PPT fighter’s Rafael Fiziev Matrix Lean Back Video went viral

Rafael Fiziev PhuketTopTeam from Kyrgyzstan performed amazing Matrix Muay Thai Lean Back in his last fight against Thai top level fighter Sorgraw Petyindeeacademy at the Toyota Marathon show. Fiziev seemed to defy gravity & physics on the lean back. His head went below his waist and then straight back up into full posture. The technique happened right as the bell is sound.

For a couple of days this video became viral and got 2.7+ million Views and 29000 shares on Facebook, made Rafael famous all over the globe.

The ref jumped in because it was the end of the round, not because Fiziev unlocked some kind of cheat code. The bad news? Petyindeeacademy won the match. The good news? Fiziev’s move is the only thing people will remember from it.

The video of Fiziev embracing The Matrix effect was even shared by Dana White, the president of UFC.


Rafael is also 2-0 MMA fighter with some big fights coming up this year. Remember his name!

Talking about amazing Lean Back, it’s impossible not to mention Thai fighter Lerdsila PhuketTopTeam who just lives in The Matrix. Lerdsila showing the Lean Back in all of its glory!

At PTT we pride ourselves on an intelligent style of Muay Thai, Boxing & MMA striking – hit, hurt, avoid & counter.
