Stefan Fox announces names for Contender Asia Season 2

During the broadcast of Champions of Champions 2, Stefan Fox (mentor on Contender Asia and also VP of the WMC) announced some fighters that will be involved in the highly anticipated Contender Asia Season 2.

I'm writing this all from memory...

Click on each name for more info on the fighter or coach

The two head coaches for Contender Asia Season 2 are to be:

Clifton Brown (CAN)

Ray Sefo (NZ)

Stefan announced the following fighters as confirmed for the show:

Marco Pique (Holland)

Eli Madigan (Australia)

Cedric Muller (France)

Duane Ludwig (U.S.A)

*These are the names Stefan announced. I know there are other fighters who have already been in the talks for being on the show, some of which I probably mentioned in previous posts.

SPOILER results for Champions of Champions 2

The fights are now over, and we wish Kru a fun and safe journey back home from Jamaica.

So I managed to catch the online PPV stream for CoC2, contrary to what I thought earlier.

A few things: the stream was messy, it cut out many times, it started over an hour late...I'm not satisfied with the service. That said, they are going to let me view the fights (and anyone else who payed for them) as many times as I want on the website in a day's time. I'm not sure but I think people who bought the tv PPV might be screwed. Otherwise...the fights were pretty epic!

If any of these are wrong, I'll correct them as soon as I find out. I was up till 4am watching these fights (3 am JA time), and I missed the last 2...
