up to a position that will earn him a title shot.

WBC world champion by 27 wouldn’t be too shabby.


Lucas Cannon cleans up elite division in Thailand BJJ Competition

On the 13th of March 2019 I decided to go to Pattaya for an upcoming BJJ competition. I chose the cheaper alternative to flying which was the overnight bus ride, it was 16 hours but not so bad as you can sleep through most of it and see all the sights as you drive through thailand.

When i finally got off at Pattaya Sawadee Tour bus station I took a baht bus to Jomtiem Hostel. It was surprisingly nice considering how cheap it was (200 baht/night). I hired a bike and looked around the beaches, attractions and walking street that night.

The next morning was the day of the competition. The organisation was the World Muay Thai Festival and it was hosted at Legend Siam. When i arrived there at 4pm I was blown away by how nice the venue was, it was easily the nicest competition setting I’ve attended. After settling in I helped set up the mat area and weighed in. I warmed up and waited for my name to be called for my weight division to start.

My first opponent was a Thai who was under the Royal Thai Air Force national Judo team. I realised that I couldn’t wrestle with these guys as their throws are superior and the points they get from the throws could cost me the match, so I stayed low and shot in underneath trying for leg locks, in the end of the 5 minutes no points were scored, so I won on advantages (submission attempts)

My second opponent was a wrestler, I know this because of how quick he shot in for my leg as the match started. About 30 seconds in a took him down with a leg lock sweep and finished with a belly down kneebar.

For the final fight of my weight division and to secure first place I had to rematch the first Thai I fought earlier, the match went very similar to the first one, except I won by points from a take down.

The absolute division came soon after. My first match was against a bigger, stronger opponent, so I stuck to my strengths which is leg locks. I ended the match within the first minute or so with a rolling heel hook.

My final match which would secure me 1st place in the absolute was against another member of the Thai national Judo team, so again I chose not to wrestle with him. The match ended quickly as well as I tried for a few quick submissions but the one he tapped to was a straight ankle lock.

Afterwards I took my time to cool down and enjoyed some of the Muay Thai and MMA fights they hosted straight after.

Now I head to Koh Samui on the 24th March for another BJJ comp and then start preparing for my next Muay Thai fight on 8th April. To prepare for that I will be sticking to the fighters schedule we have, while also training BJJ and resistance weight training.

NEWS Chadd “Shark” Collins: Farang Fighter Of The Moment

This past Monday, fans around the world witnessed the shocking KO of Singdam at YOKKAO 25 in Hong Kong. Meanwhile, back in Thailand, fans of the Muay Thai stadium circuit were treated with an equally startling KO. ‘Farang’ fighter Chadd Collins celebrated his win over Sakmongkol Sor Sommai via a left elbow strike that left the latter stretchered out.

In a bid to keep up with the times and attract more crowds, more and more foreign fighters have transitioned into the predominantly Thai scene of stadium Muay Thai promotions. Some of the well-known ‘farangs’ to have made a name in Lumpinee and Rajadamnern in the past include Ramon Dekkers, Jean Charles Skarbowsky, and Damien Alamos. This year in June, French fighter Rafi Bohic made history by winning the Lumpinee Stadium Welterweight belt after defeating top seed fighter, Pongsiri PKSaenchaiGym.

Chadd Collins is another ‘farang’ fighter making a name for himself in the Thailand fight scene. The Aussie has proven his place in the native land of Muay Thai, having held up against the best in the country. The Thais know him by the name of Chad Thor. Saengtiannoi, a fighter name he has adopted for the stadium in respect of his trainer. He has been slowly moving up the ranks of the sport, fighting in numerous promotions such as MX MUAY XTREME and Thai Fight where he faced Muay Thai stars Pakorn and Saenchai. The results were a win and a loss respectively. In his fight against Saenchai, Chadd adopted an aggressive forward-moving strategy that resulted in one of the most evenly-matched fights the legend has seen in a while.

This year, Chadd has also crossed fists with several Thai fighters in the ring of Rajadamnern Stadium (Sor Sommai promotions), which in itself is a highest honor of the sport. A month ago in August, he faced and won via decision over a respectable figure in the current Muay Thai circle, Seksun Or.Kwanmuang. His latest win brings him up the rankings and at this rate, he might soon have a shot at a Championship belt in the prestigious stadium.
