the contender asia finale.
like finally. we came early in a taxi. grabbed a drink. met some familiar faces. and went to search for our seats. holy shit. my bro went, "are those really our seats?" and i went, "i'm good." coupled with a smirk. we sat on the front row, metres away from the ring. i was psyched.
the girls undercard match made me think. i seriously want to take up muay thai now. that and yoga. cause i want to be fighting next season's finale. heh. me, a nak muay? we'll see. fyi: nak muay = boxer/fighter. gawd. i can think of my possible wai khru right now.
so, what went down?
4 hours of muay thai. 2 undercard matches. 3 fights from the previous contestants. soren vs sean. zack vs zidov. rafiq vs dzabhar. and the match that determines the winner of the contender asia. spoilers ahead! yodsaenklai vs john wayne parr.
possibly the best fight ever la. everyone was screaming and up on their feet. it was awesome. i was rooting for both of em actually. the best muay thai fighter vs the legendary farang in muay thai. both guys rock. and i can't decide who i want to win. in the end, both kicked ass. especially john wayne. dude is old but he's quick! the squat move was ridiculous. i remember shrieking and slamming my bro's arm. it was THAT exciting. well, if you 'get it' la.
anywho, i won't yabber much cause most are not familiar with the sport and the terms i might use. so yeah. unless you're interested, i don't mind yakking about it. heh. i'll let the photos do the talking then. ooh.. i went clickety-mad, i swear. my battery died after the night ended. even though i wanted to get some more photos of a certain someone in stripes. dude is popular. i don't get why i'm SO jealous. does. not. make. any. sense. at. all. heck. maybe i'll cause a scene if i went to the after-party. haha..
here's the photos folks.
my favourite guy, soren. sigh..
the fight of the night. one word. awesome.
i've got more photos HERE
! haven't uploaded everything though.
i'm sorry if i spoiled the suspense for those who will be watching the show on channel 5.
