The past Saturday, Team Ultimate’s Joseph Valtellini competed on the huge Muay Thai In America event in California. This event was in celebration of the king of Thailand’s 85th birthday, so the only way to celebrate is to have a stacked Muay Thai fight card! Joseph faced another tough competitor, Mehdi Baghdad. After feeling defeat for the first time, this would be a huge test for Joseph to see if he can still hang with high level competition and to see if he adjusted from his last fight.
The main thing that can be said about the match is that Joseph Valtellini was a beast! Despite having a cut on the top of his head by an elbow that covered him in blood, he still out struck his opponent! He used a lot of combinations and leg kicks that his opponent has no answer for. Other than getting elbowed, he dominated the fight and battered his opponent up to win by a clear unanimous decision!
This win showed the improvements that Joseph made after his last fight which has made him a more dominate athlete. We’re all extremely proud of his performance and hope to see his continuous climb up the rankings ladder!
