Ep. 73 - IFMA, Team USA, & Supporting The Sport
< 1 day ago
In this episode of The Striking Corner, Vinny and Eric discuss the recent IFMA Muaythai World Championships, supporting Team USA (USMF), and how we as Americans need to understand that the pro and amateur model we use in the United States is out of step with the rest of the world.
The guys also rant about fighters pulling out of fights in order to preserve their undefeated record, social media fighters, and why fighters should be choosing gaining experience, fighting against the best fighters in the world, and growing the level of the sport over "getting paid" or "going pro".
This podcast may piss a few people off or open some eyes, but the goal is to educate and start (or continue) the conversation about growing the sport in the US and increasing the level to compete on par with the major teams worldwide.
The guys also talk about The Striking Corner's new official clothing brand, Striking Professional.
