Oh yeah.... didn't we already have this show?
Yeah! That's the name! They all went to Thailand and 1/2 of them won the other half got turned to pulp. And then there was Master Toddy (or whatever) who reminded me of one of my dad's old and incredibly perverted/deleusional Thai frends. (Even if the dude happens to be an amazing coach, you can't deny his creep factor)

He's in Manhattan doing TKD/XtremeMA-esque demonstartion of Muay Thai.

When did he claim to have a fight record? As far as I know, Tony Jaa's only aspiration has always been to be the Thai Jackie Chan.

When there's Muay Thai involved, hell yes. I think the other networks should feel bad that Oxygen has manlier reality shows than they do.

Watched the first two episodes last Night was pretty good(ish).
Although, It's the exact same format as the old contender:
1.Intro and theme Music Followed by a 15 mins re-cap
2. Product Shots.
3.A Rivalry forms between two of the fighters on opposing teams (full of product shots)
5.The challenge to see which team gets to pick the fight. (again full of product shots...and as always a TOYOTA!)
6.Team celebrates winning the challenge.
8.Guy gets all emotional talking about his kids.
12.Guy Cries to sad version of theme Music.
13.Credits & Theme Music
