After scoring a stoppage win over Johan Tkac at GLORY 28, Josh Jauncey was on hand to watch Sittichai Sitsongpeenong work his way to another, lightweight contender tourney win. Was Jauncey impressed with his former opponent’s performance?

Recently Jauncey appeared on Full Contact Fighter Radio, and during the segment, he was asked to weigh-in on Sittichai’s tourney victory. Jauncey fought the Thai star last June in the finale of another lightweight tournament. Sittichai won the bout via unanimous decision, and went on to challenge champion Robin van Roosmalen in November, but lost via split decision.

At GLORY 28, the 100 plus fight vet scored decision wins over Davit Kiria and Marat Grigorian to lock up another bout with van Roosmalen.

“Sittichai was Sittichai,” Jauncey said. “He was who he always is. I did watch the fights; they were good. He was Sittichai. It seemed like he’s been working his hands a bit more. His left hand looked sharp, especially against Grigorian, he was clipping that down the middle quite a lot.”

“Sittichai was being Sittichai,” added Jauncey. “Hiding behind that left kick as he does.”

To read Jauncey’s thoughts on his win over Tkac, head here. GLORY has yet to announced when Sitsongpeenong will face van Roosmalen again.
