Muaythai in America is booming! We can see this with regular large fight cards that Lion Fight has been putting on, featuring most of the best Nak Muay North America has to offer as well as importing top Thai’s such as Yodsanklai. Friday night saw the 10th installment of Lion Fight with the main event being Yodsankali vs Chike Lindsay. Most fo the fights went the way expected but with a big upset of Matt Embree defeating Kevin Ross on points. I’m not gonna spoil the rest of this for you, but watch out for the huge KO from the ladies fight.
I really wish there was someone putting on a big fight card like this regularly in South Africa, I think it will help boost the community as there definitely is an audience for it separate to the MMA community.
