DARE adds Laursen vs Ray for next event in Bangkok


Self-styled “Coolest” MMA promotion Bangkok’s DARE Fight Sports has announced its first match for 1/2013. Ole Laursen will meet Joe Ray at welterweight in the $1 million dollar tournament series.

Ole Laursen is an MMA and kickboxing veteran who has seen the inside of more high-level rings and cages than most fighters have ever laid eyes on, much less stepped in. The lightweight banger took on Genki Sudo in his first MMA match at the behest of K-1 HERO’s and as a heavy underdog, took Genki a full three rounds. Genki’s career was waning, while Ole’s was just in its nascence, and after a year of personal soul-searching he’ll be back banging it out in front of fans.

Joe Ray was once heralded as the next rising start to come into Strikeforce after training and fighting Muay Thai out of Phuket. He’s since been on a two-year tear through North American regional organizations. Now Ray, out of Tiger Muay Thai, heads back to his defacto birthplace to take on Ole in a sort of “backyard” brawl since both fighters can claim a vast part of their roots in Thailand.
