    Contender Asia

    Hmm, I don't see a thread. Just saw the first episode last night on Versus. I was pleasantly surprised. Some annoying things still, but miles better than the boxing version or the girls muay thai show. At least they showed the whole fight, or close to it, and didn't just edit it down to the highlights like they did with the boxing version.

    Pros: Minimal man drama. Good fight (lopsided but good). They showed the whole fight
    Cons: Retarded camerawork, slo mo and music scoring, not enough (any) time looking at the training

    i enjoyed the slowmo **** until they started slowmoing random body shots, i mean a kick to the head slowmo=good but slowmoing a blocked 1,2 then a knee to the ribs every time it happens was just getting old.

    serious probs for that guy not getting knocked out/quiting but i think the thai guy was taking some serious pity on him, his corner was like no elbows take it easy on this guy LOL.

    I actually like the slow motion when used judiciously. I do think it was pretty weak how the training was skipped. I find the training to be the most interesting part of shows like this and I thought it was down right irresponsible to tie two men together in a flat out race down concrete. What the hell does that have to do with fighting? I mean seriously, that could have ended much worse then it did.

    Dude they have aired 1 ep and I am hooked! This is a rad show and I am learning a lot about MT. I like the slow mo since they don't do instant replays...

    Meh, i thought it was ok...Though i expect squerlli to nut himself.

    Repeatedly.

    There promises to be man-drama next week: Small thai dude talks to small french dude "Hey frenchie, Big mouth. Small heart"

    Lol.l


    though, my opinion of the show is this: Inferior thai fighters try to prove their superiority to muay thai'ers from different countries. (i say inferior because of thailand being a poor country, and almost every where else being winsauce)

    Was a good show, but doubt you'd get much out of it if you haven't trained MT or don't know the big names. Yodsanklai's comments make this show, don't want to spoil it but before his 2nd fight he said something which had me on the ground laughing.

    I'm sorry, you think Yodsaenklai is an inferior Thai fighter? Or that all Thai fighters are inferior to fighters from richer countries? If you are saying either of these things... you're retarded. I have no words.

    The fighters themselves?

    No. Hell no. I'm sure a thai fighter is going to win the whole comp. They are bad ass.

    However, thailand sucks. Sure, maybe it has some good tourist attractions/fighting attractions, but, still, it sucks.


    I say "inferior" because, well USA, netherlands, england, france (ugh, even france...), even the united arab emirates > thailand.


    It was a joke. Don't take **** so fucking seriuosly.
