    Lion Fight is the biggest US muay thai promotion.


    Not really high level, but they can put on good fights from time to time.

    I highly recommend Lion Fight. What they lack in top talent they make up for in high aggression and violence. The top guys in Thailand have defense so good you rarely see the same amount of sheer carnage.

    If it doesn't allow elbows then it's not Muay Thai. Lion Fight allows elbows...

    Certain states do, but not countrywide. CA, NV, NY where most MT activity takes place allows elbows.
