    Been watching a lot of Muay Thai lately and noticed that some of the fighters float around in different orgs like Lion Fights, Bellator and Glory. I’ve been watching mma and boxing for a long time and it’s not really something that you see unless a fighter is cut and signs with a different org for money or whatever.

    In Muay Thai is it common to fight in different orgs? And if you hold a title in one org can you hold a title in a different org or unify? Do titles even really matter?

    most fighters don't have exclusive contracts. some do, most don't.


    depends on the title. there is no unification of belts of anything like that. Rajadamnern, Lumpinee and Thailand Title matter. Other titles are whatever.

    Certainly not, but Muay Thai fighters have fought in both. Perhaps that was his meaning.

    @Championstuff You should also check out One Championship they have some good Muay Thai rules fights with MMA gloves, etc.

    For example Yodsanklai was fighting in there recently:
