    Calling all Nak Muay

    YouTube - Contender Muay Thai

    News flash fuckers. The Contender Asia (and yes that's what I'm fucking calling it becuz it doesn't sound as stupid) is coming to America. YAY! Versus isn't exactly public television but hey, you take what you can get.

    My question: Will the show breed idiots like TUF did for MMA?

    Now strictly on a media level the only Muay Thai the USA has been exposed to in combat sports would be the WCL (which royally blows) and MMA shows. In a few months am I going to see assholes wearing John Wayne Parr shirts and replacing the words "Shut the **** up man, I train MMA" with "Shut the **** up man, I train Muay Thai, we use ELBOWS!". I mean I'm all for this since it's my own personal sport (even though I does loves other combat sports) but how bad do you think the back lash will be? Will ATT start breeding Muay Thai McDojos? Will fuckers start break dancing while doing the Ram Muay (I swear to god I will start shooting motherfuckers if I EVER see that).

    The marketing for it makes it seem a bit more dignified than TUF. Notice the soothing voice of the announcer, and the Hans Zimmer-esque epic music, instead of "ARE YOU READY FOR THE BLOODIEST ON EARTH!?!?" and "Let the Bodies Hit the Floor" playing once again in the background.

    It was a great show. At least it's more exposure for muay thai... that's good, right?

    We already had the nut riders in Australia's MT before Contender Asia but not much of a popularity boom from the show. Maybe +50% noobs per lesson who come for a week and then quit. Unfortunately a lot of our gym's top fighters have pretty much all gone to mma, it hasn't taken off in Aust yet but give it 5 more years and we'll have those TUF gangstas as well :(.
