2 MMA Bouts Added To S-1 Fighting


S-1 Fighting LogoFinally, MMA bouts have been added to S-1 Fighting’s hybrid Muay Thai card. One of Quebec’s hottest prospects Jonathan “District” Meunier (5-0) will take on France’s Julien Piednoir (5-3) while Luxembourg transplant Abdel Medjedoub (3-0) meets UFC veteran DaMarques Johnson (15-15).  A third bout featuring Yan Pellerin is currently being discussed . The match ups were first reported by Ken Wong.

Jonathan Meunier, who trains out of Tristar Quebec, has been one of Canada’s best kept secrets at 170 lbs. Currently undefeated at 5-0 with five straight finishes, “District” has continued to step up in competition every single bout and he continues to exceed expectations every fight with wins over the likes of Lloyd Galindo, Yannis Jacquet and Dave Leduc.

Julien Piednoir is a native of Montpellier, France and currently trains out of the ABS Team. He started off his career with four straight wins but has hit a bumpy road of late going a dismal 1-3 in his last four outings and will look to turn things around when he tangles with Meunier.

Abdel Medjedoub may be a native of Luxembourg but he currently resides in Montreal and trains out the illustrious Tristar gym. Winning fights has not been an issue for Abdel, but staying busy has as he made his pro debut in 2009, fought once in 2010, and last competed in 2013. Having won all three of his bouts by way of TKO has made Medjedoub a highly touted “prospect” and this will be the first time fans can witness the juggernaut with Tristar training under his belt.

DaMarques Johnson, a UFC veteran who trains out of Jeremy Horn’s Elite Performance Gym, once won two bouts in a row inside the Octagon over the likes of Edgar Garcia and Brad Blackburn. Since then, “Darkness” has hit a very rough patch in his career after a three fight skid caused him to receive his walking papers. He made the transition to the regional scene where he continued his bumpy road bringing his current winless streak to six in a row.

S-1 Fighting is a Muay Thai organization that features a limited clinch game bridging the gap between Kickboxing and Muay Thai it is run by former TKO promoter Stephane Patry. Their debut event goes down November 27th from the Tohu in Montreal, Quebec.
