    Thai Fight Paris starting right now. Not expecting much but I'll be watching.

    Anyone know what their business plan is? Do they make any money? I went to one show, can't remember when exactly but it was probably 2010 or 11. Whichever one Patrice Quarteron won the 4 man tournament and Buakaw-Kulebin. Free entry and only a 80 baht taxi ride away so why not but have been wondering since then what is the point, exactly. Do they make good money from sponsors and tv deals?

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong but don't they receive funding from the government/military?

    There are not a traditional promotion being run to make money. They are supported by their sponsors which one of the main ones is amazing thailand which i believe is an arm of the thai tourism authority and another is channel 3 which the military owns. They basically just put the events on as an advertisement to get people to visit thailand and to promote thai nationalism inside thailand

    Thanks that's pretty much what I assumed but wasn't sure. Definitely comes across as a quasi-promotion. I miss getting T Sports on my satellite feed and watching the nightly rundowns of the stadium fights.

    Sorry if all of this has already been asked before, but any idea what the Thai fighters are paid?

    it really all depends on the organization/promoter but most top guys at raja and lumpinee top out at 100k baht a fight with only a handful getting more than that (sangmanee seems to be the top paid stadium fighter these days and he got 250k baht for his last fight but there are probably only 5 guys getting more than 100k). Now that is only for the real big name guys who can bring in a crowd as there are champions being paid in the 40-60k baht range as well. Thai fight pays significantly more with yodsaenklai said to be getting close to a million baht a fight and guys like saiyok and sudsakorn getting around 500k baht a fight.

    Wanchai is a good counterexample to the idea that you need to have dimensions like Petmorakot and Dieselnoi and Wanpadet, if you want to be a really good clinch fighter.

    Does anyone know how Wanchai came to leave his old camp and end up at Kiatmoo9? He seems like an odd fit for them.

    The short clinchers are the best to watch. Its like watching an angry badger attacking a larger animal.

    I liked PTT in that fight.

    Tengnueng looked like shit.

    Somehow they only post the first round of the Youssef fight.

    Sad to see Ikyusang give up like that. He should be fighting at 67kg. That guy was too big.

    I just meant the same card. Here is Ikyusang's fight:



    He used to be a raging destroyer but now he's at that familiar stage of lazy performances a weight class too high.

    Usually if you click on the video, the phonetic English translation of the Thai is in the comments.

    Why would he hardly train for an opponent like Panpayak? Seems like an excuse tbh.

    Hopefully Superlek can win this again and show the last fight was not a fluke. I wonder what weight it will be at. Superlek looked good against Sangmanee at 130. I think that weight suits him nicely.

    What's the story with Wirachai? Seems like he hasn't fought in the last year, I thought he was done
