Photo of the Day: Fighters Make Weight for Muay Thai at the Mecca

This serves as a reminder that tomorrow night TaKe On Productions and MSG Sports present Muay Thai at the Mecca, which we'll have a man on the ground for. If you want to witness the action yourself, GFL.tv has you covered for $15, about the cost of an It's Showtime event. The card is being headlined by Ryan Madigan and Rigel Balsamico squaring off. Madigan, best known by MMA fans for his lone UFC performance at UFC 96 is a skilled Kickboxer and Muay Thai practitioner, while Balsamico is incredibly well-known in the Muay Thai community, making this an awesome main event.

TaKe On Productions and MSG Sports Muay Thai at the Mecca TV Spot

This Friday TaKe On Productions and MSG Sports bring to the world Muay Thai at the Mecca, from the Theater at MSG in New York City. The Theater at MSG has a ton of history, from Boxing to Basketball and everything in between, seating up to 5,000 when set up for a Boxing ring. To think about Muay Thai in New York moving into such an amazing spot is hard to believe, but TaKe On and MSG have done some great work together. LiverKick will have a man on the scene this friday, but if you are like me and can't make it, check out a stream on GFL.tv for $15USD, or about the amount of an It's Showtime stream.

Aikpracha Meenayothin In Position For Breakout Year

Buakaw's current situation, including pulling out of the fight with Fabio Pinca on March 17 at La Nuit Des Titans in Tours, France may have been a blessing in disguise for Aikpracha Meenayothin.

Aikpracha was already scheduled to make an international appearance on March 31 against Michael Dicks in England. He'll get to dabble into the international scene even sooner though, as he replaced Buakaw to take on Fabio Pinca, who is one of the best non Thais in Muay Thai. This fight with Pinca will be his second international fight after he completely obliterated William Sriyapai in July of last year in the United States.

Two international fights in such a short time period against good foreign fighters could do wonders for his career and result in a breakout 2012. It's still uncertain if he'll face Michael Dicks on the 31st, as it's possible he may be fighting on April 3 at Lumpinee Stadium instead. If he were to fight Michael Dicks, Aikpracha would be defending his WMC World Title. Along with his WMC World Title, he's also the current Lumpinee Stadium champion at welterweight, which he won by stopping Prakaysiang Kaiyanghadaogym in the first round last month.

I always love when Thais get international opportunities. It opens the door for bigger paydays and more exposure on an international level that they greatly deserve for being the best strikers in the world. I fully expect Aikpracha to beat Pinca, and also beat Dicks if that fight happens. Not only do I expect him to win, I feel he'll really make a big statement. He's got a great style for fighting internationally, with a lot of aggression and power in his hands.

You can watch Aikpracha fight Fabio Pinca on Saturday at muaythaitv.com. The whole event is only $9.90 USD and you can pay with Paypal or credit card. Click "Read More" to check out Aikpracha's last fight where he won the Lumpinee Stadium welterweight title:
