Biker gangs at muay Thai gala

Apparently this is footage from a big brawl between the Finks and Hell’s Angels somewhere in 2006. You’ll hear the gunfire too if you pay attention

Thanks to Nopstar for the find.

This isn’t the first muay Thai gala I’ve seen turned into a riot but it is pretty intense. It’s one of the reasons I rarely go to those anymore. Except for the (expensive) top galas, there are always problems with security.

  1. One of my students recently attended a local MMA event. When I asked him about the crowd, he said, “I’ve never seen so many bottom feeders in one place before.”

  3. I remember those days, good times, good times.

  4. madness. no need for this. Its a shame becuase Muay Thai will probably get a bad name to all the people who went to this event

  6. I’m guessing a “fink” is a rival biker gang? It is kind of funny (ignoring the property damage and people injured) the bikers fight just like I remember… they do best with one guy on the ground and a bunch of them kicking and punching him.

    San Diego in the early 80’s had a similar thing… someone decided to have body builders, boxers and kick boxers at a Sports Arena event. Not sure why they picked three groups that did not think much of each other. The HA’s were at the ring side tables.

    First the body builders went on and off quickly. Then some Mexican boxing excibitions happened. In between rounds the announcers introduced Alvin Prouder (WKA Welterweight KickBoxing Champ)…. and then all hell broke loose.

    The Mexican boxers started mouthing off at Alvin… Alvin standing in the center of the ring told them to comeon… I remember three boxers, one at a time charging Alvin.

    Alvine hooked three of them in a row – dropping them! All of a sudden there was a scene like the one in the video (luckily this was pre-youtube).

    Me and my buddies from the karate studio raced down the stands to stand with our fellow martial artists.

    By the time we got there… there were no boxers left, only bikers milling about so we took care of business.

    There was not really any contest as the bikers could not fight and the boxers and body builders were no where to be seen.

    Anyway the cops got there and escorted the bikers out…

    I still don’t see what the bikers had a beef with but they joined in and we finished it.

    Looking back on this… it was crazy… kind of par for the course by getting such diverse groups into one hall.

    I’m like you now… I’m not much for going to watch something I can see better from TV.

    • Yup, TV has better seats, better company and less lead poisoning.
      That said, a great match with a good audience is a very special atmosphere. I’d love to watch the KA finals in Tokyo. From all people I’ve talked to, the Japanese put on an amazing show and the crowd is very disciplined. Gotta win the lottery first though… :-)
