Liveblog: NY Showdown Part 1
MMA Journalist is here in Chinatown in Flushing, Queens for New York Showdown, a Muay Thai show featuring competitors from as far away as Holland and as close as Astoria. There should be about ten fights on tap, and some of the more notable names (ie, names I recognize) include Rami Ibrahim, who fought Tiger Schulmann ace kickboxer Shennen Maceo at a Ring of Combat, and Greg Lachaga, who actually fought at New Jersey's first amateur MMA show ever back in 1979. According to the event flyer, traditional Thai boxing rules will be used, which means that competitors will be dipping their hands in resin then broken glass before bouts. Should be fun.
