On April 23, 2016, Team Sityodtong LA's undefeated Pro Muay Thai Fighter, Josh "El Gato" Aragon competed in the Group 10 Tournament Semi Finals at Kunlun Fight 43 in Zhangzhou, the biggest K1 event in China.
After 3 rounds of K1 rules (knees with no clinching and no elbows), Josh lost by decision. The first round clearly went to Kong Lingfeng, but Josh came back and took the second round and dominated the third. After almost 24 hours of travel time, Sityodtong LA's Head Coach, Kru Walter Michalowski, and Pro Fighter, Josh Aragon finally reached their hotel. That's coming from Kru Walter and Josh who are no strangers to unusual foreign foods. It's now the "day of" the fight and although it hadn't been the best of conditions, Josh is a professional fighter. He stayed focused, knew he had a job to do and was ready to go to war. Then at 11am while in the lobby of the hotel, Kru Walter and Josh were approached by members of the promoter's staff. They told them that there was an issue with their passports and directed them to an awaiting bus that would take them where they needed to go to resolve it. The bus took them to a local police station, their passports were confiscated and they were detained for three hours with no food, no water and no explanation of why they were being held. Although the interpreter was with them, she too was given no information from the Chinese officials. While at the police station in China, the reality sunk in for Kru Walter and Josh that they were in a communist country, they had no rights and there was no place like home. A couple good things did happen as a result of their experience. One was that they forged new friendships with other fighters and coaches, another was finding out first hand that our American Embassy was on it! A representative said it was illegal to detain a US Citizens for a "work permit" issue and kept in contact to be sure all the Americans had returned home. After the fights, Kru Walter and Josh were asked about a rematch. Will Josh Aragon take a rematch against Kong Lingfeng?
