Pretty cool documentary. I'm glad they didn't try to make Muay Thai look like some bloodsport and that the two fighters weren't a pair of thugs (unlike Phil Mushnick) but were guys like us with jobs.

I hate to say this about MTV, but that was a damn good show. The next step: True Life: I'm a Dog Brother.

Damn Djimbe, you got me thinking back to the good old days of MTV with Seattle grunge and old school G rap. Good times. :D

Yeah it was really good.

For those of you that didn't see it, its about two experienced thai boxers from America, training to compete in a bare knuckle bout against Thai fighters in Thailand. Both Americans had trained with Master Toddy for over 10 years.

Both of the Americans won their fights, and interestly enough, both have seemingly moved away from Thai boxing. One fighter is concentrating on his career as a DJ and the other plans to make the transition to MMA.

Yea, I thought the show was pretty good as well.

Like others have said, it's good they didn't take the OMGKUMITE!!22? approach.

I rarely watch MTV, but the "true life" series of shows like this one all seem good.

Damn i gotta tivo that ****.


Side note: the only trulife I have ever seen was the one where this crazy ass girl with gigantic fake boobs was smoking crystal meth in her car while she was out in front of some DJ's house stalking him. She kept saying over and over again "he's my baby" "i'll make him love me" "HE DOESN'T DESERVE ME" "**** HIM" "I love him" ..... good show

Aye, I saw that one too, crazy.

That one guys g/f on the MT show was really, really, unsupportive, not to mention the typical rich valleygirl type.

It could've just been how they edited it, but dang.

Been thinking about it a little more today and the show kind of pissed me off.

I'm jealous. I'd give my left nut for a hardcore mt gym like that where I live. Gotta drive an hour and a half away to the Boston area for a good gym :(
