Phuket Top Team's Cyrus Washington Interview

  • Published in Kickboxing

PTTAs we announced on Twitter a while back, we've struck up a partnership with Phuket Top Team in Thailand. PTT is is a breath of fresh air in the already crowded gym culture of Thailand. In Thailand obviously Thai Boxing/Muay Thai is at the heart of why fighters will go to Thailand to train, and if you are headed there to train in Muay Thai there are endless amounts of options. The big difference between PTT and most of those gyms is that there is not only a great Muay Thai program, but a focus on Mixed Martial Arts as well. PTT is an all-purpose gym in Thailand that does so much right that it is hard to argue against heading there to train.

On top of that, the instructors and owners are all extremely passionate about combat sports, from Muay Thai to Kickboxing to MMA and have dedicate their lives to it. Of course, the island of Phuket itself is extremely beautiful and not a hard place to find yourself relaxing after a tough workout.

Cyrus Washington is a serious up-and-comer in the Muay Thai and Kickboxing world who is representing Phuket Top Team on Contender Muay Thai, watch this interview as he discusses the show and a lot more.

Saenchai Victorious at Muay Thai Mania Yokkao 5

  • Published in Asia

Saenchai

After the last minute change of not only venues but continents, Muay Thai Mania Yokkao 5 went down without a hitch yesterday in Thailand. The event would have been considered a success even if it wasn't moved on one week's notice, but it really is amazing to look at how they had to move the entire event from Europe to Thailand that quickly and that everything went smoothly. The main event saw a bout between Saenchai and Singdam with both guys trying to win the KO bonus, but Saenchai was just overwhelming and won by points.

  • Saenchai MuayThaiGym won by points vs Singdam Kiatmoo9
  • Sinsamut Sor Klinmee won by points Kom Kop Pechthroungrang
  • Andrea Masini lost by KO ( 2nd round ) Crice Boussoukou
  • Ekapop Sor Klinmee won by KO ( 1st round ) vs Samuel Andoche
  • Iwmiset Pornnarai won by points vs Suedam Kauanjai
  • Namphon PK Muay Thai Gym won by points vs Geofrey Rivière
  • Silvia La Notte lost by points Lommanee Sor Hirun
  • Emmanuel Ulrich lost by points vs Florent Kaouachi
  • Vichanlek Sitpholek won by points vs Loecklong Fhonchaanchonburi

Buakaw Banchamek Vs Abdoul Touré Video

  • Published in Asia

Here is the video from Buakaw's fight (if you can call it that) against Abdoul Touré from August 15th in Chiang Rai, Thailand for a WBC Muay Thai Diamond Championship. This is the second time these two have fought, the first time it wasn't a fairly matched fight and Buakaw won by KO with a body kick. Surprise surprise this fight was not much different and consisted of Buakaw repeatedly knocking down his french opponent with head kicks and elbows until the referee eventually stopped it. There is no doubt Buakaw looks like a beast as usual, but I was asking myself if this was even a fight, or was it fake. I really would like to see Buakaw against some opponents his level, as much as I enjoy a good Buakaw domination this was just too unfair for me, not to mention he didn't even look like he was trying.

K-1 Postpones World MAX Show in Thailand

  • Published in K-1

If the only news that you pay attention to is fighting sports you might not have known that there is currently a bit of political upheaval in Thailand right now. In fact, there was a military coup that went down just days ago, leaving some areas of Thailand under strict military presence. Not all, though, some areas are untouched. Pattaya, where K-1 is planning their K-1 World MAX Finals event, happens to be one of the places under strict curfew. 

K-1 has been monitoring the situation and along with their partners in Thailand have decided to postpone the event for the time being. It might not be until July, but two months for a nation to get itself in order after a government is overthrown is a bit quick and they will wait out the situation before booking another event there. Kind of a bummer, we know, but it seems like the right call for this one.

Science of 8 Limbs Says Goodbye to Lumpinee

  • Published in Muay Thai

Lumpinee

When you think about Muay Thai chances are that Lumpinee Stadium will pop into your head at some point, at least it should. Lumpinee Stadium is perhaps the most famous stadium in all of Muay Thai, as it has housed some of the biggest stars in the sport of Muay Thai and some truly classic fights. Sure, there are other stadiums that have housed some tremendous talent and great fights as well, but Lumpinee's history made it stand out. Lumpinee Stadium opened in 1956 and the old warhorse was showing some serious wear, which led to a new, improved Lumpinee Stadium being built.

On Friday the last event at Lumpinee Stadium was held and the Science of 8 Limbs' Mike LNg spoke with Michael "Chase" Corley, Mark DeLuca, Wayne Gregory and Dave Zuninga about their memories and experiences at Lumpinee Stadium and I highly recommend that you check it out.

Video: When Muay Thai Gets Ridiculous and Stupid

  • Published in Muay Thai

So, muay thai. Muay Thai is a sport that is widely respected the world over for demonstrating some of the best fighting technique and skill, as well as being one of the most exciting sports in the world. Muay Thai has spread throughout the entire world and has taken on a life of its own in different nations, gaining popularity in places like the United Kingdom, Australia and the United States.

Of course, not everything muay thai is high level. There are some places in Thailand that like to take advantage of the national sport and lure in tourists with ridiculous spectacles. This video is just that. This video is from the Reggae Bar in Koh Phi Phi that is best known for letting tourists step into the ring for free booze or food. As you can see, this is not what you'd expect at Lumpinee or Rajadamnern. Trash can lids are definitely not a part of your standard muay thai fight.
