I’ve been ringside for countless Muay Thai fights over the years. I’ve even seen them in Thailand, where the locals are whipped into a frenzy over the gambling aspect while in the ring eight-year olds are knocking each other out with elbows to the dome. But this… this bout is something else.

I don’t know anything about the event in the above video, although I’m guessing it went down somewhere in Thailand based on the stuff written on the walls. However, I do know that in kickboxing events, hitting your opponent with a gong is frowned upon. But whatever. A win is a win.
