While eating our lunch a guy came in and was handing out flyers for some Muay Thai fights later down at Thong Sala- it was like 9 fights for 600 baht.
Night rolled in and it was time to roll out to the fights- we tried to recruit zee germans but the 600 baht was not in their budgets. So we rolled down and they now had the alley blocked off with big metal walls. We got in, bought some beers and various meats on sticks and waited for the place to fill up. Eventually it was packed and the weird music started followed by weird dancing in the ring, and followed by some ass kickin Muay Thai action. Some of the fights weren't that hot but others were straight brawls. When the fight was for money or between two Thai guys they were really tight. On the other hand some of the guys didn't seem to respect the craft all that much and were there just to say they fought in Thailand- these were not very good fights. Overall the whole experience was a good time that I would suggest doing when in Thailand.
