AKA Thailand’s own, Manel Kape, is headed to the UFC. Kape signed a 4-fight deal at AKA Thailand headquarters that will see the feared bantamweight joining the talent-rich roster of the UFC.
Manel Kape (15-4) spent his last 9 fights in the Japan-based RIZIN promotion. He capped off his run there on a 3-fight KO/TKO win streak that culminated in beating Kai Asakura to capture the RIZIN World Bantamweight Championship. Kape is bringing some serious momentum with him going into this new venture against the UFC’s best.
Manel tirelessly trains at AKA Thailand and it was a no-brainer that he would become a world champion. Signing to the UFC is a testament to that hard work and we are excited to see what he is going to do in the promotion!
