Sinsamut Klinmee says his skills will trump Dmitry Menshikov's power: "I have the upper hand"

Thai fan favorite Sinsamut Klinmee acknowledges that upcoming opponent Dmitry Menshikov may be dangerous with his power but that it's his superior skill that will prove the difference in this fight.

He told Sportskeeda MMA:

"I think I have the upper hand in terms of versatility. Yes, his punches are dangerous. He's a heavy hiter. But I have more than that. I have kicks, knees, and everything else. I believe that if I can time things right, I'll be able to win."

Needless to say, it's going to be absolute fireworks when Sinsamut and Menshikov meet face to face in the ONE Championship ring this weekend.
