Kung Fu Factory and 505 Games have announced that international Muay Thai fighting sensation Malaipet "The Diamond" Sasiprapa will be a part of their upcoming title, Supremacy MMA
and released a video to show off the most recently announced competitor.
505 Games also sent along a little background on Malaipet, giving us a better sense of what drives him to be one of the best fighters in the world.
Malaipet spent his early childhood on his family’s rice farm until the tragic death of his mother at age 5. The family was devastated and his father left Malaipet and his siblings behind to seek better-paying work in Bangkok. Left to look after his sister and grandmother, Malaipet started fighting for money in order to pay for his sisters’ schooling. Recognizing that his son could further contribute to the family’s income, his father sent Malaipet to a Muay Thai training camp. Malaipet was only six-years old.
When Malaipet reached adolescence, he was already a force to be reckoned with. After fighting more than 250 shin-splitting fights in Bangkok, he earned his first real win and captured the World Intercontinental Championship – launching him into international stardom.
A couple of months ago, it was revealed that the release of Supremacy MMA
, the only MMA game available this year, would be delayed
until September. If this game has your interest piqued, be sure to check out the retailer specific pre-order incentives
